After leaving Broome we headed south toward Port Hedland and then inland from there

With so much mining activity around here, we were now firmly ensconced in road train territory

These road trains are really massive, it’s hard to picture just how large and long they are

Ninety Eight (98) rolling tires on one 60m long behemoth! Insane. Imagine the cost to replace all your worn tires

When they overtake you it’s an impressive, if slightly scary sight. It’s good practice to indicate to them (by flashing your headlights) to tell the driver when the last of their carriages have made it past you so they can safely move back into your lane
