Converted railway trolleys with 4 seats and cycling pedals. 5km uphill and then back again. 2 people pedal but you still need to be fit. Base Station has a nice picnic and barbecue area.

My partner, dog and I arrived at Rando Rail on a Sunday morning. I was pleased that dogs were allowed but we didn't realize two people are required to cycle for the rail cart to move optimally. This left our dog in the unsecured hammock...More
