Regular readers will know that I love quirky things.

I have also come across some rather amazing vehicles.

Some of them I have ridden in, others just observed.

When Family Kiwidutch was in Trier, Germany last summer, we spotted another quirky vehicle for my collection.

On this occasion, what I spot is a tourist “train’ that runs on wheels and pulls two trailers that the tourists ride on during their sight-seeing trip around the city.

In New Zealand I have seen these before in a simpler version, some with a roof and some without and they earned the nick-name the “toast-rack” due to most of them having open sides.

This one is different, more sophisticated, enclosed and of course, impersonating a train but the basic premise is the same.

It always makes me do a double take though, seeing what looks like a train …driving on the road.
