Our wide choice of DCC decoders is complemented by our stocks of UK locomotives to put them in. We have locos from Bachmann, Dapol, Graham Farish, Heljan and Hornby in gauges from N to O. The loco section is well worth a visit with a good choice at competetive prices and a variety of rolling stock too.
Having found your DCC System and chosen locos to control you will need some equipment to install them. We have tools, connectors, cables and consumables to meet most needs.
We have good stocks of PECO track and accessories plus a wide range of Woodland Scenics, Metcalfe Kits, Evergreen styrene mouldings and card, Metals, Precision Paints, Adhesives and a wide variety of other materials.
Digitrains has long been associated with Zimo sound decoders and the most extensive range available of Paul Chetter's sound projects. For Loksound V4 we are able to supply these with any of our Tony Molyneux sound projects plus any of the Loksound files from their library too. But now......
Exciting announcement. Digitrains has continued make friends with several other clever people over the years who create sound projects and we are now able to provide some of these as paid for coded downloads for Loksound V4 decoders. More details to follow as the range expands.
Please telephone for details or email for information sheets to peruse the soundfile information. If you have an existing Loksound decoder we'd need the serial number of it or we can supply new decoders with these files on for the same extra coded download charge.
New sounds from "ENGINEMAN".
Introducing an all new range of Loksound sound projects form Engineman. These original, unique projects owing nothing to anything that has gone before. They are all new authentic loco recordings and project work undertaken by Engineman who actually works with Steam and Diesel locos and knows how they work intimately to create super accurate profiles for your Loksound fitted models. Engineman always strives to go that extra mile to ensure that model will be able to replicate the behaviour of the real thing, so you know you’re guaranteed to get the most accurate and realistic driving experience. These projects, for the first time from Digitrains, will incur a £12.00 premium on top of our standard Loksound decoder price. But with our V4 Standard and Micro decoders at only £87.00 for gauges up to OO and even some smaller O gauge models then the price will still be only £99.00 with Engineman’s sounds included so still much less than many of our competitors.
Also JGMRTRC Class 14 sound from well known DCC exponent John Gay, also available as a coded project.
After the advantages that DCC gives you in fine control, freedom of movement and ease of installation the greatest boost to the pleasure of railway modelling has been the addition of sound. The US and European modeller has been well served for some time but it is only during the last few years that genuine sound for the UK market has been more widely available. For the steam fan the use of generic 'best fit' sound is often the only option but more and more specific soundfiles are continually being created. The modern image scene is increasingly well served with authentic projects.
Digitrains are very lucky to have a dedicated group of sound enthusiasts recording and processing genuine locomotive sound for us. With their help our own, growing, choice of quality sound schemes for ZIMO and Loksound decoders are earning great acclaim. We also stock the full range from the ESU catalogue produced by South West Digital.
Please take a look at our DS (Loksound) and ZS (Zimo) soundfiles in the DigitrainSound range.
