An eighteen speed gearbox
Five hundred and fifty horsepower too.
One hundred and ten wheels.
Twenty eight axles spinning true.
It carries full a ton of fuel.
What more of this is true?
It works twenty four hours every day
It’s job is never through.
The longest trucks in the world
The Road Train Centipede.
For Australia has very few trains
So they all depend on these.
To take the iron ore many miles
And the goods from shore to shore.
The Outback roads are empty and straight
So these monster trucks can soar.
