Welcome to Rail & Sprue Hobbies in Jacksonville, AR. We specialize in scale hobbies, including model trains in N, HO, and O scales (plus narrow gauge), plastic models, HO slot cars, paints, tools, scratch building supplies, and much more.
We were founded in August of 2000 with the objective of providing the model builder and model railroader with the finest products available. If we don't have it, we'll do our best to find it! Our resources include most all of the major hobby distributors and manufacturers, and we receive new products and restocks every week. Special orders aren’t a problem.
Give us a call today!
We’re home to the fabulous “Moon Southern Line” HO/HOn3 model railroad. This historic layout was born in October of 1965, and built by the late NMRA Master Modeler Paul Moon. The layout was featured in the March 1987 issue of “Model Railroader” magazine, and hosts a significant number of Paul’s kit-built, kit-bashed, and scratch-built structures. Relocation of the layout to the store was accomplished in February of 2016 and it has now been restored to full operation.
We’re also home to the Tuscarora Lumber Company, an informal group that meets on Saturday mornings to share in the hobby of model railroading. Our 1920's-era narrow gauge showcase layout is on display and will soon be back in operation for your viewing pleasure. We also construct and maintain a number of both N and HO scale modules that can be transported and set up at a train show.
