When was the last time you actually saw a NEW train shop? Keith Lipske has done just that. he and his wife Pam Yano have opened Timberline Train Shop in downtown Downers Grove IL.
I can only applaude the guts and obvious love for the hobby. I noticed the very nice looking shop while in the burbs on business, a friend calling it out to me. While it wasn’t open, (They are open Tues thru Sat) I coulden’t help but notice how sharp it looked. It’s in a very nice area on the main street of down town Downers Grove.
Kieth doesen’t carry our products (yet) and I don’t care. We wish him great success. If you’re within 50 miles go out for a visit (you might mention us).
But for occasional shows, we are a on line business, but as a hobby we need brick and mortar hobby shops for the health of our hobby.
The address for Timberline is 5228 Main Street, Downers Grove, Illinois 60515.
The phone number is (630) 324-6136
This is Dave. Did a little research, Timberline has actually been open since December of 2010. Their hours are 10AM-5PM Tuesday - Saturday. They specialize in HO and N scales.
