Ive recently been using jlcpcb,price and delivery times are about the same.There linked with easyeda so you can draw your schematic,route the pcb layout and order the boards all within the same software.There also linked with lcsc so you can  order the components as well,again  from the same program.
 Jlcpcb are also rumoured to be offering an assembly service starting in september (already  available in china) at a fairly reasonable price,no more struggling to see,let alone solder  those 0201 smd parts.

There is so much competition that the only one to benefit is the customer.  PCBWay already offer build services, and others are catching on quick.  I've just had some boards made by PCBWay, and the only deciding factors were that PCBWay had cheaper shipping, and I already had a credit in my account so I got them for next to nothing.  But on the pure cost of the boards there was really nothing in it,

I want to get a number of custom wiring looms made up (50 or 100) basically 6 pin socket 2 x 2 pin socket and a number of wires.

Any idea where I can get these done economically?

Also like to get the same number of DCC blanking plugs done at the same time.

Always etched my own PCBs, which isn't difficult. but they don't come out as pretty as those above..

Exactly the same reasons I no longer do my own boards
