My visit today was my first one and it was brief as I was wanting to get home. I had been out of town for a couple of weeks on business and wanted to bring my grandson something back. He is a “serious” train enthusiast at three. Being unfamiliar with the area I googled toy trains and Tiny Tim’s popped up. It was about thirty minutes off my route but so worth it. Tiny Tim’s is housed in an older building that I found charming. To have the railroad literally steps from the front door only adds to that. The space IS packed but accessible. The emphasis is on trains and trucks but I believe a child would be hard pressed to not find something of interest. Some unique items. Not a box store type of selection and not meant to be. A lot for the adult enthusiast as well. The prices may be higher than online but you get a real person to talk to. I’m a firm believer in supporting “mom and pop” because you get face to face interaction. Personalized service. It gives value to the shopping experience that is impossible to receive online. For me that’s worth the extra cost. I believe I was waited on by the owner and have to say she was extremely helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. I cannot wait to go back with grandson in tow. He will love it. I highly recommend a visit if in the area.~ Ellen R.

Great model train store for the O-Scale 3 rail enthusiast, novice or anyone who loves trains! It’s literally steps away from a very active mainline, 2 Amtrak passenger trains stopped during our visit! Staff is very knowledgeable and friendly!!
Will come back next time we are in the area!!~ Henry J.
Such a GREAT place to bring your family to find unique treasures! Locally owned an operated so the customer service is AMAZING!! Everyone is very friendly and willing to go the extra mile. We drive an hour and twenty minutes to come from Charlottesville because Tiny Tim’s is such a great place!!!!~ Brad P.

What a gem! The staff is friendly, knowledgeable, and really enjoy their jobs. An added bonus was seeing a train go by outside during our visit.~ Sue E.
A lot of stuff packed into a small place. The location is great for railfanning. CSX 2 track mainline is right out the front door.~ Shawn S.
