Not all model trains are miniature trains. If you are a serious model trains collector then you are speaking about collecting one of the various model trains that come in various sizes such as N or Z or TT or HO and larger. The letters refer to the actual size of the train which correlates to the size of the model trains in relationship to a real train that runs around on tracks in the great outdoors carrying freight delivering people to various cities and towns throughout the world. For an example the smallest of the model trains refer to the Z scale which is the model train being 1/220ththe size of a real train. However there are miniature trains that are even smaller than this.
How To Place Model Trains
If you are indeed a collector of model trains and have a complete layout of one of the available sizes you can certainly integrate one of the world smallest model trains into the décor of your HO or other sized model trains layout. Buying one of the small model trains that may come with a hand blown glass globe to protect it amongst your model trains memorabilia is an excellent way to add some whimsy to the serious efforts you have established when setting up that splendid model railroad layout. Adding a piece of train décor that is not as serious as your beautifully displayed setup will add depth to the whole scene.
