Where is the distinction between highrailer and roadable locomotive?

This beast was built by the Pennsylvania RR to switch the docks in Philadelphia. Gasoline engine, ships tiller steering wheel, solid rubber tires.

  Later converted to pneumatic tires. No rail gear, because all trackage in the area was in street, or other paved area
