* On ''Videogame/{{Subnautica}}'', the player has the capacity to construct the ''Cyclops''-class submarine, which is large enough to hangar a mini-sub and multiple closets for holding resources and equipment, plus Constructers and Equipment Tables for on-the-move creation and upgrading of said equipment.

It even has a little free space for the player to make a cabin, a workshop or even a small garden.

* Another non-militarized example in the [=iOS=] interactive fiction ''[[VideoGame/EightyDays 80 Days]]'' with the entire city of Agra. Basically, imagine the Taj Mahal on several massive {{Steam Punk}}ish legs periodically walking throughout India. It's even mentioned that the political status of the city is being contested, as the Brits claim that it's part of UsefulNotes/TheRaj, while the rest of the peninsula claims that, since Agra sometimes wonders into their territory, it can't be a British holding. In-game, it actually counts as a mode of transportation on one particular route. On the top, you have the gardens and the majesty of the Taj Mahal. Below decks, you have the steaming and clanging underbelly where thousands of multicultural workers live and work, ensuring the safe operation of the walking city (naturally, lots of big levers and valves).

* Almost every entry in the ''Franchise/AssassinsCreed'' series features at least one main base where the assassins Brotherhood keeps their arsenal, armors, coordinates their members and trains their recruits-- in ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedSyndicate'', rather than use a building, the Frye twins take over an enemy gang's private *train* as their base of operations. "Bertha" serves as a hideout, living quarters, even letting the player upgrade their gang and collect tax money from within. It also runs around London of course.

* From ''[[ANewHope Star Wars IV: A New Hope]]'', the sandcrawlers that the Jawas tooled around in were bases on tracks. To a lesser extent, the Imperial AT-[=ATs=]. They were basically large troop-carrying assault guns, but various depictions showed them being capable of carrying speeders similar to the ones seen in ''Return of the Jedi''.

Added DiffLines:

* Jack's Kirby's [[Comicbook/NewGods Fourth World]] series -- in particular, his early run on ''ComicBook/JimmyOlsen'' -- featured the "Mountain of Judgement", a mobile home for the Hairies, a bunch of genetically modified young humans (and since it was the early 70s, they all had long hair, hence the name). The Mountain was supposedly converted from an old NASA missile crawler (that used to be used for Saturn Vs?) and had been seriously suped-up by the super-intelligent Hairies and a good dose of Kirby Tech. It spent its time roaring around (at extremely high speeds -- none of this 1 mph nonsense) the Zoomway, a private... well, miles-long racetrack is the only equivalent that comes to mind, giving off SFX of all sorts to discourage any curiosity on the part of the local commune of bikers in the Wild Area. The Mountain's outer shell made it look like some kind of giant monster on wheels, which helped add to the mystery surrounding it.

* ''MarvelUltimateAlliance'' featured the Omega Base, a giant military research station on tracks operated by S.H.I.E.L.D. The only plot reason it was on tracks was to have the villains hijack it and send it towards an hydroelectric dam.

* ''Anime/SpeedRacer: The Movie'' had Cruncher Block hanging out in the well-furnished (complete with piranha tank) back of a big red truck. This is possibly a ShoutOut to the Mammoth Car from the original cartoon, which blurred the line between CoolCar and ''CoolTrain''.
