Vist West Yorkshire’s Model Railway and Hobby Centre…Going Loco

Based in Wakefield West Yorkshire Going Loco is a family run railway models and hobby centre, where you’ll always find a warm friendly welcome.

Going Loco is situated just 100 yds off the A61 Leeds to Wakefield road and only 2 miles from junction 41 M1, and within walking distance from Outwood railway station. With a large free car park feel free to browse at your own leisure, relax and have a cup of tea if you so wish. With our large running layout showcasing how great this modelling hobby can be, its a great day out for any enthusiast.

We work closely with our suppliers, Hornby, Bachmann, Graham Farish, Peco, Metcalfe, Woodland Scenic, Gaugemaster, and more. This allows us to ensure high quality to all our products. A feat that we carry over to our quality pre-owed selection.

Our pre owned section is mostly made up from stock we have bought from collectors nationwide, we are always on the lookout for those special rare items which we then sell right here!
