Back in 1995, the rails south of Owen Sound, Ontario, Canada were torn up. I and a few friends rode a jigger for about 40 miles on the day before crews removed the rails. One of those lifetime memories. We had to lift the jigger over several roads that we crossed due to asphalt blocking the rails. Picture is of a similar jigger, hand powered.

That looks like a lot of fun.  I would love to do that!  Maybe add a larger gas tank.

LOL.  JB, when you get to the "party barrel" level with fries and extra gravy (coleslaw declined) you will know you've reached the pinnacle.

The beauty of these small rigs of course is that they can be carried around blockages fairly easily.  It looks like great fun....even the high bridges.
