Below: Photos of one of Richmond Towing big
 wreckers a W-Model Kenworth with
 Garwood  lifting gear, towing back a brocken
 down Road-Train.
We have a permit to tow the tractor and all of
 the trailers together to a place of safety, were
the tractor of the Road-Train can be replaced.
This means the nearest town or Roadhouse,
 but in the Outback back of Australia that is
 hundreds of miles...

The road train pictured, used to transport zinc- lead concentrate from MIM's McArthur River mine near Boroloola to the mine's export port at Bing Bong on the eastern gulf coast of the Northern Territory is the largest registered road train in Australia. The road train is designed to haul 150 tonnes of concentrate, is 160 m long and takes nerves of steel to overtake!Photograph by Ian Wood
