Truck Thinks It's a Train in Russia [Video]
text size: A- A+
We don’t really know if that story is 100% true. But we do know that rather than making a dedicated diesel train locomotive with a big crew cabin that they could use for servicing duties, somebody in Russia had the bright idea of using a regular old crew truck. So now this thing can do too things - drive on the road and run on rails, but neither in a very efficient way.
We’ve seen this before in Romania, with a van that can do the same thing and also pivot to turn back.

I'd believe this story, if the truck was towing a bunch of freight cars, but work and inspection vehicles are common in the U.S., that have dual purposes.
