About Us

Exchanging products, ideas, techniques and services for Model Railroad Enthusiasts of all ages!

The Train Exchange began as a storefront for Northern Albertans to shop for new and pre-owned model railroading products and services. Owner/Manager, Grant Reierson is part of the Edmonton railroading scene and has been buying and selling products as a way to develop his own layout. He has been servicing locomotives along with installing DCC decoders and lighting for friends and fellow enthusiasts. The store is a way for Grant to share his enjoyment of the hobby and to encourage others to come along for the ride!  

The name, 'The Train Exchange' represents the exchange of awesome pre-owned supplies but also a place to share ideas, techniques and services, making it a welcoming place for railroad enthusiasts of all ages and abilities. 

TTEX is the abbreviated version of 'The Train Exchange' which, as many model railroaders know, is symbolic of the reporting marks, or 'patch' stenciled on the side of railcars.  

TTEX offers a range of products and services:

  • Pre-owned HO-Scale and N-Scale products
  • Locomotive repair and sound/lighting installation services 
  • New products  - we are proud to offer major brands listed on our Brand page
  • Gifts and accessories for train enthusiasts
  • Workshops on modeling techniques 
  • Meeting space for clubs
  • A library of modeling literature 

Contact Grant to sell your pre-owned products and estates as he strives to supply unique, one-of-a-kind products for customers. 

Let him know if your model railroad club could use a meeting space!
