Here's a demonstration: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9iG0xOAgWMI&t=3m
Road vehicles can typically run parallel to the train on either side, with the track in the centre.
I like them a lot for not just in-city-transport but close proximity transport, too. Their tracks work like roads with both sides being restricted to one direction thus they are much simpler to lay.
One could also design a rail track set that uses road pavement for a foundation. While cars cannot run on these tracks, one could design them so that you can run a road on either side, but it would look like a 6-lane highway with a train in the middle... One could also use it to run tracks in place of roads through cities but still have it blend in.

In fact, one could try the opposite : doing trams with trains. I use urban rail tracks from Japanese Track Set + Urban Transit system bridge if I want it segregated, lay the tracks between 2 road lanes or segregated, and use the empty platforms from NewStations with 1 tile stations to simulate bus / tram stops. Add a little electric or diesel railcar, and you're off. I could post a picture of that if anyone is interested in the blend-in.
EDIT : Here's how well it blends in a city.
The buses are Leyland Lynx from Bobs British Buses (in BaNaNaS).
The trains are DSB S-Tog IV from 2cc TrainsInNML (in BaNaNaS).
The roads are from American Road Replacement Set (in BaNaNaS).
The rest is included above.
Personally I like how the "interurban" at the top looks. I think all we'd need are gateless level crossings.
