1990 we (Hilmar langbrand and Michael Weiss) founded after long discussions and under the impression, that the last two store for model railroading had closed, the “Modellbahnecke” in the Braunschweiger Str. 22. This shop had about 70 m² and we offered all the specialities for model railroading fans. So we offered companys like Woodland, Peco in addition to the standard vendors. The opening was in September 1990 and our employee Michael Wevering supported us very much.
During the years we had to learn, that turnover is not done with the special items for only few specialists, but instead with the items of the standard vendors that are meeting the requirements of the normal customer much better. After 9 years of operation we decided to move to a new larger store. We planned to extend our offer to slot racing, plastic kits and more model cars. But the needed room was hard to find, because we needed a cheap, easy to find, large shop. A long search was started but after nearly 2 years we found what we needed.
The new store:
1999 we were able to design our new store with approx 900m². 500m² is the real sales room. Now we thought, so many place, now we can grow. But very soon we found out, that even such a large store has a limit. Today all the vendors are coming with an own shop system and thats the reason, why we are changing our shop layout again.
