DCC Chip Fitting

We only undertake the fitting of chips to DCC Ready Locomotives and Digital Ready Slot Cars, we do not undertake retro fitting of DDC chips to Model Locomotives or Slot Cars.

We will, however, offer you plenty of information if you wish to have a go at retro fitting chips yourself.       

We will also fit "Free of Charge" a DCC Chip to any Locomotive if the Locomotive and chip is purchased from us.
