You will find them in Australia as well. I think they are called the Road train or something like that.

That's neat! Being in Ontario, we aren't used to seeing too many double trailers. It was only recently that Ontario is now allowing a pilot project to allow for two 53' trailers to be hauled in a train. The only 2 companies I've seen doing it so far here are, Canadian Tire, and Hostess/Frito Lay. I know Sysco hauls double trailers, but their trailers are much shorter. Loblaw is looking into trying it out. It would sure come in handy for those runs from Irving Tissue, and Atlantic Packaging.

Do you happen to remember which companies you've seen? I drive the 401 daily, and have only seen what I have posted so far. The Hostess/Frito Lay train I saw was actually traveling along the 407! No wonder their chips are so expensive! :D

A couple of images of an older International Cabover Truck taken in Lethbridge, Alberta a few days ago. Not many left like this one anymore. Getting rare to see one still in use like this one:

Nice! I love the Sisco truck trailers with the silversides look!

Here's a very nice recording of a Kenworth with 13 speeds and a Detroit Diesel two cycle diesel engine. It's either a 8V71 or a 12V71 engine, but not sure.

If you like the old Sisco look get your pics now they change the scheme yet again
