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.
