Were this kind of vehicles named 'Hi-Rail'. Is it a Willys Jeep?

Willys Jeep Hi-Railer, yes. I still can't find the link on it, though.

That's really just an FC-150 with railroad tires attached to it.

Gamer wrote Railroad "Tires?" :think: :p

I cannot recall the specific term in German for that (generation 40+... :mad: ), but there is one for that construction, road-vehicles with a connectable railroad-axles-set. Service-trucks for railway- and tram-companies have that, too.
The name... it's not "Draisine", because this had only railraod-wheels...

In English I think you could call it a road-railer; although this term is also used for a semi-trailer which, being fitted with flanged wheels, can form part of a railway train, Google Images has Mercedes Unimog and Land-Rover based examples.
