Exhibition Diary


We will be attending the following exhibitions:

We will have our sound equipped locomotives for those wishing to hear them operating on the new layout "The Yard" - A fictional but prototypical NSW country layout in HO scale that represents a through branch line with associated sidings for typical rural yard activities. Running locos will be 42, 421, 43, 44, 45, 81 class locos along with 47, 48, 49 class locos and shunting locos 41, 73 and the fantastic sounding X200. Plus passenger 620/720 railcars, CPH/CTH Rail Motor and NSW Xplorer all with our Custom Sound Projects.

So look for our signs and come a have a chat about DCC with Sound for your locos.  


What's New in Sound

We are busy working away at updating our Custom Sound Projects to include new sounds and features to make your sound equipped locomotives operate and sound better than before and more prototypical. What's all the fuss...well have a read about here

This is taking some time and we are gradually updating our installation pages on our website to include all the new information.  

Welcome to DCC Solutions

The place to come for DCC installations, modifications, sales and repairs.

We specialise in installing DCC into your prized collection of locomotives.

From basic DCC motor control through to sound and lighting modifications we can customise your installation to suit your needs and budget.

 

We recognise that model railway enthusiast like their locomotives to operate and sound as close to the real thing, so we are constantly looking at ways to achieve these requirements.

 

Specialising in lighting control we have improved the factory installed lighting on many new release locomotives as well as some older models.

Where possible separating the lighting for more prototypical control. On some models we have achieved up to 12 individual lighting functions for total prototypical light control.

 

Other areas important to the serious modeller are sound and motor control.

In some locomotives we can provide sounds that are authentic while in others we will customise the sounds to try achieve the closest possible sound for our Australian locos that is available with current resources.

 

We have tweaked the motor control on certain decoders to provide super slow speeds perfect for those who like their locos to move off slowly or like to operate shunting.

 

And most importantly, we provide an honest, reliable and quality customer service with advice and recommendations regarding your DCC installation.


Have a look around the website and see what we can do with your locomotives. We don't just work on Australian Locomotives or the locomotives displayed on our installation page but any locomotive including  Brass, White Metal, Ready to Run, American, British, European,

and Scales N - HO - O, HOn3


So if you have converted your layout to DCC and are discovering the potential possibilities DCC has to offer and want DCC installed in your locomotives, even that box of bad runners you have in storage, do not hesitate to contact us if you have an enquiry or question regarding DCC.

You will be surprised with some of the results we have achieved.
