i assume the reason for the drop axles mid-trailer is that you guys are not allowed to pull doubles? trailers like that would SCREW our bridge weight laws

We CAN pull doubles (like B-Trains) but they still limit you to 120k with a permit (steel coils only) and have a heavier empty weight so in OH and KY you can haul less with trains. The lift axles are for MI only, they don't allow any more weight in OH although you can use them if you wish. The bridge laws are stupid.

we cant make any money pulling B-trains, we have a couple sets of A-trains, but canada really doesn't like to see those, almost all our trailers are R-Tac hoppers (35 foot lead, 30 foot pup)

Yea but at least you can back up a B-train, not so easy with an A-train.

Just a guess but google says: Truck and Bus Glossary
Quote:
A-Train
"A-TRAIN" - (Slang) a truck tractor pulling more than one trailer connected by "A" dollies

"B-Train"
"B-TRAIN" - (Slang) a truck tractor pulling two semi trailers where the second trailer sits on a fifth wheel that is permanently attached and extends off the rear of the lead trailer. Most commonly used on flatbeds or tank trailers. The "B"train is considered a more stable double trailers configuration.
More like this:

But that's just a guess

Now out west like Montanna they try to make the tongue long so you can get more weight because they measure off you steer axle and the rear drive right. I drive a truck in IN and we just have pretty much set weight limits on axles not really on length.
Ive delivered some stone slingers in Bozeman and stayed out there for a couple weeks.
