On a trip through Colorado & Wyoming I found a Bison ranch that uses a standard gauge RR to shuttle tourists out to see the Buffalo. The railroad is interstate as it leaves Wyoming for a short time, goes through Colorado and loops back to Wyoming. The cars and engines use V6 Chevy powerplants and travel at a walking pace out to the Buffalo. Once out there you can feed them out the windows and door. I wouldn't have believed it if I hadn't done it myself.  
 
This is what I rode on. It is a single car that is Chevy powered. The insignia is on the front! Notice the right turn signal... I was told it was at one time an old Union Pacific MOW car. The entrance is a regular house door with vinyl replacement window and wooden bench seats.

Some of the other homebuilt cars and motive power. During the tourist season they run two car trains every hour to see the buffalo.
