Hand Cars

A hand car, also known as a pump car, is a human powered track vehicle used by  railroad workers in the job of inspecting and maintaining the right-of-way. Because of their low weight and small size, they can be put on and taken off the rails at any place, allowing trains to pass.  Hand cars are no longer used by railroads.
