Welcome to YouChoos! - The home of bespoke and unique OO/N gauge railway models

Who are YouChoos?

Hello! My name is John Gymer and I live in a typical English village in the West Country not too far from the historical city of Bath, called Steeple Ashton. Ever seen "Midsomer Murders"? Well, think that and you're pretty close to the character of Steeple Ashton (but without the murders)!

As well as providing the products and services detailed on this website for modelling, I'm also very much involved in my local church, Queensway Chapel, in the nearby town of Melksham, being one of the youth leaders there, and am also an active Gideon.

Model railways have been my hobby for some years now, having started out when my brothers gave me a Hornby OO Flying Scotsman set for Christmas. Over time, with the assistance of my son Tommy, we have created a few layouts, each at varying stages of completion (a model railway is never finished!).

YouChoos' focus these days is on British DCC sound decoders, and sadly no longer have enough time to offer commissions or installation services. I also have a proper daytime job with IET too, who are a software company, so YouChoos is run self-employed in my evenings and weekends.

The results are great fun and the end products are often breathtaking... to see a loco chuffing along with smoke, sound, lights, flickering firebox, crew, lit and populated coaches on a fully-furnished layout just brings out the little boy in me - if you've ever tinkered with models then you'll have a good idea what I mean!

From May 2012, my ever-patient wife Samantha has joined in the fun. Chances are that any sound decoder loaded with YouChoos sounds from now on will have been lovingly loaded by her!
