New Econami Sounds just for the UK Modeller!
Introducing the best value and most accurate new UK sound decoders on the market for both steam and diesel locomotives. These budget-friendly solutions pack a big punch and are being sold and marketed exclusively in your part of the world!
This UK specific Econami line includes 3 initial formats: the ECO-100, ECO-200, and ECO-21PNEM. Starting at an MSRP of $79.95 and equipped with several UK-specific features and totally new soundsets, these decoders create the experience your customers have been missing and asking for at a value they have never seen!

Steam Sound effects include 5 unique UK specific exhaust chuffs that can be set to 2 cylinder, 3 cylinder, and articulated. This powerful decoder is packed with 16 never before released whistles for both shunting and road work, vacuum pumps and air compressors, cylinder cocks, blowdown, blower, buffer plates, guard whistle with coach doors, brake squeal and more!

Diesel Sound effects include 6 engine selections (English Electric Class 20, Brush Traction Class 31, English Electric Class 37, Brush Traction Class 47, Alstom Class 66/67 EMD 710, and BR Derby Class “Lightweight” DMU), 9 unique high/low airhorns, 2 air compressors, Startup/Shutdown, Spirax Valve, Shunting mode, guard whistle with coach doors, brake squeal and more!
These decoders contain the same great features found in the Econami U.S. line including the following:
  • High quality sound

  • Up to 6 lighting outputs 
  • 7-Band Equalizer 
  • 20+ Hyperlight effects

Now available in five formats to suit a variety of steam, diesel and electric locomotives, Econami provides high-quality 16-bit sound, Hyperlight lighting effects, and Hyperdrive2 advanced motor control for enhanced realism. New features include Flex-Map technology, an easy-to-use method for assigning any function to any function key.

The Econami line includes our smallest sound decoder, the ECO-100, measuring just 27mm x 10.5mm x 5mm, as well as the ECO-400 4-amp version for models requiring a little more “beef.” The 21-pin ECO-21P mates nicely to any model with the NMRA-supported 21-pin socket.

The new ECO-200 offer high amp motor circuit suitable for use in older HO models as well as many S and O gauge models.  The new ECO-PNP presents all of the great features of the Econami line of decoders in the ever-popular HO Scale drop-in style board used in many Athearn, Atlas, and similar models.

Steam and diesel versions include a selection of exhaust chuffs or prime movers, along with 16 whistles or airhorns to suit the most popular models. In addition, each decoder features multiple options for airpumps or compressors, bells, and couplers for even more customization. And finally, for the first time ever, each format is available in an electric version that includes a trolley bell, air whistles, generator, pantograph, pneumatic doors, and more!



This 2-amp, universal-style digital sound decoder is suitable for a wide variety of models from HO to S scale, and includes a connector to easily add a CurrentKeeper (P.N. 810140) to maintain performance over dirty track and switches.
