    B Triples are classed as roadtrains in WA and Long Vehicles in SA so the guys have to change the signs at the border. And the 6 trailer Double B Triples and Triple B Doubles up north are definately roadtrains!

    Why are some of these trucks showing 'LONG VEHICLE'? They look clearly too long to get away with that…In western Australia anything over 30 meters must display 'ROAD TRAIN', that's why some companies like Boral keep some of their trucks just under 30m , so they can run as a long vehicle and use roads they wouldn't normally be permitted to use.
    Excellent display of trucks, thanks for posting.

    Thanks, but I clearly remember Boral shortening a lime tanker that displayed 'ROAD TRAIN' to under 30m so they could use 'LONG VEHICLE' plates, then they could go through pinjarra town to get to Alcoa in the shortest distance, it weighed 91 ton , 63 ton payload, 12 axels, this was concessional loaded with permits. Was there another reason they shortened it to under 30m??? Please comment and thanks again for replying.

    Yes I totally agree, Boral do use pocket trains to transport lime from Cockburn cement to Kwinana, pinjarra and wagerup, I remember about 5 years ago I saw one run over the top of a car by kwinana beach, i do remember it being refered to as a 'pocket train'. Thanks for your reply.
