OH WOW!!!!

I love MTF because of all the other scales here.

YOU GUYS HAVE GOT TO WATCH THIS VIDEO. These trains are 1:480 scale, a tenth the scale - which means the loco is 1/1000th the volume of an O-Gauge loco of a tank engine steamer!!!

SPECTACULAR!

Scales Modeled: Heavily into semiscale 0-27 with a few scale 0 and some older HO, S, N, and one G and Z scale set.
Thanks for bringing this to our attention, Lee. What that person has and continues to accomplish and refine is amazing!!!!

Think of the possibilities! You could actually have an operating layout in your model home or operate them inside of the Lionel Hobby Shop!!!

It is super small. A 4x8 layout would be all you would need.

I left HO because it was getting to small for my eyes... This is nuts. I wonder of each set comes with a magnifying glass......

Scales Modeled: O Gauge, and now N Scale (enjoying the lack of noise and ease of operation)
Wait until the rivet counters get ahold of this one!

Scales Modeled: 0 and 0n30

This would be great for coffee table layout. Or really cool under a glass top bar.
