ELS Train Service Testomonials

"Dennis took my brass B36-7 and installed a Loksound decoder. Added additional pick ups to the trucks so that it has 8 wheel pick up. Finished the decals. Great job, runs great, sounds incredible. Highly recommend his work."

"I have Dennis do all my engine work. I've had him do all types of work. He re-motors, paints, weathers and installs sound in my older brass steam and I have him install decoders in my diesels too. I've been using his services for the last couple years. I bring a few engines a month to him. If I ever have problems, he fixes them no questions asked."

"Dennis is my GO TO guy when I can't figure out what's going on with my DCC stuff. I do all my own work, but when I get stuck, he can fix or figure out what's wrong instantly. It amazes me how much he knows about DCC."

"I met Dennis at the Brass Expo this year. I had him work on three engines. An Overland SDL39, an Overland GP9m and a U25B. He installed ESU loksound FULL THROTTLE in all three. Added cab interiors with lights and crew as well as classification markers. Then speed matched them. They run and sound better than anything I've ever heard. The next engines are Milwaukee F6A and a Milwaukee K1. These two brass Milwaukee steam engines will get Paint, DCC, Sound, Lighting, the works. Highly recommend."

"I own the Soo Line Centercab that is featured in the video on the ELS Train Service website. Need I say more? Everyone is amazed at how great it performs and the absolutely phenomenal sound. I have had Dennis tune up more engines than I can count.  He does all my DCC work and maintenance on my engines."
