Iowa Scaled Engineering will be auctioning off two ProtoThrottles and receivers with full proceeds donated to the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre in Toronto, Canada, in honor of Lionel Strang, host of A Modeler's Life podcast. Lionel received treatment for Stage 4 melanoma and he raises funds each year to help other cancer patients cope with the emotional burden that cancer brings.
Each throttle features a custom-painted and weathered faceplate - one in early EMD seafoam green and the other in standard "peeling paint" black.
The auction will be held on eBay with bids accepted starting July 29th and ending August 8th.
