* Creator/{{Sega}}'s ArcadeGame ''Magical Truck Adventure'' is all about this; two plucky kids try to get a magic stone that can transport people between dimensions away from a pair of crooks, and the two groups end up chasing each other in handcars through various other dimensions(all of which inexplicably have train tracks) as they try to get their hands on the stone. The game even comes with custom handcar pump controls.

to:

* One of the films with the [[Film/OlsenBanden Olsen Gang]] wreaks havoc to the Danish railway system. While technically not using a handcar, the scene with the unexpected Intercity (luckily on the neighbor rails, unluckily not from the direction expected) clearly is a nod to this trope.


Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/AlvinAndTheChipmunks'' has a bit of deconstruction thrown in. Of course the handcar has to flee from a train sooner or later, but in the end everything, train, handcar, railway, keels over as it was just cardboard backdrop.
