Soundtraxx Dealer Training

Best known, in railroad circles anyways, for the Durango and Silverton Narrow Guage Railroad, Don and Bernie recently travelled to Durango, Colorado where Soundtraxx is also based.  Here they attended three days of courses on Soundtraxx DCC products.  The lectures covered Sountraxx’s current selection of sound equipped DCC decoders, programming, and tips.  Also included was one day of hands-on installation of decoders.  One product that was well received was Soundtraxx’s new line of  DCC mobile decoders.  If you have ever tried to speed match a sound equipped A unit with a non-sound B unit, you know how hard it can be!  These new mobile decoders are made to match the Sountraxx line-up of sound equipped decoders in motor & lighting performance.  The bottom line is it is a very simple task to match those speed steps!  First announced in February, these decoders shipped in July and are now available in our shop.

Of course, if you are in Durango, you have to ride the train!  Unfortunately, due to mud slides, the trip did not go all the way to Silverton.  But still very enjoyable!
