Some of the Delano photos taken of the CNW yard in Chicago show this sort of track, and even a few of the hand-pushed narrow guage cars.

It was not uncommon for RIP tracks to have these narrow gauge tracks for hand carts to haul materials.

Is that a narrow gauge, maybe 2 foot, track parallel to the car?  It sure appears to be flanges ways.

This photo should help with all the speculation. It is the other side of the car apparently taken at the same time. Different lighting, different results.  The car number is 12824.
