Use railway=narrow_gauge for passenger or freight trains on narrower tracks than the typical gauge considered for the country or a railway network, often tourist routes or mine railways. This implies that it is a less common value than railway=rail.
You are highly encouraged to use gauge=* to specify the actual track width of rails. If you don't know the exact gauge, just use gauge=narrow.
Narrow gauge railways can have mainline railway service like the Rhaetian Railway in Switzerland or can be a small light industrial railway.
For small railways in parks which are tourist attractions and they are not part of a railway network, consider the usage of railway=miniature.
