N Scale Model of a HO Train Layout
Posted with permission from David K Smith of http://www.whiteriverandnorthern.net
This is an N scale model of an HO scale train layout--a model of a model! Although it measures only 1/2-inch wide, the train runs and the station lights up. It's shown here with a dime.
(So, this would look good in a dollhouse!)
"This may be one of the crudest looking layouts you've ever laid eyes on, but before you pass such harsh judgment on it, take a guess at how big it is. You probably would not think that it's all of about a half-inch across the front. I nicknamed it the Sceniced and Ridiculously Small Railroad"
"In N Scale, the layout measures four by eight feet. And... it works. The train travels around the layout in either direction. It passes through a tunnel, through a bridge, past an illuminated passenger station, water tower, factory, and two houses. Plus trees, telephone poles and cars. Not to mention a waterfall and a river."
