A few weeks ago I thought I saw a Nace civil engineering road train configuration tipper on the M7. I saw it again today on the 7 at a distance, but it’s definitely a semi trailer with a ringfeeder, and a dolly semi tipper behind it. I know I’m not seeing things, has anyone else seen it. It’s definitely not a B double.

I've seen a bunch of pocket road trains on Pennant Hills road over the last 18 months. obviously before the tunnel opened.

My wife rolls her eyes when I point them out to her. If it was a Border Collie she would be all attention!

Overnite. They're a PBS combination know as an A Double 30Metre OAL (as appose to 36.5Metre OAL for a Full Type 1 Roadtrain) provided you jump through all the PBS Hoops you can go anywhere a B Double can...

Matt Wood photo. Linfox has a few of these Volvo road trains carting coal from Westcliff Colliery near Appin NSW to Pt Kembla.

I think that this might only be correct for NSW, at last check with authorities in VIC I would still have to apply for each route and there is guarante of getting approval

This was only maybe at the most months ago

I pulled up beside one of Linfox's Volvo roadtrains at Pt Kembla yesterday and on the trailers left side hub caps had a warning sign about the wheel nuts being left hand thread. How did the older generation survive without having everything labelled.

A lot of new trucks have a series of pictures beside the door showing how to get in and out.
