Standard Gauge and Others at Amatos
Well look at that, they even have a few standard gauge pieces hanging around. And frankly, one's that I kind of like! The really nice thing about this store is that if you asked, they would probably find more standard gauge between their other store and local collectors. Seems as though they buy old trains and toys but not for resale. They are trying to start a collection/museum to show the public. I'll post some pictures of some of their museum pieces later on...
By the way, this shop is in the middle of down-trodden New Britain. Not the greatest area but I have been to worse. I see why they like it though, their space is absolutely huge and the building is clearly prewar. Very old and it looks like it is in good shape.
