Now these road trains ONLY travel on purpose built haul roads in the Pilbara North of Australia, carting iron ore from various mine sites to drop off points to be loaded onto trains which then gets taken to the nearest ports which then get loaded onto ships.

Road Train ( imagine the horse power in that's in that gargantuan truck ? ) The truck driver uncoupled the 'carriages' and his only speed limit on a track at the weekend off time, is how much pressure the tyres can take ‼️✅

Now, thats a fucking long load. 2 decks per trailer, and most drivers only put around 30 cattle per deck. So in this case, there would be roughly 240 or so cattle.
