    I usually don't take up space with pics and totally non tech stuff, but found out not a lot of people know about these. I think they are cool and way more likely to cause a hearta attack than this [​IMG]

    That isn't a freight train, it is a road train.More pics of road trains and a little back ground on them too.

    Pauls C-120 has a 140 tonne GCM rating, and

    is powered by a 600 hp Caterpillar C-16

    through an 18 speed Eaton gearbox

    Not everything has to be Cummins powered to make it good. /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif

    I think you forgot to look at the pictures. He is basically saying these Hot Shotters don't have D#ick on these road trains in Australia. CLick his link at the bottom of his post to see what I am talking about.
