DCC Sound Installations
 DCC SOUND INSTALLATIONS
This consist of the installation of a DCC sound decoder into a locomotive which involves the location and install of the Decoder and the Speaker or Speakers. As part od this process the locomotive is serviced and tested and the decoders has the sounds loaded and customised to the locomotive. The prices are basic quotations which can be less depending on the loco and not more. The prices only cover the Labour cost and do not include the decoder cost. The decoder can be provided by you or purchased from us. We use ESU loksound decoders which range from:

$140 - for Loksound Select decoders
$165 - for Loksound V4 decoders Blank 
$190 - for Loksound V4 decoders With Loaded Sounds (UK sounds)
$140 - for Tsunami 2 Sound Decoders
$15   - for Speakers

BASIC SOUND INSTALLATION - $50
​A Basic Installation will involve the installation of a decoder into a DCC ready locomotive which means not much wiring is involved. As part of the the loco will have any unecessary capacitors and resistors removed as they can affect the DCC running. The loco will also be run in and tested fully.

SOUND & DCC CONVERSION - $65-85 
This is for locos that are not DCC ready and will need to have a decoder hardwired into it and may possibly need to have the chassis modified in order to fit the decoder.   

BRASS LOCOMOTIVE SOUND CONVERSION - $80-100
Brass locomotives are kept in a separate catagory due to the care needed in ensuring that the chassis's are kept insuated to prevent shorting and damaging the decoder. Some locomotives are easier than others due to how they are assembled. 
 NOTICE
Please note that there is a combined discount for multiple items of work done on one locomotive and also when working on multiple locomotives at one time. Ask for a quote to see what the full price would be.
