Several European countries have recently tested long road combinations before implementing the concept on their national networks. European road authorities have agreed on a maximum length (25.25 metres) and weight (60 tonnes), enabling three 20' maritime containers (or 1x20' + 1x40') to be carried by a single LHV (for Longer Heavy Vehicle).

The D Tec proposal (Dutch trailers construction company) tested in Holland by Bon Trans BV:





Scania R500 6x2/tractor and D Tec Eco Combi 1+2+1+3-axle trailers/semi-trailers assembly, loaded with 3x20' containers. The whole is a Tekno model.

Guy: I love intermodal haulers. Do you have any ISO bulktainers? Those are great looking with their many different graphics. Craig

Guy the last two containers, how difficult is that to turn with the four axels and 40’ of container fully loaded?

Quinella,

I think that I have a few ISO bulktainers, already displayed in this topic: one is a Lion Toys ( Van Hool container, no specific livery), another one is a Corgi (Bulmers Dennison 3-axle semi-trailer carrying a UCB Bulk 40' container), the 3rd one is a basic Tekno (LAG 40' container on LAG 3-axle semi-trailer):







Exkvate3140,

The rear D Tec 1+3 semi-trailer has front and rear steerable axles, so there shouldn't be any driving problem. See the D Tec link: https://www.d-tec.nl/nieuw-combitrailer-s-line-ct-411-s/itm/77185
The rear 3-axle dolly has its front bar inserted and pinned to the front 1-axle semi-trailer and this becomes a 4-axle unit with 2 steerable axles.

I hope it helps.

Guy thanks for the response, the steerable axles answer my question. Thanks for the link also.

Work in progress on a seventies German transport:

Guy your load on the last set of pictures is very innovative, it looks like something you would see in a huge manufacturing plant. I like the way you recycle.

Exkvate3140,

Many thanks for your positive comments.

Here-below another "recycling exercise" with a broken-down swimming pool cleaning robot electrical engine housing modified into a steel plant fumes cooler/dust removal unit built by CMP in Arles (South of France). The unit weight is 112 tonnes with 8.5 tonnes additional for the transport skid:

That is so clever. Looks like a real heavy piece of equipment. What did you use to crib it? CAW

Quinella,

I had that housing for some time and didn't know what to do with it.
One day, looking at some steel plant pictures and associated mechanical drawings, I found that it could be easily turned into a credible fumes cooler/dust removal unit. I added a temporary flange on bottom fumes entry, water spraying ramp on its side, water drainage pipe and flanged rectangular fumes exit at the top. A few pipes and 2 manholes completed the unit. A homemade support craddle to carry it on its side. completed the model.

CMP have large construction facilities in Arles, where they build all sorts of pressure vessels for the oil and gas industry and equipment for neighboring Fos-sur-Mer steel plants and industries. Istrans being often contracted by CMP to move their products, I just had to get a WSI Istrans MAN tow truck to move it on one of their Goldhofer modular trailer (Istrans towed equipment is normally red, but they bought blue modules as well and put them directly to work, hence the mix).
The rest is just imagination.

Regards.
Guy

Guy that looks great as a load and your add on manholes and piping add to the realism of the model. This would be something your very familiar with as you said you worked in the oil and gas industry. That’s where the details come in as you worked around these types of machines (if that is the proper term) in person.
