These pages of Photos are of Australian Road-
Trains most of them I have taken by my self,
 plus some text.
The Australian Road-Train has 3 or
more trailers and is 53 metres long(about 3
 feet to 1 metre) and hauls 115 tons each.
 
Look out for the super Road-Train that has 7
 trailers and hauls 190 ton.

Above: The white reflectors are high on the
 front on the truck so at night the cars heading
 towards you can tell that you are a truck and
then they can give you more of the road.

The stone gard over the windsheld is to stop
 stones smashing the windsheld, plus if the
 truck you are following blows a re-tread tyre
 it is like a bomb going off smashing the
 windsheld.
The Bull-bar is needed because in the vast
 Outback of Australia the cattle station
 (Ranches) are so big, hunderds of square
 miles each of them and a lot of them do not
 have fencing. So it is not unusual to find cattle
 or sheep on the main highway.

The cow-catcher on the bottom of the Bull-bar
 is to stop the cattle or what ever from going
 under your truck and rolling your truck
 over...

Above:this Mack three trailer Road-Train is a
 beef cattle transporter,they haul cattle from
 the cattle station(Ranches) all over the
 Outback hundreds of miles to the port of
 Darwin for shipment all over the world...

Above: this photo gives you a good look at the
 length of our Road-Train over one hundred
 ton,they are what is called self tracking each
 trailer follows the previous one.
 
You mite be surprised that you can turn in the
 city at a set of traffic lights just a normal
 truck,but there hard to stop at speed...

Above: I took this photo from the banks of the
 Adelaide river the Adelaide river is about fifty
 miles from the city of Darwin, this is the
 tropical north of Australia.
 
were the rivers are still natural flowing
rivers,the water is half salt and half fresh.
 
So you have both fresh water Crocodiles and
 salt water Crocodiles in the same river,so you
 may ask what is the different a fresh water
 crocodile will eat your pet dog but the salt
 water crocodile will eat you (No joke)...
