There are more that 400 miniature railways in Britain. Some are hidden away and privately owned, others are parkland attractions, and some - such as the Romney, Hythe and Dymchurch Railway - comprise significant operations.
They come in an array of gauges (from 5 inches up to 15 inches and sometimes greater), but there most definitive characteristic is that they can carry passengers, whether sitting astride the rolling stock or inside enclosed carriages. In this colourfully illustrated guide, David Henshaw offers a concise history of miniature railways from the nineteenth century to the modern day, including a whistle stop tour of some of the most notable examples open to the public - exploring their layouts, engineering and rolling stock.
