Services offered by this Supplier:
Decoder Fitting Services, Painting & Weathering, RTR Repairs and Resprays
Brass model services; Custom Painting, DCC Installation, Gearboxes, Motors and Mechanical, Brass Repairs and Restorations; general model locomotive servicing facilities. We only accept Scale models made of brass between HO Standard Gauge (not narrow gauge) and O scale. We do not accept diecast, plastic, tinplate or "toy" trains.
A typical job is full service; we ensure that the model runs the best it possibly can, mechanically. We custom paint the model to your specifications. Where possible or applicable, our paint jobs include real glass in cabs and headlamps, custom turned headlamp reflectors, hand brushed details, and waterslide decals applied to not be visible as a film. Our Standard DCC Sound Installation Fee includes; all parts (Tsunami 2 or WOW Sound only) for a typical installation, to include a Stay Alive Circuit, up to 4 Lamp functions that have pre cored castings, break away plugs between engine and tender and basic programming to include Auto Exhaust. We typically use incandescent lamps but can install LEDs in most diesels and a FEW (congruent) steam models for an additional fee. Additional work beyond these enumerated inclusions may require additional charges.
We are masters at soldering brass parts and repair of damaged brass models. We are capable of generating custom parts and masters for lost wax but these are very expensive and not typical of our standard services.
All work is charged at an hourly rate except Weathering a model and Standard DCC installation.
We have a backlog for major (Scheduled) jobs of about 1.5 years but can take minor jobs as fill-in. (Minor jobs are considered less than 5 hours).
If you are looking for economical services we will honestly advise you that we are not the service you are looking for. We are interested in discerning modelers who understand the value of custom work, who understand that "custom" means the job is subject to specific and individual desires of the client. Custom work is not a consumable goods, it is an investment in individual interest. Thank you for your inquiries.
