Testing the GP7 Lowrider Train set.

This is what we call the GP7 LowRider standard Train Set, It is a complete train set with the riding engine, bench seat car, Gondola car, the caboose that has a removable top for storing things like covers for the train set or what ever you want to store and a 20 foot X 33 foot oval track. The train set was designed with saftey in mind, it is very low to the track to help keep it stable around the turns and is very low on the track, that is so if by some reason it derails it will keep it from flipping over in most cases. and if you notice the trucks sit in between the cars so kids cant get there fingers under the wheels. the train set is very easy to set up, all you need is two 12 volt batteries that I don supply but I could supply them if requested. You get all that for the low price of $, I will need at this time two months to build one for you.

Model Train Scales & Sizes Explained

There’s something special about model trains. Whether moving or static, train hobbyists can all agree that a well-made model train captures a little piece of reality, showcasing an engineering marvel in miniature. But how do you make sense of the different model train scales and sizes available? Read below to get a better understanding of model train scales and keep your model building on track!

Most common model train scales

When you’re on the hunt for your first train kit, you’ll soon discover that there are a lot of different scales to choose from. When model trains were first created, there wasn’t any standard size, which meant that you would end up with trains that couldn’t be placed on the same tracks as another. Manufacturers eventually realised their folly, and introduced some standard replica train scales, as listed below:

  • Z scale &#;
  • N scale &#;
  • HO scale &#;
  • S scale &#;
  • O scale &#;
  • G scale &#; to

What are the main differences?

Aside from the varying sizes, there are a few other key points for each scale which may help you decide which one is best for you. Below is a quick overview:

  • Z scale &#; First released in by Marklin, though fewer options are available, their quality, accurate designs and precision mechanisms make for unique collector items.
  • N scale &#; The “N” is short for nine, which refers to the 9mm gauge of the N scale rail tracks. With a wide range of options, the N scale model train is ideal for constructing a larger landscape without taking up a lot of space.
  • HO scale &#; “HO” stands for half O, as they are a smaller alternative to the O scale. This size has the widest range available, and combines greater detail and more accessories to give you a versatile model train experience.
  • S scale &#; Made popular by the American Flyer Trains, this size captured interest due to a realistic two-rail track system. While the American Flyers dominate the options available, other manufacturers now offer more modern model train options.
  • O scale &#; This became the popular model train scale following WWI. These run on a three-rail track system, which gives you scope for more complex track layouts.
  • G scale &#; Larger and more robust, these trains are great for outdoor displays where space is more readily available, and you can include real elements such as plants or water features to make your display stand out.

Despite the age of the model train hobby, it remains as popular as ever today as it did when it first began. From classic steam locomotives like the C57 to the more modern electric locomotives, train kits have something to offer everyone.

S Scale


S Scale is one of the oldest model railroading scales. The earliest known scale train was constructed from card in The first working models appeared in England in the early 20th century. Modeling in S Scale increased in the ss when CD Models marketed 3/16&#; model trains.

American Flyer was a manufacturer of Standard Gauge and O gauge &#;tinplate&#; trains based in Chicago, Illinois. It never produced &#;S&#; Scale trains. Chicago Flyer was purchased by A.C. Gilbert Co. in the late 30s. Gilbert began manufacturing &#;S&#; scale trains in around that ran on three rail &#;O&#; gauge track. This was known as 3/16&#; O Gauge. Gilbert stopped producing trains during WWII. When the war ended, Gilbert began producing true &#;S&#; Scale &#;S&#; Gauge trains in

The term &#;S Scale&#; was adopted by the National Model Railroading Association (NMRA) in to represent that Scale that was half of 1 gauge which was built to scale. A.C. Gilbert&#;s improvements in modeling and promotions of S gauge largely shaped the world of modeling today.

S gauge entered what many consider its heyday in s (although there is more available in S scale today than was available during this period) . However, during that period, Lionel outsold American Flyer nearly 2 to 1. American Flyer&#;s parent company went out of business and the brand was sold to a holding company that also owned Lionel in

In the s and 30s toy trains were built of plated & lithographed tinplated steel. Since they were toys and not models per se, wheels and couplers were oversized. They were designed more for ease of use and robust service rather than pure fidelity of reproduction. Details were often represented as simple graphics on the models or even omitted altogether. Enthusiasts of toy trains are sometimes known as &#;tinplaters.&#;

Very little &#;S&#; scale equipment was ever &#;tinplate.&#; American Flyer does have oversized wheel flanges and couplers. A better term for American Flyer enthusiasts is &#;Highrailers.&#; Highrailers, both collectors and operators, are a large and enthusiastic group with a brisk trade in both vintage and contemporary models. Many annual public events are held to promote and proudly display Highrail equipment.

Lionel re-introduced S gauge trains and accessories under the American Flyer name in Another S manufacturer, American Models, entered the marketplace in and is now also one of the major S suppliers. S-Helper Service, another major S gauge manufacturer of locomotives, rolling stock, track and other products, began operations in and delivered their first S products in In , S-Helper Service was sold to MTH Electric Trains. And while the S scale market has seen a number of brass model manufacturers, today the major brass model supplier in S scale/S gauge is River Raisin Models. Today&#;s S gauge/S scale modelers have a greater selection and higher quality products, from a wide range of manufacturers, that at any time in the past. In addition to the basics of locomotives, rolling stock, and track, various manufacturers now offer S scale structures, detail parts, figures, other scenic items, bridges, and more.

Rail transport modelling scales

NameScaleGaugeComments Picture Grand Scale and up&#;mm and up 10&#;in (&#;mm). Several large scales exist, but are not strictly model railroading gauges. Instead, they are used mostly in commercial settings, such as amusement parkrides.Miniature Railway.JPGLive steam&#;mm or
&#;mm Ridable, outdoor gauge, named according to the gauge in inches, and scale in inches per foot, for example 7+1&#;4&#;in (&#;mm) gauge, &#;inch scale. The gauge is 7+1&#;2&#;in (&#;mm) in the western parts of US and Canada, where the scale sometimes is &#;inch for diesel-type models. Private and public (club) tracks exist in many areas, among them the world's largest model railroad, Train Mountain Railroad,[1] with over 25 miles (40&#;km) of tracks. Powerful locomotives can pull 50 or more passengers. Narrow-gauge models in this gauge can be as large as scale.Livesteamtrain.jpg5-inchLive steam&#;mm or &#;mm Ridable, outdoor gauge. The gauge is 5&#;in (&#;mm) in Europe, but 4+3&#;4&#;in (&#;mm) in US and Canada. For standard gauge prototypes at 5&#;inch, the correct scale is 11&#;16&#;inch per foot or approximately Alternatively /8 inch per foot is adopted, only Australia for ease of conversion. allowing a scale of 3/32 inch per full size inch. This results in an oversize locomotive and often negates building inside valve gear locomotives (such as the GWR King Class ) due to frame width restrictions caused by 5&#;in (&#;mm) gauge track. Together with the scale above, this is a popular scale for backyard railroads. Pulling power is enough for more than a dozen passengers on level tracks. SE scale7&#;8&#;inch45&#;mm Models of 2&#;ft (&#;mm) gauge prototypes using 45&#;mm (&#;in) track. Used by folks modelling the Maine 2-footers, but increasingly also by anyone interested in very large scale models of industrial prototypes, including the many Welsh slate mines and other European operations. Although this is mostly a scratch-builders scale, there is an increasing supply of kits, parts and figures. Some modelers using 7&#;8&#;scale operate on 32&#;mm (&#;in) track, used to replicate 18&#;in (&#;mm) gauge industrial lines found in Great Britain and other countries. Live steam89&#;mm Ridable, outdoor gauge. The gauge is 3+1&#;2&#;in (89&#;mm) the world over. Originally defined to be 89&#;mm3 gauge in Europe. Gauge 3&#;mm One of the original model railroad scales standardized in , a minority interest, which is undergoing a revival in the UK and in Germany (where it is known as Spur II). 64&#;mm (2+1&#;2&#;in) gauge&#;3 track is commercially available, as are a growing number of locomotive and rolling stock kits. The European standard of scale trains on 45&#;mm (&#;in) track is called IIm scale, as per European narrow-gauge naming conventions or G scale, its popular name. Live steam63&#;mm At 2+1&#;2&#;in (64&#;mm), this is the smallest of the "ridable" gauges[citation needed]. Only one or two passengers can be pulled. This was one of the first popular live steam gauges, developed in England in the early s, though now less popular than the larger gauges it still has a following. A model can normally be lifted by one person. Wide gauge or &#;mm Called Standard Gauge by Lionel, which trademarked the name. Other manufacturers used the same gauge and called it Wide Gauge. Not widely produced after Gauge No. 2 using track of gauge 2&#;in (&#;mm) was one of the standard model gauges in 16 mm scale32&#;mm This scale was first developed in the UK in the s to depict 2&#;ft (&#;mm) narrow-gauge prototypes using 32&#;mm (&#;in) or "O gauge" track and wheels, but really took off in popularity during the s and s. Originally, it was mostly used as an indoor modelling scale, but has also developed as a popular scale for garden railways of narrow-gauge prototypes. Some manufacturers that produce models depicting North American 2&#;ft (&#;mm) narrow-gauge prototypes have also adopted this scale for use alongside the near-compatible Fn3 (15&#;mm or ) scale on 45&#;mm (&#;in) track already popular in the US. Both electric, battery and live steam propulsion is used to power model locomotives in this scale, and is supported by a growing range of commercially available ready-to-run models, kits and parts.Rail-buskerville-railway-amoswolfe.jpgFn3 scale45&#;mm Similar to G Scale below, this scale also uses 45&#;mm (&#;in) gauge track, and is used for both indoor and garden railways of narrow-gauge prototypes. The scale of was developed to depict North American 3&#;ft (&#;mm) gauge trains in exact proportion to their correct track gauge whilst using 45&#;mm (&#;in) gauge model track. It equates to 15&#;mm = 1&#;foot (1: ) scale. Increasingly popular for both electric and live steam propulsion of model locomotives, with an ever-growing range of commercially available ready-to-run models, kits and parts. Fn3 scale, together with G scale and 1&#;2&#;inch () scale, are commonly and collectively referred to as "Large Scale" by many modelers. Fn2 scale30&#;mm or
32&#;mm Used by mostly American modelers wishing to model smaller industrial prototypes, including two-footers; this is a minority scale. While 30&#;mm track is more prototypically accurate for 2&#;ft gauge, many modelers use 32&#;mm track gauge for the convenience of access to O-scale mechanisms, trucks, and track elements. G scalevarious45&#;mm (Originally from the Germangroß (meaning "big"), now also G as in Garden) G is generally used for garden railways of narrow-gauge prototypes, and uses the same track gauge as 1 gauge, below. The scale ranges approximately from 1&#;19 to 1&#;29, according to the size and gauge of the prototype. G Scale Train Model and Finger jpgGn15various&#;mm Evolved around the Millennium (possibly earlier), much in the same manner than On30, HOn30, and Nn3 have, which is the desire to model in a larger scale, but using the track gauge, mechanisms and wheelsets of a smaller scale; in this case HO/OO. If Gn15 did not start in the UK, it certainly has the largest following there. Some model "estate railways", inspired by the Eaton Hall Railway built at the end of the 19th century by Sir Arthur Haywood, while others simply desired a means of modeling in something close to half-inch scale in a small space. This scale is closely aligned with the "micro layout" movement. IIm scale45&#;mm Similar to G scale above, this scale also uses 45&#;mm (&#;in) gauge track, and is used for both indoor and garden railways of narrow-gauge prototypes. It depicts 1&#;metre gauge trains in exact proportion to their correct track gauge. 1&#;2 inch scale45&#;mm Similar to G scale above, this scale also runs on 45&#;mm (&#;in) gauge track, and is generally used for both indoor and garden railways of narrow-gauge prototypes. The scale of in combination with 45&#;mm (&#;in) track is an attempt to model North American and UK 3&#;ft (&#;mm) narrow-gauge or 3&#;ft&#;6&#;in (1,&#;mm) gauge trains in better proportion to the rails they run on. 2 gauge&#;mm or
45&#;mm The dominant scale used in the United States for models of "standard gauge" trains running on 45&#;mm (&#;in) track, even though is more prototypically correct. represents standard gauge using 2&#;in (&#;mm) gauge track, the original gauge&#;2. This fell into disuse as gauge&#;1 at &#;inch was very close. Some manufacturers kept the scale for the models but running them on slightly narrow gauge track. 1 gauge
3&#;8&#;inch scale45&#;mm This large scale, once rarely seen indoors in modern use but frequently used for modelling standard-gauge trains as garden railways, is making a comeback. The Japanese firm of Aster Hobby offers ready-to-run gas-fired live steam models. Accucraft Trains also offer finely crafted live steam models in this scale. Gauge&#;1 has seen something of a remarkable revival in recent years after decades of near extinction commercially, with a growing number of smaller UK manufacturers offering electrically powered and live steam locomotives and rolling stock in ready to run, parts and kit form. Some manufacturers offer so-called Gauge 1 items in scale (10&#;mm = 1&#;foot) that also run on 45&#;mm (&#;in) gauge track. Gauge 1 also has its own international association.[2]Static Model (nominal)41&#;mm Only used Static Models. L gauge (nominal)38&#;mm Unofficial designation of toy trains built from Lego. Equipment can be built to differing widths in relation to the track gauge, and are becoming increasingly popular among persons who grew up with the building toy system. With Technic axles and custom train wheels, it is possible to build Lego trains wider than standard 6-stud wide to fit into any gauge like G or O gauge. Q scale32&#;mm Developed in the United States so that 11&#;4&#;in (32mm) gauge track correctly represents standard gauge. Generally used by traction modelers. O scale
(UK, France)

(Germany, Japan, Russia, Czech)

(US)32&#;mm Name originally was "0" (zero), "1" through "6" were already in use for larger scales. In the US, this is frequently considered a "toy train" scale rather than for scale modelers. However, though toy trains use this gauge, they are often nowhere near scale. Scale modellers have begun to use this gauge for their scale models, resulting in a two separate groups of modelers within this "scale": "hi-railers", those who run toy train equipment on oversized track and scale modelers, who run scale equipment on scale track. A limited few have been able to combine both. Nowadays, even high-railers have the option of extremely precise scale models and track. Lionel, MTH Electric Trains, and Atlas O are major manufacturers of this scale. The best-known brand in Great Britain was that of Bassett-Lowke until the firm first closed in While in Russia and former Soviet countries is used gauge of 1,&#;mm (4&#;ft&#;11+27&#;32&#;in), but for the models used the NEM. Therefore, the gauge is 32&#;mm, rather than about 34&#;mm. In this models of the rolling stock are made in scale [3] The smallest scale for O Scale is In O scale terms, this is known as Mini-O Scale and in S Scale terms it is known as Major S Scale. (0)O scale (US)mm ( in) A Lionel variant on O-scale. Has a slightly shorter profile and sharper 27 inch diameter curves (but also comes in 42, 54 and 72 inch diameter curves) than typical oversized O scale track. Often, but not always, mechanically compatible with O-gauge trains.[4]ScaleSeven33&#;mm Exact scale version of British O gauge supported by a dedicated UK based society. The ScaleSeven Group defined more scale measures more strictly (e.g., the model gauge of 33&#;mm is fixed). Apart from standard gauge, it also defined Irish and Brunel gauges to this scale. Proto&#;mm These are to the same scale as US O gauge but are accurate scale models in all dimensions including track and wheels. OJ&#;mm O-scale models of 3&#;ft&#;6&#;in narrow-gauge prototypes running on mm gauge track. Virtually unknown outside Japan and Taiwan On2&#;mm O-scale models of 2&#;ft narrow-gauge prototypes running on 1&#;2&#;in (mm) gauge track. On30 gauge&#;mm Narrow gauge O-scale models running on HO gauge track. This scale was initially created by American "kit-bashing" modelers desiring large scale narrow gauge at low cost, at a time when the existing On3 market was dominated by expensive brass models. They put small O-scale superstructures on HO-scale mechanisms and trucks, but when the large company Bachmann issued train sets&#;— originally intended to run around Christmas trees&#;— On30 really took off. Also used in Australia to model 2'6" and other narrow gauge prototypes. On319&#;mm O-scale models of 3&#;ft narrow-gauge prototypes running on 3&#;4&#;in (19mm) gauge track. O&#;mm British narrow gauge running on HO gauge track. Prototypes of many diverse gauges are depicted in this scale, as well as fictitious lines. Even two-foot lines&#;— particularly slate&#;— are represented, although serious modelers with this interest generally prefer O 0e&#;mm Continental European (mostly German and Austrian) narrow gauge running on HO gauge track. Fleischmann produced the Magic Train line, intended for the toy market, but also adopted by serious modelers, particularly when supplemented with protypical details&#;— or "bashed" to be closer to the prototype. A number of smaller manufacturers produce a wide range of elements, including the high-end Henke, offering exquisitely accurate models for a handsome price. 0e has many active participants in Germany, with frequent Fremo modular meets on weekends. O1414&#;mm Accurate modelling of 2&#;ft narrow gauge in 7mm:ft/ scale supported by an informal web based society. O12&#;mm British narrow gauge representing prototypes of narrower than 2-foot gauge, running on TT gauge track. Z0 scale24&#;mm Got attention in Germany around as an attempt of a scale between O and HO. Z0 means "Zwischen-Null" (between O). S scale&#;mm Originally called "H-1" because it was half the size of Gauge 1 (), the "S" name is derived from "sixty-fourth". In the US, American Flyertoy trains used this gauge, but it is also used for more precise modelling and supported by several manufacturers. In the UK, S&#;scale modelling is largely the preserve of a dedicated few hand-building models or using a small number of available kits and parts, mostly depicting standard gauge prototypes but also narrow and broad gauge subjects too. The UK-based S Scale Model Railway Society is the oldest scale support society in the world, being first established in In the United States, S scale has a small but growing following in the modelling of standard-gauge railroads, especially those of the s and s era, a focus that is supported by S Helper Service[5] and American Models,[6] among others. This scale is also popular in North America to depict 3&#;ft (&#;mm) narrow-gauge prototypes (using dedicated &#;mm (&#;in) gauge track and known as "Sn3"), and elsewhere to depict the 3&#;ft&#;6&#;in (1,&#;mm) narrow-gauge railways (using H0 scale &#;mm&#;/ &#;in gauge track and known as "Sn31&#;2") of South Africa, Australia and New Zealand. (S)OO gauge&#;mm This scale is today the most popular modelling scale in the UK, although it once had some following in the US (on 19&#;mm&#;/ &#;in gauge track) before World War II. 00 or "Double-Oh", together with EM gauge and P4 standards are all to 4 mm scale as the scale is the same, but the track standards are incompatible. 00 uses the same track as HO (&#;mm&#;/ &#;in gauge), which is not correct for this slightly larger scale, but it is the most common British standard for ready-to-run trains. In Britain there exists The Double&#;0 Gauge Association to promote this scale. (00)OO99&#;mm Narrow-gauge modelling of approximately 2&#;ft (&#;mm) or 2&#;ft&#;6&#;in (&#;mm) prototypes on 9mm gauge (the same as N scale) track. It supported by a dedicated society and has a flourishing supply of kits and parts from many small UK-based suppliers. 12&#;mm Narrow-gauge modelling of 3&#;ft (&#;mm) prototypes on 12mm gauge (the same as TT scale) track. EM gauge&#;mm EM gauge was an earlier attempt in the s to improve the inaccuracies of OO gauge, with wider, more accurate track at 18&#;mm (&#;in) between the rails, but still narrower than the correct gauge. The gauge was later widened to &#;mm (&#;in). The UK-based EM Gauge Society exists to supports modellers of these standards. P4&#;mm P4 was created in the s as the most accurate possible standards for modelling in 4&#;mm scale. Supported by the UK-based Scalefour Society. HOj scale&#;mm Used for modelling 3&#;ft&#;6&#;in (1,&#;mm) Japanese prototypes on mm track. HO scale&#;mm This is the most popular model railway scale in the world, although not in the United Kingdom. The name is derived from "Half of 0". The European NEM define the scale as exactly , while the US NMRA defines it as exactly &#;mm&#;:&#;1&#;ft (approximately ). There is a vast selection of ready-to-run, kits and parts for locomotives, rolling stock and scenic items from many manufacturers depicting trains from all around the world. Proto&#;mm An alternative finescale standard for HO, with wheels and track that correspond with the prototype's, taking its lead from the establishment of P4 standards in the UK in Europe&#;mm H0 scale using 12&#;mm (&#;in) gauge track to represent 3&#;ft&#;6&#;in (1,&#;mm) used as "standard" gauge in many African countries, New Zealand, Queensland, Japan, etc. European H0m (metre-gauge) models represent prototype gauges ranging between and 1,&#;mm ( and &#;in). HOn3&#;mm H0 scale using 3-scale-foot narrow-gauge track. HOe gauge9&#;mm European HO scale narrow-gauge models using 9&#;mm (&#;in) (the same as N&#;scale) track to represent prototypes with gauge between and &#;mm ( and &#;in), particularly &#;mm (2&#;ft&#;5+1&#;2&#;in) and &#;mm (2&#;ft&#;5+15&#;16&#;in) gauge. HOn2 gauge7&#;mm American HO scale narrow-gauge models using 7&#;mm (&#;in) track to represent American prototypes, especially those in Maine, with a 2-foot track gauge. No known commercial activity; instead, European H0f gauge material and rolling stock is rebranded as "HOn2" for the North American market. H0f gauge&#;mm European H0 Scale narrow-gauge models using &#;mm (&#;in), the same as Z scale track, to represent Feldbahn-style 2 ft and mm gauge railways with prototype gauges between and &#;mm ( and &#;in). The "f" refers to "Feldbahn" ("field railway"), and these narrower track gauges were frequently used for industrial operations all across Europe. Some of these lines survived until and even later, particularly in Eastern Europe, where they remained economically viable later than in west Europe. In the German company Busch announced a mine railway (Grubenbahn) system, followed later in by a much more extensive array of narrow gauge locomotives, rolling stock and trackwork. The Busch Feldbahn track system features a steel strip between the rails, and magnets on the rolling stock to increase adhesion for tracking and increased engine performance. 3 mm scale12&#;mm or
&#;mm A UK version of TT introduced by the firm Tri-ang in the late s (then known as "TT-3") and supported by several other firms offering kits and parts. Commercial production by Tri-ang petered out in the late s, but "The 3&#;mm Society" was established in and a dedicated membership has kept this UK scale alive. TT-3 was originally designed to run on TT's 12&#;mm (&#;in) gauge track, but latterly the more accurate gauge of &#;mm (&#;in) (popularly known as "") has been adopted by some seeking more accuracy. Like the intermediate EM gauge standard in 4&#;mm scale, some modellers in 3&#;mm scale developed &#;mm (&#;in) track gauge, but this has largely been superseded by &#;mm (&#;in) gauge. Both 3&#;ft (&#;mm) narrow gauge (using 9&#;mm&#;/ &#;in gauge track) and 5&#;ft&#;3&#;in (1,&#;mm) broad gauge (using &#;mm&#;/ &#;in gauge track) are also modeled in 3&#;mm scale in the UK. TT scale12&#;mm Name stands for "Table Top". It is quite popular in Europe, particularly in Germany, especially in East Germany (former DDR), has some popularity in countries of former USSR and a small following in the United States. This scale is also used to depict 3&#;ft&#;6&#;in (1,&#;mm) narrow-gauge railways (using N scale 9&#;mm&#;/ &#;in gauge track and known as NZ) of New Zealand. N scale
9&#;mm As with N scale below, the name is derived from its Nine millimeter track gauge, but the scale is a slightly larger at &#;mm = 1 foot (). Developed as a UK commercial version of N scale in the late s, models are restricted to depicting UK prototypes. Although nominally to scale, some manufacturers took significant liberties with exact scale to suit production limitations. Despite the collapse of Graham Farish and its subsequent sale to Bachmann Industries there is a growing choice of ready-to-run models available. A few commercial kits and parts to fit N scale loco mechanisms and wheels are offered by the UK firm Peco to enable narrow-gauge prototypes to be modelled. N scale
9&#;mm N scale in Japan is normally built to this scale, even though most rail lines are 3&#;ft&#;6&#;in (1,&#;mm) gauge. Because the Shinkansen lines are 1,&#;mm (4&#;ft&#;8+1&#;2&#;in) (standard gauge), models of these are usually built to the scale of 2 mm scale&#;mm British finescale standard, older than N scale, being first used as long ago as with photos and articles published in the model press. Became more popular in the s, with The 2&#;mm Scale Association established by to promote and support modellers in this tiny scale, and it remains very active in the UK to this day. In recent years the finer track and wheel standards of 2&#;mm scale (but not the gauge) have also been adapted for use in N scale (on 9&#;mm&#;/ &#;in gauge) in Europe and called "fiNe", and is supported by the FREMO modelling organisation. Since the s, incredibly, 2&#;mm scale has been used to depict narrow-gauge prototypes on various track gauges down to 4&#;mm (&#;in)[citation needed], but almost everything has to be hand-made, unless some Z scale parts are used. N scale
9&#;mm Name derived from "Nine millimeter"; this is the second most popular scale worldwide. N scale developed by the German firm of Arnold Rapido in the early s, and was rapidly adopted worldwide as the most popular small-scale modelling choice. In recent years, finer profile wheels and track have been developed by some manufacturers (although the gauge and standards have remained the same). Huge range of ready-to-run models available as well as supporting kits and parts. With the introduction of an even smaller Z scale in , the modelling of narrower gauge prototypes has been possible using that scale's locomotive mechanisms, track and wheels. In North America the depiction of 3&#;ft (&#;mm) gauge railroads in N scale using Z scale track is known as "Nn3"; in Europe, metre-gauge modelling in N scale is known as "Nm".
