Model Toad & Snail?
This week Mrs Brinkster alerted me to the fact that Model Road & Rail had been closed during the week and that she'd seen people carrying out large quantities of stuff to cars outside when she'd been passing. Today I snapped the picture above of the shop closed in the middle of a Saturday afternoon, so it would appear that it's closed or closing, although there's no sign in the window.
Being graced with three small Brinksters I have been in there many times and also bought stuff there too but they seem to have moved most of their transactions onto ebay here and there's certainly somebody still posting auctions up there. I hope they don't close as they've been in business for 34 years and it'd be a shame for Worcester Park to lose a business that's been around that long....... but I guess times do change.
