Hier, vous avez pensé que vous aviez vu tout


Puisque nous vous montrons nos road-trains australiens, voici un 34 train de route de caravane.
Je n'ai aucune idée comment ils peuvent conduire autour d'un coin.
En Australie, nous avons toutes les choses et dans toutes les tailles. Il y a quelque chose pour chacun dans la terre large et brune.

Since we are showing you our Australian Road trains, here is a 34 trailer road train. I have no idea how they can drive around a corner.
In Australia, we have all things and in all sizes. There is something for everyone in the wide, brown land.

Je suis impressionné comment peux t il tourné à 90 °.

Le moteur est de combien de chevaux ?

I wonder if it is possible to unhook the last trailer whilst it is in motion. The driver would be too far ahead to do anything about it

Not sure where this amazing photo was taken but it sure reminds me of my home town.

I was born in Western Qld and yes "you can take the girl out of the country but you can't take the country out of the girl" - I still smell like gum leaves even up here in the hibiscus!!!!

Bergson,
Je demanderai au Herr Schaussengraben. Il saura la réponse. Je crois qu'elle pourrait être 1000?
Comment peux t il tourné à 90 °. Mon Dieu - crikey ! Nous demanderons aux Allemands.

M. homme de gail,
At 120 kilometres / hour, it poses an interesting challenge. Let's hope the beer is in the last trailer !

Jules,
Hard to tell the difference between this landscape and Rabaul? - apart from a few obvious things !

Here is a link that shows the Guiness World record road train. It has 112 trailers.
Thanks to Herr Schaussegraben !

A record road train - I suspect it didn't go very far, but impressive nevertheless!!!

Mon ami a photographié des roads trains, mais pas aussi longs, j'en mettrait dans mon blog bientôt. Mais les routes sont si grandes et si droites qu'ils n'ont pas besoin de tourner à 90°. Ce ne sont pas les petites routes tortueuses de notre petite France!!

Well you know what I was expecting to see when I scrolled down! I can sell you something far more effective, but it wouldn't make for as interesting a photo!!

Just shows there's room for ALSTOM in the Wide, Brown Land, Michael !

I wouldn't want to try and cross the road while that was going through.

Are there railroad-type crossings at intersections, if there are any intersections in the paths of these giants? You know, with the barriers and the flashing lights?
