Marklin trains come in three gauges differentiating in size and characteristics. The three gauges are 1 Gauge, HO Gauge, and Z Gauge. 1 Gauge, slightly larger than O Gauge (1:32 scale), locomotives are impressive, featuring great attention to detail. HO Gauge is by far the most popular and successful scale (1:87) offered by Marklin. HO scale offers the largest assortment of locomotives, rolling stock and accessories. Z Gauge is the smallest scale offered by Marklin. It is very small and delicate, having a very exclusive feel and look because of its size. A small space is all you need to set up a Z gauge layout.
