A ridable miniature railway (US: 'riding railroad' or grand scale railroad ) is a ground-level, large scale model railway that hauls passengers using locomotives that are models of full-sized railway locomotives (powered by diesel or petrol engines, live steam engines or electric motors ).

Typically miniature railways have a rail track gauge between 5 in ( 127 mm ) and 18 in ( 457 mm ), though both larger and smaller gauges are used. These large model railroads are most often seen in urban parks or in commercial settings, such as amusement park rides .

At gauges of 5 in ( 127 mm ) and less, the track is commonly raised above ground level. Flat cars are arranged with foot boards so that driver and passengers sit astride the track. The track is often multi-gauged, to accommodate 5 in ( 127 mm ), 3   1 ⁄ 2  in ( 89 mm ), and sometimes 2   1 ⁄ 2  in ( 64 mm ) gauge locomotives.

While promoting his new album, Rod Stewart has revealed a hobby that doesn't quite align with his leopard-print trousers or the excitement of his hard-partying youth. The 70-year old rocker enjoys building and playing with model railways.

Admitting that he always books two hotel rooms (one for himself and one for his trains) Stewart also revealed that the track at his Beverly Hills mansion rivals the area of a regulation size tennis court – which, at over 20 metres long, is a lot of track.

It's easy to mock model railway enthusiasts as the dull cousin of train spotters, but the truth is that attics and spare rooms across the nation are filled with small buildings and model engines. So what is it about the guilty pleasure of building tiny tracks and watching tiny trains zip around them that is so appealing?

The station is tiny, with just two platforms and four tracks, and has a small ticket office located in the main entrance, a bar to the left, and a newsstand (which offers luggage storage) and waiting area to the right. There is a public restroom along the first platform to the left past the bar.

Manfredi Suite is hidden on Rome’s Via Margutta, an exclusive side street once known as a haven for artists. Now a most desired Roman address, the area is quietly chic, with posh family homes and exclusive shops.

This luxury boutique property puts an emphasis on design, with dramatic views of the city crowding every soaring window; the rooms are cleverly designed to look outward.
