Fairly common here in Australia, as they are cheaper to operate than building a railway line, plus can go where trains cannot !

A real Side-tip Quad, Road-train, "only," measures 175 ft, ( 53.5 metres ) in length, and hauls a good 120 tons of material / ore, and travels at about 50mph on the open road. They do come longer,- some haul Five, Six, or even Seven trailers!!!

This 1:20 scale model is of a standard Kenworth T908 sleeper, hauling a Quad Side-tip Road-train, ( Called a," Quad," as it has four massive trailers ). and stretches an impressive 2.7 metres, ( 9ft. ) from end to end !! 1:20 scale Side-Tip Quad Road-Train.

That is one impressive size, I can imagine that you may have problems displaying it.

Derek Lane, ( & everyone else ),- The 1:20 scale side-tip Quad Road Train was custom built for a, Queenbyan, New South Wales, Australia, client who is a truckie, ( truck driver ) & loves his wooden model big rigs,- That one was his forth order he got me to build for him.

As to where he keeps them,- I have no idea.

****One 9yr old,- One Big Truck. The biggest wooden model I have made so far was for a little 9 yr old boy who has major sight problems, & wants to become a Truckie like his Grandpa, but cannot due to his disability, therefore with the kind assistance of several Aussie truckies I custom built a 1:15 scale Kenworth T908, hauling a triple Road-train completed with load, tarps, & working LED lights.

It " ONLY " measured, 3.8 metres, ( 12ft ), in length,- Got a heap of pics here so will post them here later, Added a photo of the young lad holding his very own Prime-mover, ( Truck )
