3/16” scale
At 3/16” scale, a six-foot-tall person rises a mere inch and one-eighth above the ground. Can you imagine yourself in this miniaturized world?
To help bring you into this world, the S-gauge engine of an American Flyer 302 Steam Locomotive has been retrofitted with a lightweight camera typically found in drones today. This small camera gives you a first-person view from the train engineer’s seat. Those who cannot join us in person can still be a part of the fun by logging on to our website and watching the live stream footage.
