Narrow gauge railways are theoretically those gauges of track less than the standard gauge. In practice the narrow gauge is generally considered to be a gauge of three feet or less. Narrow gauge is often used for mountain railways where the narrowness of the gauge allows for tigher turning radii. Famous narrow gauge railways include the Festiniog in Wales and the Romney, Hythe and Dymchurch railway in Kent.
