they drive the trucks up onto the flat wagons.

If the trucks are electric they could switch to powering an appropriate railway loco instead, more efficient and less wear and tear than road travel... and then recharge when the train gets into cities..  it'll happen tomorrow hahaha  

In fact the desert is ideal for large solar farms, recharging swappable electric truck batteries. I bet the govt comes up with standard battery formats next week
