    If you are like me there is only 1 use for rail road track, which is to cut up into small pieces to be used for small anvils or ballast to keep bodies on the bottom of a lake or ocean
    Never try to tell me it can't be done

    Bicycles, handcars, and even motorcycles have been used for decades by railroads. I am curious besides the "outriggers" that engage the opposite rail, what keeps the tires on top of the rail.

    Use yes, abuse no.
