The company/store address is M.B. Klein, Inc. 243A Cockeysville Rd. Cockeysville, MD 21030 USA. There’s only one registered retail store and that’s third to the first and the 2nd location which was formerly located in Baltimore. The company actually expanded their market online instead of investing stores nation and worldwide. It’s actually much convenient that way for the store.

Building and managing multiple stores across different states and countries can be a handful. Allowing your store to be showcased through online marketing allows more accessibility at a lower and manageable cost. You’d only have to manage and process orders coming to the site to be delivered.

Additionally, it would be comfortable for enthusiast and hobbyist to just check the site and see if the material, tool or accessories they need is available in the store rather than crossing cities just to find out that there’s no product on stock.

The store also has a phone available for customer’s reach. One can easily ask for questions and inquiries through 1.888.872.4675. They really entertain customers and try to find the best possible solution to the problems they have or options for the product they need.


Model Train Stuff is known and owned by MB Klein, Inc. It is actually a locksmith shop and a hardware store that was founded in the early months of the year 1913. For more than 50 years it has stayed that way. However, things began to change. There was a big expansion over Baltimore where the highway was expanded and rebuilt as a solution to growing traffic congestion. The construction included the store’s original location where they were forced to relocate at a new location to the south of the original but is now located in Baltimore City, USA in the summer months of the year 2007.

The MB Klein, Inc. was founded by Morris Benjamin Klein. Later through the years, Morris’s son, Ted Klein, joined the management of the store doing work side by side with his father and made so many accomplishments. Through him, the store was slowly converted into a train model shop. The idea came to mind where the store was reselling train stuff from Kramer Brothers which is a hobby distributor and Ted would resell them back in their store. To save him the trouble from a huge profit cut, he realizes he could earn much more with reselling the products directly and become a distributor himself.

Ted tried to convince Morris and later on, the locksmith shop was later converted into a model train store. It was a perfect timing as Lionel trains were the best and ideal toy every kid during that time ever dreamed of. The trains were also a perfect representation of Christmas were it was set as one of the greatest gifts during the holiday a kid could have.

It was about the year 1970’s that the transition occurred and was successful and the sales were as good as ever. That time, HO-scale was also getting some popularity and has been marketed from different parts of the country with high remarks and reviews. That said, it allowed people with small dorms, houses or apartments to have a model train of their own as HO-scale is one of the early indoor train models at a considerable size. It means well for the business to expand through the new scale model.

The store became popular in the city and later made a name in the country. Today, it is still considered as one of the few train model headquarters by hobbyist, enthusiast, and professionals both young and old.
