Greetings Friends,

Thank you for your support of Streamlined Backshop this past year.  I look forward to serving you in new year.

I wish you all a healthy, peaceful, successful and prosperous new year.

Happy New Year, 2017.

Bryan Vianco
Owner, SBS4DCC

A Happy New Year...

As 2016 comes to close, I look around and realize it was crazy year and a good year.  I am blessed to have this opportunity and thankful for your support.  I look forward to working even harder to serve your DCC and model railroad needs in the new year.  Don't forget, SBS4DCC also stocks track and a huge selection of model trains in addition to the best selection of DCC products on the web.

So lets start the New Year off with a simple Thank You!

In appreciation for your support of Streamlined Backshop in 2016,  I am extending my Free Holiday Shipping offer from now until the end of January, 2017.  

It's a simple offer, free shipping on any order over $150, no coupon required.

As I proof this edition of the Backshop Flyer, I note that it has a decided slant towards my N scale brethren.  While not intentional, it's just the way the news came in this time.  I have plans and aspirations to grow my HO offering in a big way this year.  To all my HO friends... hang tight.  I hope to add some great stuff just for you very soon.

So with only memories left of turkey and tinsel, the holiday season nearly gone, and an optimistic eye on 2017, it's time to head into the train room and run a train or two...  

For those who have forgotten... F0 = Headlight, F1 = Bell, F2 = Horn...

So when you finish reading this... fire one up, ring the bell and blow your horn!

Ok... If you know me you know I am pumped over the newest Kato product announcement.

Announcing the Kato N Scale Olympian Hiawatha.  Cool.

SBS4DCC Tutorials, Tips & Tricks 

I have added a new content today to the Tutorials, Tips & Tricks section that needs to be highlighted...

I would also highlight some old information worth reading...

Wiring Multiple Speakers To A Decoder

I have received a couple calls this past week that make this topic quite relevant and I encourage every one of my newsletter subscribers to give this a read as it is important information to know.

SBS4DCC New InterMountain N Scale High Detail Wheel Sets

InterMountain has released a new series of N scale High Detail wheel sets available now from SBS4DCC.


Digitrax Series 6 N Scale Drop-In Sound Decoders

Digitrax has released three new drop-in type sound decoder formats for Kato locomotive models.

The new decoder models include:

Of course, the updated SDXN146K1E format means the old model Digitrax SDN144K1E Sound DCC Decoder has been moved to the Clearance Aisle.

ESU LokSound

Great New ESU Products Coming Soon

The much anticipated ESU LokPilot Nano and Nano-FX have started shipping in Europe.  That means we should see them in these United States very soon.

Order yours now for quick shipping once these hit the shelves.

Good news for Full Throttle fans.  ESU has found a way to integrate the new LokSound Full Throttle features into the LokPilot line of motion decoders.  This update will likely be limited to the Standard line due to physical limitations of the Micro and Nano hardware.

Stay tuned via Backshop Flyer and I will let you know when the new features are ready to use.  I have heard an early estimate of First Quarter 2017.
