YouChoos Products

After a number of years, as of January 2014, YouChoos made the very difficult decision to cease taking general commissions and performing installations for customers except in a few exceptional circumstances. This is due primarily to lack of time, and will enable us to concentrate solely on developing DCC sound projects, supplying decoders and kit, so that you can perform the installations either yourself, or through one of our partners.

We will of course continue to provide support for the decoders and kits supplied, as well as assistance for owners of existing YouChoos-enhanced locomotives. A vast range of information is available on this website to help you understand how to perform the installations yourself, and we will provide assistance whenever possible via e-mail and phone too.

Alternatively, your local model shop, or local DCC fitter may be able to help you, but if you get stuck, then we are very happy to recommend our partners below. All those listed below have been certified by YouChoos for quality and techniques.

Not all scales and enhancements are available from all partners, so use the table to choose your preferred fitter. Please note that none of the service providers listed are directly related to YouChoos, except by experience, or as resellers, so any work that you choose to undertake using them is strictly between them and yourself - YouChoos holds no liability in that relationship. However, any partner listed has been through a process of review in order to attain certification, so you can expect a good level of quality and communication - we wouldn't list them if we didn't feel they could provide a good service!
