George's original success was based on sales of a wide range of model trains, an excellent repair service, accepting trade-ins, knowledgeable and enthusiastic staff, a well-stocked store, and always an emphasis on personal attention. Today's George's Trains still offers model railroad collectors, hobbyists, and enthusiasts the same essential elements of the original business - through the internet in addition to on-site stores.
