SoundBytes + Scale Sound Systems

Did you know… The SoundBytes module was designed with the help of our friend jt Burke over at Scale Sound Systems. His ability to design speaker enclosures that extract awesome sound from small places helped make SoundBytes into the simple, affordable device that it is. Be sure to check out his line of premium DCC/sound speakers, LED kits, decoders, and installation services over at www.scalesoundsystems.com.

ProtoThrottle Update – Spring 2022

As we near the end of our current run of ProtoThrottles, we wanted to provide an update on the next batch (which, by the way, includes #1000!).  When the current stock of throttles in the ISE store is gone, that’s it until we get this next batch back in house, assembled, and tested.  See below for our best estimates when that will happen.  In the meantime, Spring Creek Model Trains and Des Plaines Hobbies may still have some in stock.

Check back here periodically for the latest updates.

Current Status

Final assembly & testing: Done!  We are back in stock with the grey and block faceplate throttles.  A few green ones will be coming later.


May 13, 2022: Back in stock!

April 8, 2022: Faceplates received.

March 25, 2022: Final faceplate machining started this week.  Will hopefully receive faceplates by mid-April.

March 8, 2022: Received 117 assembled boards.  The remaining boards are awaiting light switches.

February 17, 2022: Faceplates complete (ahead of schedule!) and sent back to the machinist for final engraving.
