Catoctin Mountain Trains & Hobbies
About Us
Paul and Marcia

We're the owners of Catoctin Mountain Trains and Hobbies.   After a year of preparation, help from our friends & our children - Wendy & Chip - we opened CM Trains on September 1, 1990.   Since opening, we take pride in keeping the best selection of new and old trains available to collectors and hobbyists like you.

Our love of trains started with Paul when he received his first train set on Christmas Eve when he was 6 months old.   It became a tradition in his family to set up the Lionel trains under the Christmas tree every year.  We continue to set up the Lionel Trains under the tree and have passed the tradition on to our children.  Paul has been an active post-war Lionel collector for over 40 years.  
As MTH Electric trains have become more popular, Paul's interests with MTH has also grown.   As he tried to acquire trains, Paul realized that the Northern Maryland area needed a shop like ours.

The one thing we like about our business is seeing the look on the customers' faces as they walk through the front door and see all the trains.  We are delighted to hear the stories and memories our customers share from their childhood. As customers return to our shop, we have the valuable opportunity of making many new friends.

Today's market brings many wonderful choices.  We hope to be able to guide you through your decisions by assisting you with selecting great trains.  We are helpful and spend time with you to understand your needs and budget. Our answers to your questions are always straightforward and honest.  We enjoy what we do and are here to serve our valued customers.

We look forward to seeing or hearing from you. Give CM Trains a try!
