Due to the weight, ALL ProtoThrottle orders shipping to Canada, Australia and New Zealand MUST choose UPS as the shipping option. They will not ship USPS First Class.


Due to regulatory requirements, the ProtoThrottle can only be shipped to the US, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.  Orders placed with a shipping address to any other country will be cancelled and refunded. No workarounds, no exceptions of any kind.


The ProtoThrottle™ Realistic Control Stand Throttle mimics a standard EMD control stand including full detent throttle and reverser handles, a spring-loaded horn handle, a push-on/push-off bell button, and fully programmable front and rear headlights with a setting for ditch lights. In addition, the ProtoThrottle comes with a robust faceplate machined from aluminum, including prototype bezels, and anodized to give the look and feel of a real control stand.
