IMPORTANT NOTE FOR HORNBY SELECT AND ELITE USERS:  Some versions of the software on the Select and Elite will not talk to these decoders.  If you are unsure, please just buy one decoder to test.  If your Hornby controller will not talk to the 36-557, please buy our other item here instead:  https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/183748912792   or just search

If you buy a 36-557 from us and it won't work on your Hornby system, simply post it back to us with coin to cover the extra of the combined pack in the link above, all we ask is that you return it to us in perfect condition with all packaging / paperwork etc.

Contact Us: If you have a question about this product, please contact us prior to purchase. Please understand that eBay has very strict communication rules and messages sent via eBay requesting discounts, special pricing or requesting that we make a sale outside of eBay will not be answered.

Deliveries: We offer Economy and Express delivery options, and on smaller items postal delivery options. Economy Delivery is generally using a point to point courier - typically DPD Homecall, Royal Mail Eco Bulk or Hermes Parcelnet. These services take 3 to 5 working days (not including weekends) to deliver. On some products we offer a choice of 1st Class post - this typically takes 1 to 2 days but is not a time guaranteed service. On all products we offer the choice of Express Courier - this will be DPD, Fedex or, in limited areas, Royal Mail Express, and aims for delivery the day after dispatch. Orders have to be placed by 9am for us to guarantee dispatch that day by Express. Express to Northern Ireland, Scottish Highlands, Channel Islands and all off-shore locations takes 2 working days. All non-Express orders are dispatched in order of receipt.

Combined Postage: Please use the ADD TO BASKET option to combine postage as we are unable to manually combine if you choose to make multiple payments. If you are buying more than one item, always use Add To Basket as clicking Buy It Now will result in eBay taking you straight to checkout without the option to add further items.

Payment: We only accept Paypal for eBay orders. If you don't have Paypal, eBay will give you the option to pay by Credit or Debit card at checkout.

Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Regulations 2006: We are registered under the Valpac DTS WEEE scheme, member number 400017. Please dispose of your used electrical items at an authorised recycling centre - if you do not know where your local centre is, please contact the Recycle More scheme for further information.

International Orders: If an item does not offer you a postage choice to your country, we are unable to send it abroad. Some products are restricted (for example because they contain batteries) whereas others are prohibitively expensive to ship or subject to restrictions on sale.

VAT: All prices include VAT at the current rate. We operate under a point of sale system and do not issue VAT receipts with every sale. If you need an itemised VAT receipt, please indicate on your payment.

Returns: If your item is faulty (or appears to be) please contact us for advice, as most issues can be resolved without return or by exchanging components. In many cases, we find that items returned as faulty prove to be perfect and simply require adjustment or advice due to their complexity. We accept returns for change of mind - please notify us within 30 days of receiving your item and return it within 60 days of purchase - items must be unused and with all packaging intact. A free return service is provided only for faulty goods - in the event of non-faulty items being claimed as faulty in order to obtain a free return, a deduction as shown on our return label will be made from any refund. For all orders placed from 1st November, the 30 days starts 26th December rather than the date of delivery.
