About Us

Kelly’s Kaboose and the Kamloops Antique Mall were started in 1997 by Brian and Wendy Kelly. Brian has been a train lover and toy train collector since his days of growing up in Belfast, N. Ireland, and Wendy a lover of antiques and collectibles since her youth in North Vancouver, B.C.

When they moved to Kamloops in 1995 there was no train store, so they started one by renting a small room at the back of a railway theme coffee shop, hence the ‘Kaboose’ name as they were at the rear. Within two years they had opened up their own shop and have not looked back. Today the train store carries mainly Canadian road name model trains in all scales as well as old toy trains, railway books, DVD’s, railway antiques, Thomas toys, railway art, and so much more. It is definitely the premier train store in the BC interior. And remember, if its not in stock we’ll order it for you. If you are a member of a model railway club or rail fan organization be sure to mention it, Kelly’s Kaboose supports all model railway and railfan organizations by giving members a 10% discount on all purchases.

Shipping is offered world wide, and over the years railway items have been sent to Britain, Europe, Australia, and all across North America. For Canadian mail orders shipping is free on orders over $200, outside Canada shipping is at cost.

Whats new this week

  .Updated June 23, 2017.  WE ARE OPEN FOR BUSINESS!!!  Check out the new GMD-1's from Rapido, sergeant stripe version at last.  Hours are 10:00 AM till 5:00 PM, closed Sunday and Monday. The photo shows how Wendy and I worked like you know what to transform our old building into a pretty accurate replica of the original Savona CPR station which was right across the street from us. Its gone today, but the main line is still about 50 yards in front of us. Talk about a huge outdoor railway display, and with smoke and sound too!  And behind us across the lake is another one that some folks call the CN, but we refer to it as our other layout. On another note we will be rebuilding our web site later this year, but in the meantime we're going to start for square one listing newly arrived items as of now just into the store, so check it out..
