Quite a few of these are Russian-made. Not sure what the idea behind it was, but I`m sure it was a fun experiment.

i can understand people who enjoy all kinds of vehicles for all kinds of uses but this one stumps me. its pointless useless and worthless. you can either ride it up and down some old stretch of track that is no longer used or just park it on the side of your house and forget about it cause you can never use it. maybe its just my area but you could never get clearance to use anything like that on active railroad tracks here. to many trans come thru here.

^^^ no you don`t have to steer, the steering is linked to the steel wheels. If not the vehicle would not be able to balance on the track and misalign itself and fall off. Imagine trying to balance a rubber wheeled vehicle on the tracks without the steel wheels there. You couldn`t do it no matter how well you could drive. I know a guy who used to work for the railroad.

That would suck. Exactly you can`t even turn. And if everyone had one, bad things would happen. D:

the first one, pick up truck with the railroad kit is standard in canada (well at least in my village). Railroad workers use them. No train crash as they all know the train schedule.
