bimodal trailer

(trucking/railroads) A semi-trailer able to function as an on-road truck trailer with pneumatic tires, or, on railroad tracks with the deployment of a steel wheel rail assembly. In some cases the road tires retract to allow the trailer chassis (container) to mount on a pair of rail bogies. Also called a road-rail trailer.
