Open For Business: Bussinger Trains Uses Pandemic To Take On New Direction

AMBLER, Pa. (CBS) -- In this week's Open For Business feature, Eyewitness News travels to a shop in Ambler, where the owners used the pandemic as an opportunity to take their business in a new direction.

All aboard, for you've got something that's been chugging along in Ambler for 30 years that's one-of-a-kind in a one-of-a-kind-location. It's a train shop and a toy shop on top of a working track inside the old Ambler train station. It's unique and it's all yours. It's Bussinger Trains.

It was started in 1992 by the late Charles B. Bussinger, a retired electrician and lifetime train enthusiast, and Stephanie Dodson's dad and Nicholas Dodson's grandfather.

During COVID-19, when the online store went up but walk-in traffic was down, Stephanie Dodson had to put this train on a new track so she pulled her dad's tradition into a new direction by shifting gears from collectors to children.

Watch the video above for more on Bussinger's Trains and Toys.
