The second picture down is one I took. You'd know a bit about that sub if you took a look at the picture next to it:

Awesome. I've always wanted my own submarine... even if it could only go down less than 100 feet. Would still be soooo cool.

Wow, these are really neat. I always dreamed of having my own, personal submarine (although on a slightly larger scale).

There was a NOVA episode about a man who built not only the largest private submarine, but THE only submarine to feature a glass window at the cock pit.
It was based off the Nautilus, and they went through hell making it. Rather reminiscent of some of the machines from Myst/Riven, really.

That second photograph makes me think of a certain "Mazerunner" device. :)

I wonder if there has ever been a submarine on rails, like an underwater cablecar.

Keen! I love small, personal subs. The Imperial War Museum actually had two of them (one British and one German) from WWII when we went last month.
I think an underwater sub on rails like a train track doesn't really make much practical sense (overcoming the fluid issues underwater might require considerably more energy than for a buoyant craft, and then you'd have to lay all that track.
