Hi

in the last time we use TRAN decoders http://www.tran.at/index.shtml, they are very small.

http://www.tran.at/Produkte/DCX76z.shtml
DCX76z fits in most TT scale models. The manufacturer is extremely flexible and the devices have excellent performance . This small decoder has all US typical features (Blinking lights, Dimmed lights, Alternative blinking, Single Pulse Strobe, Double Strobe, Flashing Headlight, Ditch-Light left, Ditch-Light right, Rotary beacon, Gyralite, Mars Light, Soft-Start of all lights).

The smallest sound decoder is the SL75 http://www.tran.at/Produkte/SL75.shtml

Welcome aboard!

TRAN has an extremely bad service. If you got a problem, they are left alone. No response in two years.

Hi MacG

I cannot confirm your words. I was always served in excellent way.
We installed over hundred devices from TRAN without any problem.

(drop me a PM in case you have a trouble)

Hi Krokodil,

I'm afraid, I have to confirm MacG's experiences... I had a question about a feature and received an answer within 10minutes after sending the mail (which is really good). Then I had another question and I never received an answer (which is bad).

Then I ordered a DCX51P12, but it didn't work as expected and I couldn't configure it to work better. I sent Tran an email and also never got an answer. So I finally sent the decoder back to the shop. I also heard about big variations in quality.

Maybe you had luck, because you installed so many decoders, but as I know, I'm not alone with my aversion to Tran. But, finally, I stuck with Austrian decoders, since I only use Zimo any more. I like the quality and the driving, and whenever I had a question or problem, they answered and helped me very quickly.

The reason is maybe a language and time problem.

And what is their mother tongue if not German?
