In 1984, Mark Sommerfeld decided to build a business around his passion for model railroading and Sommerfeld’s Trains and Hobbies was born. In 1996, Sommerfeld’s moved to their current location in Butler, Wisconsin.
Now run by the second generation, Sommerfeld’s is still a family owned and operated business. Their 2400 square foot super store is filled with locomotives, rolling stock, buildings, scenery and everything else needed to build a world-class layout.
In addition to being the largest Lionel dealer in Wisconsin, Sommerfelds is also an authorized Lionel and MTH Service Center. Their trained staff is also available to assist with repairs of other products, regardless of their manufacturer. Feel free to contact their helpful staff with any of your repair questions.
