About us

In the early 1990s, we, Rick and Peter Harlaar, turned our passion for model trains into an ambition; the ambition to run our own model train shop. After having been active for a number of years at model train fairs, in the mid-nineties we found a location in Badhoevedorp to realize our store, which is located next to Rick Harlaar's tax consultancy.

With a business philosophy that is focused on expertise, reliability, quality and good service, over the years the company has grown into one of the leading model train stores in the Netherlands.

We have never abandoned our roots and Harlaar Model Trains is still active on all major model train fairs in the Netherlands. In 2008 a second store was opened in Amsterdam on the Parnassusweg. A Märklin Store focused on Märklin products and Märklin affiliated brands. Despite the success of this formula, after 8 years we decided to concentrate all our activities in Badhoevedorp.

In addition to selling through our store and model train fairs, we are also active on Catawiki and since the beginning of 2019 we have our own webshop.

In our store you can find everything about model trains. We opt for a wide and deep product range, combined with expert advice and service.

With our location close to Schiphol airport Amsterdam, we also welcome many international clients in our shop.
