Amazing customer service

For our latest purchase, the staff at IronHorse Hobbies went above and beyond, including a handwritten note from Santa as requested without any trouble at all. It truly made the delivery so special for our boys. Thank you team! When we have shopped in store, the team are very pragmatic when considering the age of children and suitable models - never trying to sell us something unsuitable even though it would have been better for their sales figures. Can't recommend these guys enough!
