About Us!

The Smoke Stack Hobby Shop in Lancaster, Ohio has over 45 years in the business of providing hobbyists with the right tools for their particular hobby. And we have customers (and employees) who’ve been with us since the beginning. We are family-owned and operated and have been since the beginning in 1977.

We are the largest store in Lancaster and the surrounding area dedicated solely to hobbyists. Our storefronts boast a large variety of new releases, plus hard-to-find out of production items.



We are hitting the road in 2023 to bring items from the fabulous Brehm Model Train Collection to the public. Below is a listing of where you can find us. We will be adding more events soon so check back often!
