The first one is great to get off the track if you get surprised by a train. The second one is a bail off and watch the train destroy it. I wouldn't try to take it off unless the train was quite a ways away.

The Newport and Narragansett Bay Railroad Co. in Rhode Island has something has something very similar, except it’s got 4 wheels, me and casey were gonna ride it but it was sweltering hot so we rode the RDC’s instead…
