DCC Non-Sound Conversions 7mm
Larger locos (typically tender engines and large diesels)
Due to higher current consumption large engines need a high capacity decoder to provide this.
Our decoder of choice is the ESU Lokpilot XL decoder which we can supply and install for £110. This has built in "Stay-Alive" which helps your loco keep moving over dirty track.
Smaller locos (typically tank engines and shunters)
For smaller locos where current consumption is under 1 amp (we can check this but have not previously found any problems) we recommend an ESU Lokpilot v4 decoder, which we can supply and install for £75.
If you would like "Stay-Alive" for improved running over dirty track we can attach a stay-alive unit for £15 (if done at the same time as fitting the decoder).
If you want yellow or red oil lamps on your steam locos we can fit these. Please see the lights page for details.
We can also fit smoke units into steam locos – including a double installation for double-chimneyed locos. Please see the smoke page for details.
Please note prices don't include return postage. You can pick up or drop off your loco if you prefer (we are in North Leeds - please contact us first).
