Un­i­mog at work

Herald Sun - Motoring - - Big Wheels -

IS IT a truck or a train? That is a rel­e­vant ques­tion about a Un­i­mog, the go-any­where Mercedes truck that is ca­pa­ble of dou­bling as a lo­co­mo­tive. A Un­i­mog truck is at work in a rail tun­nel on the San Bernar­dio Pass in the Swiss Alps, shunt­ing a 40m con­struc­tion train weigh­ing 60 tonnes. The train car­ries a con­crete mixer, com­pres­sors and a full load of con­struc­tion gear.
