This category is for websites about miniature railways in the United Kingdom.
These are capable of carrying passengers, though may have only survived as recreational or tourist attractions.
In order qualify as a miniature railway, the separation of the rails must be 20 inches or less.
The website should show this gauge, commonly 15 inch gauge down to 7¼ inch,
but where may also be tracks and locomotives available for 5, 3.5 and 2.5 inch gauge.
