This Japanese Car-cum-train is Making a Splash on Twitter
Thanks to the Japanese @hiiq195 and his impeccable documenting skills, people over the world have become acquainted with the kirikusha that he came across in Harajuku, near Tokyo via Twitter. Half way between a truck and a train, the name literally means road/rail vehicle, this strange transportation device was captured travelling along the train lines. The concept is rather practical, and super simple to use, just flip the engine ninety degrees to detach the car from the train lines.
Simple it may be, but this technology remains rare. It can however prove a useful innovation, notably for transporting materials along railroad lines, but also as a means of freeing up road space. So only one question remains… Why didn’t we think of it earlier?
