Does anybody know why I cannot find any stock of these on line?
Digitrains have a six pack and they are the only site I can find that have any at all? I could do with a 12 pack.

Don’t know who makes them but my bet is they haven’t made any since lockdown. Many small companies have shut up shop for the duration.

It seems they're imported from the US: http://www.circuitron.com/index_files/Tortoise.htm

Thanks Ian S, I had seen that. Maybe they are in a container on a ship in the mid Atlantic.

Have you considered Cobalt iP Digital by DCC Concepts - they have a decoder built-in? I have eighteen and they are wired for both toggle switch and DCC operation from my Elite - I only use the toggle-switch for operating. Sorry should have added that they are available in DCC and analogue.

Jeremy at Digitrains advises re Tortoise Motors,

We have them on order all the time and they come through as and when they're available, we have no date I'm afraid. Sorry. We're stuck waiting for them too.
Regards,
