The problem is that these are not exclusive. How do we determine which
aspect is more important?

Maybe it would make more sense to declare those that could be placed in
either category (i.e., the big miniature trains) or are overlapping in
possible usage as "narrow-gauge" and just add some attraction-specific

OTOH, I just discovered that there was a clear distinction written down
in the proposal of railway=miniature and that is the track width:
i.e., miniature == 2.5" (64mm) to 3.5' (1067mm)

Kind regards/Mit freundlichen Grüßen, Stefan Tauner
