      That reminds me of Crocodile Dundee, that's not a railcar, this is a railcar. That thing is amazing.

Looks like a car or truck body was slapped onto an old diesel switcher frame.

Looks to me like an old Heisler mechanism. Whatever it is, it sure is cool!

Thank you for mentioning my Blog.

The a.m. picture is a view of a Heisler motor car stopped on a siding, and a Valley Railroad locomotive #2 with a mixed train, owned by Susquehanna Chemical Corporation, in Morrison (McKean County), Pennsylvania.  Date 1947 July 15

Google translate is wonderful. :)
After the war it went slowly downhill with the forest paths. The truck became more powerful and the operation was therefore less staff intensive. One way to use the agile chassis Heisler further found the chemical plant in Morrison Morrison, Pennsylvania.
Then come together again road and rail. Also an interesting idea for the replica in the model. Here's a picture from behind:
