Train Car

How did people get train cars on properties far away from train tracks?

In parts of the Mojave desert (I've seen them in areas around the BNSF railroad running through Southern California) one sees a lot of train cars sitting in peoples yards, behind businesses, etc. How did these get where they are, sometimes six to ten miles from the nearest tracks? Anyone have a clue?

Both previous answers are correct, that's how I've seen it done at a railroad museum whose link appears here>> http://www.nhvry.org.
