Ok so, this would never be allowed in England for health and safety issues I'm sure, but go and do it anyway and have weird fun. In England, we reopen old railway lines with steam engines and sit on them drinking tea and eating cake....More

Velorail is a great idea - a way of keeping lines open and servicable and a tourist attraction all in one. Be aware that the outward trip on the short run is 75% uphill and hard work. The payoff is that you can let fitter...More
