H&R Trains owners Alice and Don Morris are pictured at the right in our Marklin department. They would love to meet you here in our Pinellas Park, FL store. H&R had a very humble beginning in a corner of the McCrorys five and dime in Gateway Mall in North East St. Petersburg. Alice sold all her stock so quickly that the store manager loaned her $1000.00 on his credit card so she could buy more stock.

|H&R Trains is located on the central west coast of Florida in the Tampa-St. Petersburg area. It sits on an acre of land at the corner of U.S. Highway 19 North and Haines Road in Pinellas Park, Florida.
H&R Trains is more of a model railroad complex than just a store. It consists of an outdoor garden railroad and several buildings with over 10,000 sq. feet of floor space dedicated entirely to trains. We offer a full range of services that most stores can only dream about, and we carry most major brands in all gauges.
Directly behind our sales counter there is a large picture window which overlooks our Chester Holley research library and learning center. The library has a DVD's and video tapes on both prototype and model railroad subjects. It includes research books and magazines from 1939 to the present. The library is also equipped with a computer design station where you can design your model railroad with computer software such as "Right Track", and "RR Track."
The learning center is a place where classes are held on a wide range of model railroad subjects. It is also used for club meetings, birthday parties, the Little Engineers Club, or as a place to just relax with a book from the library.
We service what we sell, and our full time service personnel can be seen in our Engine and Car Shops through the large window at the east end of the retail store. The shop is equipped with the latest state of the art equipment to handle almost any type of installation or repair. We are an authorized service center for Lionel, LGB, and Marklin, and we service most all major brands.
Our customers come from all over the world, and we realize that not everyone can get to our store during our regular store hours. We offer two special services just for those customers. First is our H&R Personal Shopper. If you can't get to the store for any reason we will do your shopping for you. The second special service is our H&R VIP Shopper. If you can't get to the store during the hours we are normally open we will open for you, 24 hours a day.
We also offer a Gift Registry for Special Occasions, Holidays, Birthdays, Weddings, Awards, Retirement Gifts. Or what ever the occasion might be.
The store has several operating layouts including a digital "HO" and "O"gauge two large scale or "G" Gauge layouts an "N" Gauge layout and an outside garden railroad with over 535 feet of track. The outdoor railroad operates every Saturday and Sunday, year round, from 11AM to 4PM, rain or shine. We encourage our customers to get hands on experience with the garden railroad, and even issue an Engineers Card to any youngsters who help run the railroad.
The outdoor railroad has become a proving ground for many of the large scale products we sell in the store. Many manufacturers have sent us items to test on our layout, and some have made improvements to their products as a result of our findings.
