I believe Linfox steering wheel attendants and mechanics, would need all the help and signs that they can get. If they can read that is.

Was talking to my neighbour yesterday before he took off about these things and he said they are not allowed into Sydney itself and have to go back to a B Double at Pheasants Nest.

I've seen tippers on Pennant Hills Road.

And yes I do know what a Pocket Road Train looks like.

We're not allowed to call them road train, or the city folk will get scared. Call them A doubles and they won't notice the second trailer. Even the signage simply states LONG VEHICLE.

A doubles are limited to 30Metre overall length(& can go anywhere a B double can). Whereas a Full Type one Roadtrain is 36.5 metres long & Limited to Roadtrain Routes..

Heard that they were considering running triples up n down the Pacific Track Syney - Brisbane. Well the road is good enough for it.
Saw mtriples running through Coonabarabran when up there earlier this year. We watched them as they negotiated the small round about around the clock tower in the middle of an interesection. All the trailers followed the exact track the prime mower took. None went off line or near kerbs or clock. It was great to watch.
