When Steve Worack realized that there were few companies providing state of the art electronics for the model railroad industry, he knew he needed to fill that gap, thus, he founded Circuitron in 1970. His first product line was limited roof-top locomotive strobes, a grade crossing detection unit (DT-1), grade crossing flasher (FL-2) and a hand-held throttle. Two years later his product line was picked up by Wm. K. Walthers, and by then, Steve has developed about 10 circuits and a dozen and a half accessories. Through advertisements in Railroad Model Craftsman and Model Railroader magazines, Circuitron became a known brand across the country.
Today, Circuitron continues to expand and innovate its product line and its products are now distributed all over the world. Circuitron is committed to being the finest manufacturer of Model Railroad electronics and accessories, and Trainz proudly offers a wide range of products by Circuitron.
