The second and third photos I posted are from the Stelvio network (two lines, 80 km in total, 18 trolleytrucks and 2 trolleybuses for workers, all with only electric motors): http://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/Filovia_dello_Stelvio

Some trolleytrucks and trolleybuses can work at full power either under the wires or by their diesel motors, some have a low power diesel motor only for emergency and some are fully electric (with batteries for very short movement in depots or completely unable to move without the wires).

Turkish trucks are reported to be seen as far north as Sweden. I always admired those truckers for enduring such a long haul. But recently I found out the truth:

They are cheating !!







Comming to the Scandinavian peninsula they also board the night ferry in Travemunde/Rostock, have dinner, a couple of beers and a smoke on deck.

So beeing a turkish trucker is probably a delight.

Plenty of Turkish Trucks in the UK .
Turkish trucks must have a large geographical spread , How far East or South do you reckon TR trucks go?

However far they can go without running into a war, I guess.

So should be around 2 yards.

I recently saw in Monfalcone station a train loaded with Turkish and Russian trucks.

Of course there are many Turkish trucks. Many people forget Turkey has a population of 74 million, only 10% less than Germany.

It's not merely a matter of population, but of a booming economy and an ever-expanding export base.

The question is how far do they drive ? If they sit in a railway waggon and then for some destinations on a ferry.

The train I saw in Austria: Rola Express is serving routes like Slovenia/Hungary-Austria, is this service because trucks have difficulties driving through the alps?

From Wikipedia, I think it explains what you want to know

Quote:
Rolling highways are mostly used for transit routes, e.g. through the Alps or from western to eastern Europe.

Austria
In Austria, rolling highways exist from Bayern via Tyrol to Italy or to Eastern Europe. Traditionally, Austria is a transit country and therefore the rolling highway is of environmental importance. In 1999, the Austrian Federal Railways (ÖBB) carried 254,000 trucks, which equals 8.5 million tons of freight (158,989 trucks in 1993). The rolling highway trains in Austria are operated by Ökombi GmbH, a division of Rail Cargo Austria the cargo division of ÖBB. There is a direct rolling highway between Salzburg and the harbour of Trieste, where the trucks arrive on ferries from Turkey. In those cases, drivers arrive by plane via Ljubljana airport, to take over the trucks.

Now I know why Istanbul is the most popular destination from Ljubljana airport. I didn't understand it, thought it would be one of Western European airports.

Or about 25 days worth of truck traffic on a single motorway in Austria such as A1. The share of rolling highways on the total trucking volume is negligible.

Interesting, turkish trucks arrive on the ferry in Trieste, then they drive onto the train which takes them to Salzburg. Not much of driving. Also they have a passengerwaggon for the truckers, so they dont have to fly. I presume the ferries are for trucks+truckers only?

Just cause they drive through Serbia doesn't mean they are going to Germany, Sweden, or anywhere else. If from Istanbul you go to Zagreb, also sure you drive through Serbia...

I can imagine there must be a reason for putting the trucks on the ferry Istanbul-Trieste and on the train Trieste-Salzburg. To transport the trucks this way must be more expensive and time consuming than letting the drivers drive the trucks. What is this reason ?

Maybe they pay the drivers less if they don't drive but are on a ferry. Or maybe they don't want to deal with customs going from Igoumenitsa to Trieste.
