The Train Cellar on Main Street in Mt Forest is the place to go for all your model railway needs. Having looked at their website and their facebook page, I can confirm that this is for the serious hobbyist. I liked the sign, and the fact that the red and blue matched the M&M meat shop sign further down the street.

Participating in signs, signs

  1. Colour coordination in Mt Forest.

  2. It is a cute sign! And looks like a cute street too.

  3. A neat colourful sign for a store with big boys toys. Reminds me of
    George’s Trains that for years was located on Mount Pleasant Rd. in Toronto.

  4. even though I’m not a train hobbyist, I think I might like browsing the store

  5. Complementing signs! Now that is very clever advertising! One highlights the other! The train sign is a really unusual, captivating shape!

  6. Is it actually in a cellar or on the street level? I like the sign.

  7. nice to see businesses such as this are still doing strong in this economy.

  8. I like the play on the various meanings of cellar/seller, too. The look of this streetscape is very pleasing to the eye, Lesley. I am a bit of a friend to train fanatics, but have never been fanatically involved myself.

  9. Neat sign, great colors, and a nice play on words too.

  10. That would be a fun place to browse around!

  11. Its a quaint little town with cute signs.

  12. Nice to know that there is still an interest in model trains. Most folks seem too attached to their i-phones, i-pads, droids and other electronic gadgets to get involved in a hobby.

  13. i always enjoy your angle shots. i wonder what the Train Cellar sells.:p

  14. There is nothing in this world like a model train with all of its tracks and other goodies. My BFF’s father had one that took up the entire basement. It was a dream come true. He had everything imaginable. I would love to go in this store just to see what displays they had. What a great find. Just wish I had been there with you. genie

  15. Nice signs and I like the colors. Do both shops belong together?

  16. […] This building that now houses a restaurant seems to have been Freeman’s Shoes in another life. This is across the street from this previous sign post […]
