Zimo sound news, Our latest high spec, premium Activedrive, Speed Lock and new Protodrive sound projects for Zimo sound decoders are now pay to use. These can be ordered at the time you buy your sound decoder online.However there is still a large range of our Zimo sound projects with Mutidrive and Digidrive titles are still free to use or one penny when you order your new decoder online. Reblows or coded downloadable soundfiles are all chargeable. This brings us into line with our competitors most of whom have charged a healthy premium for all their sounds for many years. Small and medium Zimo sound decoders with Activedrive, Speed Lock or Protodrive sounds are now £114.00 and only £99.00 with any of our other sounds. Keep an eye out for the new Protodrive range of projects, similar to our Activedrives but these were Paul Chetter's own versions and often had extra features or unique settings for individual loco types.

Engineman updates We're not all about Zimo either, the range of Engineman sounds for ESU Loksound is also growing. The new class 31 and Vacuum only 08 is coming soon and also all new Panniers are in development. 

 Our wide choice of DCC decoders is complemented by our stocks of UK locomotives to  put them in.  We have locos from Bachmann, Dapol, Graham Farish, Heljan and Hornby in gauges from N to O.  The loco section is well worth a visit with a good choice at competetive prices and a variety of rolling stock too.  

Having found your DCC System and chosen locos to control you will need some equipment to install them.  We have tools, connectors, cables and consumables to meet most needs.


We have good stocks of PECO track and accessories plus a wide range of Woodland Scenics, Metcalfe Kits, Evergreen styrene mouldings and card, Metals, Precision Paints, Adhesives and a wide variety of other materials.


Digitrains has long been associated with Zimo sound decoders and the most extensive range available of Paul Chetter's sound projects. For Loksound V4 we are able to supply these with any of our Tony Molyneux sound projects plus any of the Loksound files from their library too. 


The vast majority of our sound projects loaded onto new decoders have always been free and all existing sounds that were free will continue do be so. Reblows were always £15.00 and will continue to be so. 


A whole new range of all new Zimo "Activedrive-Pro" sound projects of the very highest quality with great new features will become available and these will be available at a premium price. These are guaranteed original and genuine sound projects with all one the day recordings having been used, no stock sounds grafted in as gap fillers. This is as real as it gets to hearing the living loco. The first is the all new Baldwin project followed by new 08, 03 and Ruston diesel shunter projects. Again the free (or one penny web buy) originals will always be available, it's just that now there's a greater choice. 

Most of our competitors have always charged extra for their sounds and this decision, whilst not taken lightly,  has been made to reflect the investment costs in great new original work. 

Digitrains has continued make friends with several clever people over the years who create sound projects and we are now able to provide some of these as paid for coded downloads for Loksound V4 decoders. More details to follow as the range expands.

Please telephone for details or email for information sheets to peruse the online soundfile information. If you have an existing Loksound decoder we'd need the serial number of it or we can supply new decoders with these files on for the same extra coded download charge.

New sounds from "ENGINEMAN". These projects are bought in from Engineman and are sold at a £12.00 premium per project load. 

Introducing an all new range of Loksound sound projects form Engineman. These original, unique projects owing nothing to anything that has gone before. They are all new authentic loco recordings and project work undertaken by Engineman who actually works with Steam and Diesel locos and knows how they work intimately to create super accurate profiles for your Loksound fitted models. Engineman always strives to go that extra mile to ensure that model will be able to replicate the behaviour of the real thing, so you know you’re guaranteed to get the most accurate and realistic driving experience. 

Also JMC Class 14 sound from well known DCC exponent John Gay, also available now. 

Digitrains are very lucky to have a dedicated group of sound enthusiasts recording and processing genuine locomotive sound for us.  With their help our own, growing, choice of quality sound schemes for ZIMO and Loksound decoders are earning great acclaim.  We also stock decoders from the ESU catalogue produced by South West Digital. 

Plus we can of course load any of the ESU original sound projects from their excellent range of European and US sounds from their online downloads library. Just provide the five digit code for your choice and we'll put it on for you. We even stock small numbers of Loksound Select US spec decoders too. These have their own distinct range of sounds to choose from.
