December 2021 Update

2021 has been both very quiet but also incredibly busy! Unfortunately I was once again unable to exhibit at any shows due to COVID-19, however with the amount of time we spent in lockdown the demand for decoders and electronic accessories has been very strong! With supply shortages stretching back into 2020 I was fortunate to receive some large shipments in early 2021 that kept me going through the dry patches!

With some extra time on my hands I was able to add quite a number of products to my website, with the total number of products well over 100!! I am now stocking a range of ESU sound decoders, and have significantly expanded my offerings of stay alive devices, speakers and my Zimo product range, including their new MS sound decoders.

2021 also saw the long awaited completion of the sound project for the Gopher Models N scale ready to run 42, S, B & GM locomotives, a demonstration video of this will be attached below. I have now fitted this project to what must be close to 50 locomotives, fortunately it has proven quite popular! I have also published a number of other Australian diesel sound projects to my website, which are available for loading to any Zimo sound decoder of choice.

September 2019 Update

We have recently returned from the 2019 Caulfield Model Railway Exhibition, where we formally released our sound project for the Victorian S and B, NSW 42 and CR GM locomotives. The project uses a CT Elektronik SL76 sound decoder, sugar cube speaker with custom enclosure and a 660uF keep alive capacitor setup.
