At rallies people often ask what job the miniature engines did in the days of steam. The fact is that all the miniature engines are in fact scale models of full sized engines. Many of these have been built within the last 30 years. They are built by enthusiasts to learn or display their skills. They are referred to as 9 inch, 6 inch, 4 inch etc. This refers to the inches to the foot ratio so a 6 inch is 1:2 ratio or half scale and a 4 inch is a 1:3 ratio or third scale.
