If you think Z scale is small, try 1:900

    Welcome aboard! Those layouts are amazing! Does anyone know if they are electric drive? I remember seeing some similar little trains in Model Railroader a dozen or two years ago. There were holes in the track where air was forced and in turn pushed the cars. Does anyone else remember that or have any info on the trains posted above?
    Happy Railroading!

    I've seen those. Matter of fact got a catalog from them. Nice folks. Even have it so you can order the pieces ya' want and build the "layout" yourself. Here's the website:

    I have someone who used to razz [​IMG] me about my modeling in N scale. He referred to our size as being "Flea Gauge." Now we have trains that are prototypical size for the fleas to ride?? :D

    So I wonder what happens when my hay fever acts up, and I sneeze at the wrong moment? Will I ever find my trains again?? :(

    My eyes are letting me know that I'm over 50 years old. In a few more seasons, I might need an electron microscope to see 1:900 size layouts. :rolleyes:

    ;)

    I'm pushing it myself wearing bifocals & modeling in N scale. I can't even think of using 1:900. :eek:

    Could you see the first superdetailed T (for teeny) scale locomotive (well, with a microscope, anyway)? :D :D

    guys I ordered the catalog from Tiny Trains... one never knows....

    The locos and cars are connected to a belt which is running underneath the track. Rolling stock is rather cheap but the layouts are expensive. As far as I remember the cheapest one is a simple loop without any landscape and is around $250. Sure looks great. But just imagine if you're playing with this train and you cough....the trains would be gone forever. That's the scale in which a single ant means a disaster.
