Ron Grant has spent a lot of time restoring an Intercolonial Railway velocipede he purchased. What's a velocipede, you ask?
That's a velocipede. It's a rail vehicle you pedal, or pump, to roll along the tracks. They were used in the early days of railroading to take maintenance workers to different places. It is obviously a one-person vehicle, and requires a fair bit of effort to use.
I've used the velocipede at the New Brunswick Railway Museum. It is a hand-operated version and it reminds me of a rowing machine.
