Trains upstairs, toys down jam-pack this suburban institution of serious fun and games.. In Short Back in 1909, Nicholas Smith became Center City's favorite spot for mini choo-choos and the bustling electric tiny towns that surround them. About 70 years later, the business relocated to a busy sidewalk-less street's edge in suburban Broomall. Train buffs follow the regional rail signs up the stairs to a cardboard-boxed haven for all things Lionel, Flyer, K-Line and Williams. Regular toy folk step straight into a room stocked floor-to-ceiling with classic hobbies, kitschy plastic objects and collectible Beanie Babies.
