26 wheeler Road Train w/ sleeper . Here is a road train I built. Road trains are massive tractor-trucks that pull four or even five trailers at a time. They generally operate on dust trails or highways, and are most commonly found in Australia, northern Canada, and parts of the United States. To see a real road train, see pic. 21. Mine has a cabin with a sleeper, and three identical open-bed trailers, totaling 26 wheels. These trailers appear to be carrying veggies of some kind. When all trailers are linked to the tractor, the total length is 22.5 inches. The road train features visibility lights, a hood ornament, an air filter, bumper bars on the front, an "oversize load" banner, opening doors, side view mirrors, twin smokestacks, a windbreaker (in case it is carrying box-trailers), a huge front grill, a bed on the inside, and double-jointed hinges for maximum maneuverability. The LEGOŽ stickers are from set 10156 Lego Truck, and the "special transport" sticker on the windbreaker is from 7249 Mobile Crane. Please review, and thanks for looking! .
Side view of the whole thing. It is 22.5 inches long.

Cabin front angle.
Side view. My favorite part is how there are two wheels under the front fender.
Back angle. Notice the twin smokestacks.
The "oversize load" banner that I printed out from the web.
Shot of hood detail. Notice the huge front grill and the ornament.
Shot of the air filter and the Side view mirror, which has a directional light on it.
The windbreaker with the "special transport" sticker from set 7249 Mobile Crane left on it.
Shall we have a look inside (through our opening doors)?
Here is where the driver operates the truck.
The sleeper, for these missions last days on end.
A book is included in case the driver needs to read himself to sleep (even though he probably will as soon as his head touches the pillow).
Now, one of the trailers.
Back angle. Notice the good visibility lights and tail lights.
Top view only to reveal veggies.
The three identical trailers.
Here the custom hinge I used to connect everything and still provide optimum steering...
... This is because they are double-jointed.
A real road train. *jaw drops* Yes, very big.
