ABOUT PIZZA & PASTA EXPRESS-LGB TRAIN SHOP

 

The Pizza & Pasta Express and Train Shop has been one of Southern Illinois' favorite tourist attractions for over 21 years. Our business started offering food in 1987. Within a year trains were added overhead and down the walls as a marketing tool to expand our customer base. The trains chosen were LGB because of their quality craftsmanship and their reputation for long term operation. Our trains run six to eight hours a day, six days a week. They are given a rest on major holidays.

As soon as we began running LGB trains many customers requested information on how they could purchase the trains for their homes and businesses. At that time we decided to sell the trains instead of sending our customers elsewhere. In 1988 we purchased a second building adjacent to our restaurant. We chiseled through three layers of bricks to interconnect the buildings with the second building becoming our retail train store. The train shop also houses our 12' by 26' operating display. Since that time we have experienced yearly growth.

We will provide quality products and friendly service each time you do business with us. We specialize in LGB, Lehmann, Pola, Piko, USA, Arist-Craft, Lionel and Learning Curve Thomas the Train Products and CARRERA Slot Cars and Sets. Please feel free to contact us with any railroading needs you have. If you are ever traveling on Interstate 57 then please stop by for a good meal and enjoy our trains in full operation. We even have an engine with 2 cars that was fabricated out of wood so that our patrons can enjoy their meal while "riding" on a train.

On January 2, 2008 the restaurant was transferred to Frank Charles. This was done so I can spend more time with the hobby side of the business. Both businesses will remain in their same location in interconnected buildings and a close relationship will be maintained between both businesses. Thank you for your patience during this period of transition.
