"Hythe Pier Miniture Railway"
This is how it is labelled on current OS larger scale maps.
Apart from the spelling error, the railway is not a miniature railway, a term which is correctly applied to railways which run rolling stock which is scaled down from full size stock. With a gauge of 2 ft, it is properly a narrow gauge railway. This view shows the train hauling the tank wagon used to take diesel fuel to the ferry boats.
Hythe Ferry, Southampton

A passenger ferry from Southampton to Hythe, where passengers can take an electric train along the pier.
