Iowa Scaled Engineering ProtoThrottle
Recently I tested a pre-production sample of the Iowa Scaled Engineering ProtoThrottle. This wireless Digital Command Control cab is designed to mimic a diesel-electric locomotive control stand in looks and operation. In both cases, the ProtoThrottle delivers.

The receiver. The ProtoThrottle isn’t a standalone DCC system and doesn’t program decoders. The unit also requires a receiver (sold separately) to operate.

One receiver is designed for DCC systems that use WiFi control. These include a Digitrax system connected to an LNWI LocoNet WiFi module, an ESU CabControl system, or DCC systems that use Java Model Railroad Interface (JMRI)-based WiFi control.
