Peddle bikes may be the wrong phrase, but I have seen, at the Weirs, a group of folks with four wheel gasoline powered RR service carts. I imagine they have some sort of agreement and schedule coordination with the RR. What a fun hobby/pastime.

Yes me too but the video stated peddle bikes or trolleys.

So how do you pronouce Kancamagus and Pemigewasset?

Maybe we've been pronouncing it wrong for decades.

I think they should have mentioned Hart's and Poly's (they were oh so close to both).

pay up
 
Maybe Hart's and Polly's didn't buy the ad? It's a heavily commercial video. Same ad format in other areas they recorded and display on their website.

www.hoborr.com/rail-bike-adventures/ ..... something new, opening in the spring, 2021.

Down the bottom of the page there's two photos of 'rail bike adventures' which can be either two person or four person pedal railroad carts which have four railroad wheels and seats for either two or four seated riders who pedal it forward sort of like an incumbent bicycle.

A pedal railroad cart website from Essex Connecticut .... www.essexsteamtrain.com/experiences/rail-bike-2/ ... has more photos and charges $125/ 4-seat and $75/2-seat pedal cart with no discount for single riders, reservations required, and no walk-up customer riders.

With one single Winnipesaukee Scenic railroad line all the rail bike pedaling and diesel railway locomotives will need to be aware of one, another, and be moving in the same direction. ..... chugga-chugga-chugga-choo-choo-choo-pedal-pedal-pedal ....... :eek: .. :confused: .. :confused: .. :eek: ...... here comes dat train! ... dar goes dat pedal cart! .... :laugh:

In Essex Connecticut the minimum age to ride and pedal is ten years and 48" height. On the Winnipesaukee Scenic Railroad the website says the minimum age is five years with no mention about height. So, probably that will get determined through the first year pedaling this new Winni Scenic Rail Bike Adventures.
