Is it really possible to drive a car on rails?

As James Bond did in the film Octopussy? Would it work if you removed the tires? I believe in Russia where it was set they have a non-standard railway gauge - what would be an ideal gauge for a car to travel on?
So you know, I'm just curious - I'm not intending to do it - yet. I don't have a license.
John E, that's the standard gauge. Russia use something different.

Any road vehicle can be adapted to run on rails by replacing the road wheels with flanged ones.

This has been done with cars and buses in both the US, Latin America and Europe and there have also been experiments with buses that can run on both road and rail. Britain tried this in the 1930's with the London Midland and Scottish Railway Karrier Ro-Rail bus and again in the 1970's when the workers at Lucas Aerospace developed a kit for converting a road bus to road-rail operation.

The German railway Deutsche Bundesbahn (now DBAG) also experimented with a road-rail bus in the 1950's.

In the UK and elsewhere some track maintenance vehicles have been made to run on road and rail. When running on the road the rail wheels are retracted and vice-versa.
