I'm sure it was on this very forum that pictures were posted of similar "animal" to the one in the photo. A man scratch built one on a scratch built dock in his (you guessed it!) scratch built water scene, it was a marvel of scratch building! Hand carts, I do believe, are what that is for.

Hey there's one similar to that a few miles from me.
It's for a tramway for the St Andrews Lock and Dam on the red river.
I had pictures at one time, I'll do some digging.

I saw something similar in a historical piece on a brewery that had it's own railway. Mostly almost-square flatcars and some passenger cars for 4 people.

That's actually quite a fancy one, most are just a piece of disconnected track at 90deg, with if lucky a small shed to store the handcart in. Gets manhandled on and off the track.

How about "Jigger" then, the common name in NZ (not sure 'bout Aus, have to check), otherwise, motorised ones are referred to as "Speeders"
