Road trains are an amazing sight. You have to have seen one to believe the size of this huge thing.

Overtaking one is quite an experience!

I was fortunate enough to visit Australia 2 years ago and saw some of them. Huge is an understatement!

Love the colours.

What an enormous beast, Jean-Noel, you'd need a long straight stretch to chance overtaking this vehicle Smile. Well captured. Carol

Fortunately their roads are very long and very straight in places, and I found Aussie drivers were very considerate in pulling over or slowing down to allow overtakes.

Excellent perspective on this J-N, emphasise the size perfectly, and lovely saturated colour.

As you say Jean-Noel a very impressive sight, I wouldn't want to try and overtake one on the roads of the UK.

I've heard about them and read about them but nothing would prepare you for the length of this vehicle with all those axils!

Good Grief...! That thing's vast. I should think it must be pretty difficult to judge how much space you need in order to get past. One heck of a photo.
