Model Railways are usually built to a ratio of 1:76 (OO scale), 1:87 (HO scale) or 1:148 (N scale). But they can get a whole lot smaller!
David Smith from New Jersey in particular.

It’s small even compared to a ball point pen head! It’s a remarkable feat of engineering and needs to be seen to be believed but it’s real and can be seen here – world’s smallest model railway.Previous Monday Model Railway Factoids: #1 The First Model Railway
