About Train Party

How it All Started...

It all started with a few phone calls from our site visitors inquiring about children's train-themed birthday party items. It was 1995 and we had a very limited catalog of train merchandise such as videos, calendars and t-shirts for sale. No kids train-themed party supplies, gifts, or toys. We could not find any good online resources dedicated to just train party items. All that we could find was Thomas and Friends party favors and a few miscellaneous train toys scattered throughout many online retailers. That sparked the idea of creating a centralized online specialty shop just for train-themed party supplies, toys, gifts and novelties.

On February 07, 2003, TrainWeb, LLC purchased the new domain specifically for launching our new kids' train-themed birthday party related products. We decided to leave as a railroad information portal and moved the old train merchandise to this newly acquired website. Our business has expanded quite a lot since 2003 as we have grown from a small website offering only a few train items to becoming the main online retailer for Train Party Supplies, Thomas the Tank Engine items, Railroad Hats and Whistles with other unique gifts and novelties. Today, we offer over 600 train-themed party products under one roof.

Brick-and-Mortar to Manufacturing...

On August 1, 2005, we opened our first retail store in Fullerton, CA to better serve the local community living in southern California. Our need for more space for inventory had grown beyond our new larger facility in less than a year. We could already see that our need for more and more inventory space was going to continue growing for the next few years. At the same time, we realized that we could save a lot on shipping costs and provide exceptional speed of delivery if we were more centrally located in the nation. Thus began a search for a new larger facility centrally located in the U.S. that would handle our growth needs for the next several years.

On August 21, 2006, through direction from the Lord, moved to the city of La Plata in northeast Missouri. The company purchased land and two warehouse buildings giving us over 15,000 sq. feet of work space. Shortly after the move, made another major growth change. we became a manufacturer for three train-themed party supply lines: Little Chug, Whistle Stop and Officially licensed Amtrak Train. The decision to manufacture our own train-themed party line allowed us to offer products throughout the year without any interruption.
