What About a Warranty?
At Litchfield Station, customer satisfaction is primary. When we install a decoder for you, we warranty our work. You have 30 days to let us know if things are not right. If there is a problem related to DCC, we will make it right.
If the problem is related to the locomotive mechanism or abuse, we reserve the right to charge for time (USD $ 50 per hour) and materials to fix it.
We cannot be responsible for things we cannot control, like shipping damage.
