Revolution Rail

Revolution Rail is a commercial company offering rail pedal car rides along leased sections of otherwise unused railroad track. I visited their original location near Lake George, NY. My wife and two adult children joined me. We did this in August of 2018. Since that time the company has added a locations in Cape May, NJ and South Fork, CO. Several other companies offer similar experiences at various locations across the country. I have heard of one that operates along the giant redwoods in California. That is on my to do list.

The rail cars are either two or four seat versions. Since you are confined to the rails you can only go as fast as the lead car. You are asked to raise you hand if you slow or stop to warn the cars behind you. There were about a dozen cars on our trip. After pedaling a few miles everyone stops and stretches their legs near the river. While the customers relax and unwind, the staff use a turntable to turn the cars around for the return trip.
