ProtoThrottle in Action: Denver, CO

Spring Creek Model Trains will be at the Rocky Mountain Train Show Show in Denver, CO, this coming weekend, March 2-3, 2019. Stop by their booth for a chance to try out the ProtoThrottle, Realistic Control Stand Throttle!  We will also be there some of the time to talk ProtoThrottle to anyone interested.

Dead Rail Interface for the ProtoThrottle

We’ve been asked a few times if there would ever be a dead rail interface for the ProtoThrottle.  While this is not something we would likely embark on ourselves (Nathan and I are both N-scale modelers), the open source nature of the design has allowed others to do so.  Over the last few months, Martin Sant has been busy building a dead rail interface for the ProtoThrottle to run his G-scale trains.  Check out the progress on Martin’s blog.
