Looks like the low slung Steinwinter tractor-trailer, featured in the Highwayman TV series in the 80's...

It's an interesting retrofit solution for the existing 5-th wheel trailer fleet, though I would have expected a better windbreak in front of the trailer front end.

Interesting, and there is some history of deployment with trams based on the commanded live wire technique, but it still feels a little sketchy during poor weather and unusual situations.
