About N Scale Trains
“N” Scale model trains get their name from the rails they run on, which are spaced nine millimeters apart. N scale model trains are about half the size of the more common “H.O.” (half “O”) scale model trains, and only a quarter of the size of the Lionel “O” scale type model trains.
The smaller N Scale model trains allow greater amounts of scenery to be created for a more true-to-life look. Smaller, more portable layouts are easily created with N Scale, and much longer model trains are possible than in most other model train scales
