Thank you for bringing some fantastic European lines to North America! I feel like a kid at Christmas every time a parcel from your store arrives. Very easy shopping and ordering.
I put my first of five purchase order just one year ago and my experience with you is excellent. The web site is amazing, easy to sail through it and prices are most of the time cheaper than other places. I can say that I visit many other dealers in Europe and USA before I put a new purchase order. Also when I had some question and call by telephone the answer is always immediately.
According to my records, I've been a customer of Euro Rail Hobbies for more than a decade. It was Walter who introduced me to Maerklin Digital back in 2002 when I bought the handsome Bavarian mallet BR 96 in ochre livery. Other locomotives were to follow; Viessmann catenary, building kits, trackage, electronics--and, gratefully, spare parts! Walter and his splendid crew can supply all the trains and accessories a model railroader could want. Like many in the hobby, I roam about websites, and have had other sources before I discovered EuroRail Hobbies, but for me ERH is the very best in service, in giving advice--and in price, even with the international transaction fee the banks tack on. The website is superb, and I visit it regularly. What it comes down to is trust--Walter Menzel, family and crew, are merchants and human beings you can trust.
