Other Repairs/Stay-alive installation
Stay-alive installation, electrical repairs, mechanical repairs and decoder diagnostics can be undertaken by myself. Due to the nature of this type of work, they are subject to an inspection before an estimate can be given. Suspected faulty decoders can be diagnosed for a very small charge (depending on the time taken to diagnose the fault), but this charge will be waived if I have been asked to supply & fit a replacement. Stay-alive circuit installation is subject to space being available, and the specifications of installed decoders.
