Repairs, Service and DCC Chip Fitting

Repairs, Service and DCC Chip Fitting

We offer a locomotive repair service within the shop.

This could be just a general service, or replacing parts that are broken/worn.

We also fit DCC decoders to OO gauge and (space permitting) N gauge locomotives.

A guide to repair costs are listed below but start at £10.00.

We do prefer that you bring your locomotives into the shop instead of posting them unless they are well packaged and at your risk.

Return postage (at cost) will be added to all charges quoted.

Turn around is usually a week from receipt but can take longer if spares are required, you would be notified of this.

All we ask is you provide as much information as possible about the fault and include the service sheet if you have it.

You can contact us direct on our telephone number, email or pop into the shop.
