The term "Miniature Railway" tends to refer to public outdoor people-carrying small-gauge railways, usually intended as tourist attractions. The logic behind the naming is that they are "real" railways, doing a proper job of work (carrying passengers), just smaller.

A private miniature railway tends to be referred to instead as a "Garden Railway", and if the setup is a public attraction but not people-carrying, it's just a "model railway".

A number of miniature and garden railways were built by Henry Greenly and Bassett-Lowke Ltd. in the early Twentieth Century for various seaside resorts and tourist attractions, one of the most popular and famous being the Romney, Hythe and Dymchurch miniature railway.
