DCC Status of railway models

The DCC status of all our models is displayed in the product listing.

Some categories such as garden railways are excluded because those models do not use DCC control.

DCC Ready

A DCC Ready model is one that is pre-wired for the installation of a Digital Command Control (DCC) system

This means that it is ready to be operated with a DCC controller, which gives you more accurate and realistic control over your locomotive's speed, direction, and sound.

DCC Fitted

DCC fitted models have been specifically designed to be used with a Digital Command Control (DCC) system. This gives you more accurate and realistic control over speed, direction, and Lighting

DCC Sound Fitted

DCC sound fitted models have been specifically designed to include sound effects, giving you an even more realistic experience.

If you're looking to fit a dcc ready or older model with sound effects, then please contact us for a quote

Special editions from Manufacturers

A lot of manufacturers have started producing short production runs, and model shops have to pre-order at least 12 months before they are released.

If you are looking forward to purcasing a particular model please let us know as soon as possible.

Customers can be disapointed when stocks run out

Customer pre-orders

Where a manufacturer has announced a new model and we have been allocated a small number to sell, the website will allow you to pre-order in advance.

We ask for a deposit of around 10% to secure your model

Manufacturers tend to announce new releases up to 12 months in advance, so you could have a very long wait but at least your chosen model will be secured for you.

If the manufacturers release date is delayed then you can ask for your deposit to be returned, but that means you are no longer assured of getting the model
