On theone hand they do look odd, on the other hand, they are perfect for coal docks and the like.

"Remarks & Notes
These little machines are Field Pushers and Pig Pushers. Operated by longshoremen, they move on a narrow gauge track adjacent to the rail yard tracks. These machines are used to move loaded coal cars , two at a time, from the "buck yard" to the barney pit where the cars are then pushed up an incline to the rotary car dumper."
