DCC Decoder Installation Service

Do you have a locomotive or rolling stock you would like to add sound to? Does your recent DIY project have you ready to give up? If this is the case, let me help you out by offering my services and expertise in sound decoder installation. I have done several installs in both Steam and Diesel Locomotives plus rolling stock such as boxcars, stock cars, mechanical reefers, etc. to add to the realism of any layout. I offer these types of installs in HO scale and larger depending on the model. I am also a factory trained installer by Soundtraxx, 2017. My installs can be as basic as giving a DC locomotive a DCC decoder and speaker and giving it the bell and whistle/horn it would use, or as advanced as adding extra lighting to make that model operate as prototypical as possible. Feel free to contact me so we can discuss what you want in your models to enhance your model railroad experience.
