    Ive seen pictures of an old farmall used for the same thing. They put a set of rail wheels on the front of the loader and they lowered the pressure in the back tires. It was definately a more primitive version of this. This one they adapted an actual highrail setup from a truck onto it.

    my dad had a john Deere AR i believe for years that was owned by the Baltimore& Ohio RR that could be run on the tracks you had to get off an manually crank the wheels down. he sold it to a guy up in lancaster pa i still remember the rear wheels had tractor tires that were worn down in one spot from all the rail miles that poor thing had on it i imagine that thing will do the same thing just alot quicker
