Henry Greenly (1876–1947) was among the leading miniature railway engineers of the 20th century, and remembered as a master of engineering design.

Greenly is known for his miniature locomotive designs. He worked closely with many engineering companies, including Bassett-Lowke and its various engineering subsidiary companies.

In 1909, along with Wenman Joseph Bassett-Lowke, Henry Greenly started and edited Model Railways and Locomotives Magazine.

He worked with Captain J. E. P. Howey on the designs for the Romney, Hythe and Dymchurch Railway in Kent, England, and served as that railway's Chief Engineer. He was also involved with innovative locomotive design work at the nearby Saltwood Miniature Railway.

Greenly established his own miniature railway engineering company Greenly Engineering Models in Hounslow, Middlesex, and his engineering design skills were well matched with the practical engineering skills of his workshop engineering manager Jock Campbell.
