My recollection of "gearhead" is that it referred to someone who was into
automobiles, mechanically speaking, maybe even specially racing cars.
Also, there are "Deadheads" in the non-railroad sense, for the followers of
the Grateful Dead, although I assume, with the demise of Garcia, they may
finally be, literally, a dying breed.
