Lead Stories' Trendolizer has detected a surge of interest in this 2013 video of animal-lover Eugene Bostick's tractor-pulled dog train. Eugene and his brother Corky have been taking care of stray dogs on their Forth Worth farm for several years and this home-built train sure seems like a fun way to take the dogs out.

Eugene's train is quite famous in the area and got the attention of the local media as this 2014 report from the local NBC affiliate proves.
