What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

About

The Littleville Railroad Kit is the world’s smallest electromagnetic toy train.

Using the latest electromagnetic propulsion technology, we have created a DIY railroad kit that is not only easy to put together, but will be fantastic activity for the whole family!

Become one of the first people to experience the world’s smallest toy train set by supporting our campaign!

Enjoy Model Trains Without Sacrifice!

Model train kits are not only delightful to put together, but also perk up your imagination and creativity. However, building a regular model train set requires you to sacrifice valuable time and space. In addition, those regular model kits are not very budget friendly.

But worry no more,

The Littleville electric train tracks are pre-assembled, leaving the fun of crafting your miniature landscape to you!

Our kits are so small, you can proudly display your creations in your living room, bedroom, kitchen, desk, office, or anywhere else! The model is about 5 inches long and 4 inches wide.

While many model kits require expensive tools and paints, Littleville kits can be assembled with just super glue and acrylic paint!

What You Will Receive in the Kit:

  • 1 Black Miniature Train Engine Car
  • 2 Silver Miniature Train Passenger Cars
  • 1 Birch Wood Base
  • 1 Electromagnetic Track (Oval Shaped)
  • 5 Miniature Buildings
  • 1 Power Cord
  • 1 Building Base
  • 1 Bag of Light Green Faux Moss
  • 1 Bag of Dark Green Faux Moss 
  • 1 Bag of Small River Stones
  • 1 Bag of Green Flocking Powder
  • 1 Bag of Fine Gravel
  • 1 Instructional Booklet 

Risks and challenges

At this stage of the project, our main challenge is to coordinate the assembly process. Littleville kits contain components sourced from all over the globe. We will work with our suppliers closely to ensure that all the proper components arrive at our California assembly facility on time.
