Hi Leo, as you guessed both trucks are Ivecos owned by Patricks, if you noticed the front one has a 4 axle A trailer and a three axle B trailer
they only use these around the port area of Melbourne from the depot to the ship

if you click on this link it shows a two trailer roadtrain that works around the dock area in Melbourne as well

Hello Terry,

Many thanks for your info and the link for the video!!!!! :) :) :)

Via "Google" and "Patrick Logistics" I found a very nice picture of a "full-rig"!!!!!
(From "Iveco-Australia", there is also a "thumbnail" with 4 trucks to "see", but I can't "open" it!!!!! (Indonesian-site))

There are 6 Iveco's in the "100 prime-movers big fleet" of "Patrick", 3 day-cab and 3 sleeper cab-versions, all working as lcv's!!!!!
I "found out" that they also have "Scania's"!!!!!

Do you know if they have more "brands" running??

As "model-builder/collector" of trucks and trains, I found on a "modelbuildingshow" in Dortmund,Germany 2 different "train-engines" from "Australia" (1/87-scale, a "PN-Class" and a "CV40-9i", both in "Pacific-National" colors) and I am planning now to build a diorama (2,50 mtr x 1,25mtr) with them!!!!!
("Based" on the "found" pictures of the "container-terminal"!!!!!)
And "of course" combinated with the "trucks"!!!!! ;) ;) ;)

Take care of yourself and "keep on trucking" in "down-under"!!!!!

Hi Leo, glad to be of help, Patricks run a fleet of different trucks, from small straight trucks right through to triple roadtrains carrying cars to Darwin
try these two links Leo you might get some ideas for more models ;)
