There are lots of contenders to the smallest model railway but NOTHING I’ve seen comes close to this one.
If you think Z gauge is small, you’re in for a wake up call.
At 1:35,200 scale, and that’s not a typo, and measuring just .2inches this fully working railway can be held between your finger tips. It even has a mountain with a tunnel through which the tiny train passes through.
Details of how it works are included in the video.

Andy is a lifelong modeler, writer, and founder of modelrailwayengineer.com. He has been building model railways, dioramas, and miniatures for over 20 years. His passion for model making and railways began when he was a child, building his first layout at the age of seven.
Andy’s particular passion is making scenery and structures in 4mm scale, which he sells commercially. He is particularly interested in modelling the railways of South West England during the late Victorian/early Edwardian era, although he also enjoys making sci-fi and fantasy figures and dioramas. His website has won several awards, and he is a member of MERG (Model Railway Electronics Group) and the 009 Society.
When not making models, Andy lives in Surrey with his wife and teenage son. Other interests include history, science fiction, photography, and programming. Read more about Andy.
