ELS Train Service is dedicated to providing premium DCC and DCC Sound installations for our customers. We handle your engines with the utmost care to ensure none of the delicate components will be damaged. We will talk with you regarding your expectations from your DCC system. Our preferred sound decoders are ESU LoKsound and Soundtraxx Econami/tsu2. We will use any decoder that you, the customer prefers.

We also re-motor and repair most brands of engines. Including replacing drives and gearboxes. We have a strong background in BRASS locomotives and are comfortable working on any and all manufactures of Brass.

We typically install two speakers if the application allows. On Brass steam engines, we try to install the speakers in the boiler when ever possible.
