When we started this adventure with the ProtoThrottle over 5 years ago, little did we know that we’d sell 10 throttles, let alone 100. But thanks to an enthusiastic ProtoThrottle user base, and a growing community engaged by the most realistic train control on the market, we just crossed the 1000th throttle mark! To celebrate, […]

Many of you have asked when it was coming back, and judging by the people who have already ordered a good number of […]

The Arduino DCC interface shield (ARD-DCCSHIELD) was one of our oldest products still in production. The original design was from 2015, when we were still fairly new at this and trying to figure out how to make a product.

We’ve gotten the question a number of times about how to turn the SoundBytes modules on and off with a switch. It’s actually really easy, but since the question gets asked, I figured I’d do a very quick write-up on it. First of all, the module requires a clean DC power supply of between 5 […]
I needed a way to drill a 3/8″ to 1/2″ diameter hole in 2″ thick rigid foam. Traditional drill bits wander too much and leave a terribly ragged hole. So do spade bits. A hole saw works great, but the smallest I could find was 3/4″. So… I tried a Grain Belt Models 36″ HO-scale […]
