Yeah, all railroads have vehicles like that. They add wheels at the front bumper so it can stay on track easier.

 

So how do they rive em? No stirring wheels, and Im guessing taking them of the rail will have to be done right on a Rail Sidewalk =X

Correct. They just use the gas and brakes, no need to steer (and probably no way to), and get on and off the rails at intersections with roads.

Yes most of the SIRT Service trucks and a few of their construction equipment are equipt with rr wheels under the front and rear bumpers for access to the sirt system and can use the switches as would a regular train as far as getting on the rr tracks there are several places were the sidings are that are level with the ground and have access to the street behind locked entrance gates.
