A real technical curiosity can be found at the Rimutaka Incline Heritage Railway Trust's workshop nearby Maymorn station in NZ. This is a piece of track from a Fell railway system, which was used at the steepest part of Rimutaka Incline between 1878 and 1955. The 1067mm gauge is also equipped with a third rail in the middle, providing extra traction and braking. The last remaining Fell steam locomotive H199 is now displayed in Featherston, the other end of the former incline.

Playing around with the (then) newly bought 500mm mirror lens in 2014. Note how wavy the rails seem from this distance.

There are several trolleys like this being pushed by homeless people in all over Manila, assisting the slightly insufficient regular suburban train traffic. Although these trolleys use the same tracks as the regular train traffic, the chances of collision are quite low, since the tracks don't allow higher speeds and the trains can already be heard from the distance. The service costs 10-20 PHP, but there are no fixed routes, the destinations are "on-demand".
