Saw about 50 tiny railcars go by the place we were camping. All kinds -- two seaters, 4 seaters, even one with "facilities". I posted about them here, with pictures. Moms, dads, kids and pets ... rv'in on rails
There are speeder enthusiast clubs across America. Most were bought from RR's as surplus. Very few Railroads still use that type of equipment, now they use what is known as a Hy-Rail vehicle, basically a pickup truck type vehicle, witih special rail wheels installed that allow it to be operated on rail, or on road. Frankly, I don't get it, but then, I bet I have some hobbies that they wouldn't understand either!

My work tow vehicle is a group of 16 cylinder General Motors diesels rated to tow around 14,000 TONS. I don't need no weight police!
Probably a NARCOA (North American Rail Car Owners Association) sponsered ride. Good group & good fun. Have to pass an operator's test and have required safety equipment in your car. No alcohol when on railroad property. There have been trips on almost every railroad in the country. Mostly stay in motels and eat meals (except lunch) in nice resturants. Been on many trips with them including four trips on the Algoma Central in Ontario and one 10 day trip in Manitoba clear up to Churchill. Never really had a bad trip although leaving Churchill on July Fourth it was rainy with some snow flurries mixed in and temperature of 34 F.
