You haven't seen small yet.....

Here is a T-Gauge set (1:450), the smallest commercially made model train scale.

This is one of the four cars in Nicholle's Japan Railways series 103 commuter set (Orange). I have a Blue set that is on it's way and should be here before the end of the week.
For comparison, the T-Gauge car is on top of a HP Products DMU Combine:

Here is a side by side of the car itself and of the HP DMU:

Here is the entire 4 unit train next to the HP DMU:

Here is the set itself:

For those that are curious, T-Gauge is 1:450, and the gauge is Three mm, which is where the T comes from.
Right now I am looking into using one of these sets for an amusement park in TT gauge.

I went to a show yesterday here in Atlanta and saw one of these T gauge trains running. Honestly, aside from the novelty I think they're ridiculous. They looked like bugs buzzing aimlessly around.....

They are bugs, but Nicholle wanted them, and she turned 27 today...

I'm trying! The stuff that she wanted in TT gauge ended up being a lot more than I wanted to pay for.

That, and I am not sure of her latest request: she wants me to make some TT gauge Star Trek stuff. I told her I could make the shuttle craft, but with the length of the NCC-1701 alone being 947' long (7.89 foot long model), I am unsure if I am up to that, yet!
