    Purchse of Tenshodo Ho scale 4 8 8 4

    by Warren Denmead , 02/10/2011

    Hi. I have been seaching for an early run Tenshodo Ho scale Big Boy for some time. I found one at Caboose Hobbies after they were recomended by Info Bill. I have found the staff at Caboose very amiable and efficient with prompt attention to my requirements. I am very pleased with the locomotive which was accurately described and well photographed. I am looking foward to future dealings with this company. They seem to be a very honest and fourthright company.

    I've been a Caboose customer for over 25 years. We here in the Denver metroplex are very fortunate to have this amazing store in our own backyard. When friends visit, I always find an excuse (like I need one) to take them there. And, I never leave without purchasing something for my N Scale layout, even if I didn't really need it just then. I've actually had out of town business associates, of all ages, insist that we make room in our schedule to visit Caboose. We, again, never leave without our arms full. My wife even likes to visit, especially with the grandchildren. The staff is knowlegeable, very helpful, and most of all treat you like an old friend. They are more than willing to share their vast experience, are never arrogant, and if they don't have it in stock, they will get it. Geez...only a 1000 words? Not enough to do Caboose justice. Ya just gotta go and enjoy.
