There's a hell of a lot of axles on these babies but the trailers look so small. The mineral salt's they cart must be bloody heavy. I'm told they cost around $1 000 000 per unit.

That's a pretty shot, & it's nice to see someone else shoot a big tractor occasionally. When someone says they want a "proper exposure", I can point them here! :D

Thats OZ for you. I think the long ones are around 8 cars long? Crazy. I would not want to be in front of that.

Normally the longer ones have 8 trailers to pull instead of 3. Massive things.

A four trailer unit passed me on the Stuart Highway north of the Three Ways last year. I was sitting on a 140kph and he went passed me like I was in reverse. The thing I will always remember is that when he fully passed me, verged in and straightened the train up, it looked like an out of control Hawian Hula Dancer, took it a while to settle all the trailers back down.....quiet a sight!
