Just a general question about location Image:Scania V8 prime mover.jpg and Image:NH15 road train.jpg taken in the Top End, NW Western Australia or Queensland? Nice photographs and great work BTW! Bidgee (talk) 10:58, 7 December 2008 (UTC)
- arr the palm trees got me on that one! Would be nice if possible if you could photograph a whole Road Train? Just that most of the Road Train images (only one or two of them IIRC) are not really great. Bidgee (talk) 11:28, 7 December 2008 (UTC)
Tip: Categorizing images
Thanks a lot for contributing to the Wikimedia Commons! Here's a tip to make your uploads more useful: Why not add some categories to describe them? This will help more people to find and use them.
1) If you're using the UploadWizard, you can add categories to each file when you describe it. Just click "more options" for the file and add the categories which make sense:
2) You can also pick the file from your list of uploads, edit the file description page, and manually add the category code at the end of the page.
- [[Category:Category name]]
For example, if you are uploading a diagram showing the orbits of comets, you add the following code:
- [[Category:Astronomical diagrams]]
When picking categories, try to choose a specific category ("Astronomical diagrams") over a generic one ("Illustrations"). Pro-tip: The CommonSense tool can help you find the best category for your image.

Truck engines and loadings
I was wondering, based on your images, if you have a good understanding of semi engines and loadings?
I'm trying to find a good 10 to 20 page introduction to power use on semis. I can find this easily enough for cars, and I'm sure it exists for trucks as well, but I don't know enough in this field to know where to start.
I'm trying to see if there is a way I could attack the problem of understanding whether or not hybridization would help semis. With the new 16" in-wheel motors appearing, it would seem it would be relatively easy to build a 22.5" version with about 100 hp and 1000 foot pounds of torque (or more). One of these could go into every wheel, but I suspect for semi use it would be four in total, one on each side of the axles. That would be 400 hp and a whopping 4000 ft-lbs. This sounds like something would suffice to basically take all of the extra load off the engine during acceleration and hills.
