That'd be in the Pilbara region of West Oz, where the trains have been as long as 7Km, (I know you all wanted to know that.)

How many locomotives are needed to get the beast rolling? About how fast do they go in open country?

I know there are 2 at the front and 2 at the rear, but I'm not sure how many pairs are in between. They have to run loco sets in between to keep all the tensions correct to prevent the trucks in the middle from wanting to fall over when negotiating curves. All the rest I don't know. I did get caught at a crossing once about 25 years ago. Hard to remember, but it would have been >30mins. I live about 1,300 miles South of there. I believe that the road goe over or under at all the crossings now.
