I have received my Kato GS4 loco from you and I am absolutely delighted with it. The paintwork is superb and the sounds and running quality are fantastic.

Many thanks for a job well done.I would have no hesitation in recommending your work to others.


... Ken in Ireland


I just went to the train room and did a test run... It surpasses my wildest expectations. The motion (slow and smooth as you want)... the sound... the look... the lights, it is ALL THERE!  You do great work. 


PS: and my wife thinks I am going to do yard work and mow the lawn tomorrow... yea, right.

I picked up the GP-15 yesterday and it looks, and runs beautifully, thank you for all your great work.  All the lights are working just fine. It is pretty spectacular with all of them on.


... Phil in Indiana

Thank you, sir, for your diligent efforts on this project, and for your marvelous communication which kept me fully updated. 


The mallet arrived this afternoon, and it was a delight to run it for awhile.  Thanks for a good job and lots of patience! 
I particularly liked the printout of the CV values.

Just wanted to ... let you know that I'm more then pleased with all three locos.

... Jack in California


I will highly recommend your services and honesty.

  I received the loco's today and am very pleased.  When it runs I think it sounds great.

  The F7B I ran in a 3 loco consist & am very happy with the results. I think your right about the volume.  Just a bit to loud. 

  Thanks for the photos with shell & tender off.  You really did a nice clean job.

...Chris in The Phillipines
The sound is fantastic.  Thanks again.
... Gary in New Jersey
I just came from a session of running my Kato E-8.  I must tell you that this installation is without a doubt the most fun I have had with any decoder.  That 'start-up' sequence purely delights me, as well as the range of sound available.  Did this come on the decoder, or is it some of your creative skills being shown?  Whatever, I just have to tell you that this is fun!!!!!!!!
... James in Arkansas

Just ran my newest boxcar and it sounds great!  I can hear it all over my layout from one position and that's about thirty feet away in some spots.


... Bob in Massachussettes

Wow, the sound car is fantastic!  You did a great job on this.  The sound is very clear and loud, it runs great and it's a perfect addition to my locomotive.  I'm extremely happy with your work.

... Ed in California
