I recently bought three

I recently bought three SFX004 Soung bug Plug and play decoders. number one was pluged into a 282 ateam locoder.equiped with a Digatrax dh123 decoder--no sound. Next I connected Numbertwo directly to track out put (MRC-DCC) system. Had a smakk puff of smoke, and a burn mark on the SFX004 Sound decoder. number three still sits in the package, afraid of destroying it. Any sugestings?  I have two factory installed Locos one steam one diesel, They are great. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I'm gonna miss this old Coffee Shop. Funny how you can become attached to a place. I almost feel that I'm leaving part of myself behind, farewell, old friend.

Good Evening All

So this is it! It's been a good run and I've met many nice people here and had a few visits from as  far as Texas (Teffy) and Missouri (Siberiamo). It's been an excellent adventure all the way back to the beginning when Elliot decided to make a go of it. Hopefully the new place will retain some of it's ambiance and warmth.

Lupo: Good to See YA! as you were one of the first patrons and one who I have missed dearly

Here's hoping everyone has a very healthy and prosporous New Year

Even though I'm a newbie to the shop,its sad to see it close.Anyhow I'm pretty sure that the new location will be a good place to get a cup of coffee and chat.Will the girls be transfered to the new location?

I took some shots before I left.
