Hobby stores in Honolulu

Hi,

We are heading to Hawaii at the end of the month. Are there any Hobby stores in the Honolulu area that are worth a visit?
The main requirement: must stock N scale trains   :D

Looking forward to the Winter break (well winter for us in the southern hemisphere).

Cheers,
Colin.

Neil Erickson on MRH (http://model-railroad-hobbyist.com/user/22619) lives in HI.  My guess is if you email him he will have all the info you need.

It's funny, I just found out my brother in law lives right next to that!

Thanks.
Will check out the 2 foot gauge while we are there. And the family thought I wouldn't find anything train related on our holiday.  :)

Also this one:  http://www.kauaiplantationrailway.com/
The guy actually behind that 12"=1' project, Boone Morrison, noted architect, just passed in April.   Outstanding modeler.

but the big one - the LK&P -  is shut down.
