DCC Decoder Installations

Effective 9/26/16.

Thanks you for your interest in SBS4DCC Custom Services.

As SBS4DCC continues to grow, I find the hard tangible limits of my time in new ways every day.  I ain't twenty five anymore either, right...

I receive many inquiries for service and support and feel this is a critical part of the value we add to your DCC experience.

In order to expand and improve on this mission, I have partnered with three installation contractors, Nick LeGroux, Steven Fields and Jerry Rowley to provide value-added decoder installation services.

Nick has been helping for many years now and is proficient in most scales.

Steve has been doing installs for more years than I and is proficient in most scales as well as specializing in brass conversions.

Jerry is a veteran installer who is quite proficient in our beloved N Scale models but is happy to anything Z to G.

It is my pleasure to welcome Nick, Steve and Jerry to the SBS4DCC family and thank them for their help with this task.


All other aspects of my operation remain the same.


I am still quoting and producing R-T-R Sound Cars and great SBS4DCC products like my Varnish Lighting Kits.

*****  NOTICE  *****


Thanks you for your interest in SBS4DCC Custom Services.

I am not quoting new decoder installation work at this time.

My backlog has reached a point where I cannot complete new work in a reasonable period of time.  Additionally, I have committed to large project that will consume any reaming hours for an extended period.

As such, I am not able to offer a realistic completion date for any new work.  It is in both of our best interest that I NO QUOTE new installation projects because of this situation.

 

I invite you to please inquire with Streamlined Backshop again in the future. I hope that I will be able to quote new work again soon.

Conversion List
Decoder Installation Details

 

Let's discuss your project today!


The photos and videos at the bottom of the page are just a few examples of the performance and operational possibilities available for your locomotive fleet.

 

I can install basic motor and light control, special lighting, sound, smoke generators, and chuff cams.

 

Special lighting options like ditch lights, marker lights and number boards, rotary beacons and strobe lights, MARS and Gyra-lights, cab and cabin lighting, as well as firebox and stove flicker lighting can be installed using LED's or Incandescent bulbs.


I can do complex to simple and any level in between. Email me at quotes@sbs4dcc.com to make plans for your unit today.  Be sure to indicate the scale of the unit as this affects many of the details of the installation.


Basic Decoder Installations include:

  • Engine testing and inspection
  • Locomotive disassembly *
  • MINOR frame modifications as required for proper Decoder fit
  • Testing and isolation of motor from frame as required **
  • Decoder installation
  • Kapton Tape, Shrink Tube, and/or Electrical Tape as required to protect Decoder and connections
  • Double-sided tape and/or other supplies as required to secure the decoder
  • Running gear lubrication
  • Locomotive reassembly
  • Front and Rear Headlight wired to decoder ***
  • Decoder tested and programmed to requested address
  • Basic programming provided at no extra charge - Advanced programming available for an additional fee ****
  • Machining of frame provided at no extra charge in most cases *****
  • Return packaging and shipping will be charged on final invoice

 

NOTES:

 

Please provide details and/or request a quote in advance if you think you might need one of the following options.

 

* - Engines will be tested and inspected upon receipt. I do not recommend installation of a decoder in a dirty or defective mechanism as it will not improve the performance of the unit. Additionally, it will make the installation more difficult. I will provide a summary of defects found and an estimate of time and materials required for repair. I will not pursue the installation on a dirty or defective engine without prior written authorization from the buyer. Locomotive maintenance and repair services are available for an additional fee.

 

** - In many instances it is necessary to permanently modify the engine in order to prepare it for use with DCC. All effort will be made to minimize the size and scope of these modifications.

 

*** - LED Units only. Incandescent and LED installation options are available for an additional fee. Additional Function Installation options are available for an additional fee.

 

**** - Additional programming of decoder features are available for an additional fee.

 

***** - Custom machining of your frame may be required for some installations and is generally provided at no charge. An additional fee may be charged if the scope work requires significant modification.
