Where are the best stores in NC where you can go, run some model trains and purchase the one’s you like? There are so many in the state.

Dry Bridge Station is in Mount Airy, NC. Mount Airy (Mayberry) itself is a pretty special place. For me, add an awesome train store with a cool layout where kids can watch and run some trains and you’ve got a 2nd home! Located right on Main Street in the middle of Downtown Mount Airy, Dry Bridge Station features all scales…O, N, HO, Z and many others. They also carry all the Thomas gear.

Owner, Mike King tells a good story on their website

Trains flowed in my blood early.  Etched in my memory is Daddy’s return from the Pacific in July, 1945.  Perched on a wp5a405a79_0fbaggage cart, I watched the train hiss to a stop.  After much confusion, I was snatched up and hugged by a man in uniform, then a stranger.  In December, my older brother got a train set.  As Daddy and I got acquainted that spring, he would take me to Pomona yard in Greensboro, North Carolina to watch the switching operations while he listened to the baseball game on the radio.  In September 1995, I opened Dry Bridge Station, a model train store.  The seed planted fifty years earlier began to sprout.
