Built this ,” little, ” Quad Road-Train for a NSW, Australia client last year. It, ” only,” measures 2.7 metres, ( 9ft ) from end to end x 127mm, ( 5” ) wide. A real one, is, ” only ”, 53.5 metres, ( 175ft. ) in length, and are quite common here in Australia away from the major population areas as they are heap cheaper to operate than a Railroad !!
