Our store name comes from the fact that we enjoy traveling to Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine and have yet to see with our own eyes our favorite large New England beast - the Moose. So when it came time to name the store, we immediately thought of the fact that "Moose" rhymes well with "Caboose" and the rest is history...
Founded in 2002, The Moose Caboose humbly began as a home based, part-time business and grew into a full service model train and R/C store. With over 40 years of model railroad hobby experience and over 15 years of retail experience, the family owned and operated business is well known in the Central Maryland region as a premier supplier of quality, affordable, model train and R/C products.
Beginning in an approximately 400 sq. foot location, The Moose Caboose expanded to its current location in 2006 of nearly 1,200 sq. foot and is filled with an impressive variety of model railroad products. The store is amply stocked with HO, N, O and G-Scale products and accessories. An in-store demonstration layout allows customers to see HO, N and O-Scale locomotives in action and also how a DCC system works. The store is brightly lit, clean and well laid out, so items are easy to see and find.
We truly believe in the quality of the products we sell and that much pleasure can be received from hobbies without tremendous cost. Affordable, quality products offer the best of both worlds and continue to be our mission in best serving our customers.
Step outside the store and you will notice a G-Scale garden on the side of the building. For those who visualized needing a lot of space to get into the G-Scale (Garden) hobby, this small, yet pleasant garden shows what can be the beginning of a fun and lifetime hobby.
Free store-front parking and being handicap accessible is another reason why The Moose Caboose is preferred by so many loyal customers.
With the expansion of the retail store space in 2006, we created an expansive area for R/C products and parts. In addition, you'll likely see demonstrations of the R/C products outside the store when weather permits. By checking our Workshops & Event Calendar page on the website, you'll notice that R/C demonstration events or activities are held several times throughout the year. We strive to not only sell quality R/C products, but service what we sell.
We believe that hobbies are life-long and we strive to promote the model railroad hobby as much as we can. We support local model railroad clubs and participate in hobby related events frequently. Please visit our Workshop Calendar page to view our many planned activities throughout the year.
To us, a happy customer is a life-long customer and we strive to be that one place in Sykesville/Winfield you like to come to, year after year.
For those of you already frequenting The Moose Caboose, please accept our sincerest gratitude for your continued patronage. For those of you considering a visit to the store, we welcome the opportunity to serve you in the future.
