Hello and welcome to FNQHobbys.
We’re a little family owned and run hobby shop in Mareeba
in Far North Queensland, Australia.
This unique business is run by myself and my wife Sharon.
We’ve been selling model trains since 2008 and have been ‘playing’ with them for 40 years, so we really know our stuff!
We love to share our passion for model trains with other like-minded people.
For us, the hobby comes before the business and we’ll run model trains until our last breath!
More recently, I’ve been acquainted with the new world of
Digital Command Control (DCC) and thoroughly enjoying!
Our passion and business goal, is to provide the best service we can to all our valued customers, both on-line and through the shop.
Our on-line buyers are our bread and butter, but our boutique store is well worth a visit.
There’s so much to see and we’re always super happy to answer any questions.
Not being in the retail hub of Mareeba helps keep the price down on our stock.
Although we don’t have the buying power of some larger competitors,
we will out do in service and expertise.
Hope to train-talk with you soon!
Mark has been modeling trains for over 40 years and has a wealth of experience in the field. We love model trains and our strong passion comes first! We love to share our knowledge and it’s for that reason, we go out of our way to make EVERY buyer happy. Great passion equals GREAT business!
Being a small operation, we can and DO, value and appreciate every customer.
We always try to stock latest model Trains along with our great range of classic model train ‘must-haves’. If you’re looking for something in particular, We'll do our best to get it in. Occasionally, we have sale items across our selling platforms, but they may be
one- off items. If you miss out on a sale item, we’ll refund as soon as possible.
Check out the website or give us a call at the Hobby Shop for information on any product.
We’re always happy to talk trains!

08:00 am – 11:30 am
We are generally open Monday to Friday from 7am to 12 pm But please ring us on 0740922527 before coming to book an appointment time.
We do a one on one service for all of our customers as we find this to be much better for our customers as it gives them the time to ask questions and get the specialised help they require. And due to my health I can't always be open.
