"DCC fitting, servicing and repairs from a fellow railway modeller"

DCC Fitting

From a simple drop-in of a chip through to installation of a sound chip of your choice.  Triang, Hornby, Bachmann, Fia Trains, loco drive, tender drive, lighting, smoke.

Bachmann split chassis installation a speciality. “Stay Alive” capacitors can be fitted to most decoders to improve slow running of locos with limited wheel pickups or when running over insulfrog points.

Servicing and Repairs

I will always do my level best to get your old friends running again. A basic service costs £15.00 plus the cost of any parts used and postage & packing. Repairs are quoted on a case by case basis, it all depends on the problem, the availability of parts and the amount of time involved.

Motors (X04, X03)

You know your loco deserves it! – Only £21.00 inclusive of parts and postage.

A fully refurbished X.04 (or X.03) motor for your classic Triang/Hornby loco!. You can’t buy new – these motors offer a cost effective solution!.

Simply send in your broken motor, complete with the payment and I will post out a fully working replacement as soon as possible.
