Roseville, California: Train Calamity-Themed Electronics Store (Closed)

More of a madcap, no-one-was-hurt railroad disaster as a photo-op olde-timey engine crashed through an outer wall. Inside the popular tech store: a full-size train replica on tracks.

Train Calamity-Themed Electronics Store

An electronics geek's paradise.....and for those who aren't, they carry all sorts of stuff you never knew you needed (zucchini noodle maker? Musical LED shower head? Yes, please). It is disturbingly organized, and the train theme is over-the-top and amusing. Refresh yourself at the 'western hotel cafe' inside and enjoy the live palm trees that line the train track tile floor throughout the store, while you discover more impulse goods to throw in the cart.
