Two-foot narrow-gauge is defined as the distance of two feet, 24 inches, or 610mm, between the rails. Railroads based on that gauge can be found all over the world; in the U.S., Canada, Australia, South Africa, Wales, etc. Nearly every state in the U.S. has or had two-foot gauge railroads, mostly in tourist or park locations.
