Stefan must have taken a trip to the mainland in the early 1980s as these were in the collection too and I know they are not Tasmanian.

Moving away from Kenworths for a while here we have a series of Freightliner log trucks for Ken Padgett.

Bicheno Carriers LNT9000 powered by a 350 Cummins, this mainly ran from Launceston to the east coast town of Bicheno

Now I can remember working on this Sterling but cannot remember who's it was

This truck was a US import for a feedlot here. for some reason a lot of the feedlots around here liked to import full trucks with purpose built bodies to run around their farms.

Just for you Charlie ... I've jumped ahead to the LNT Fords ;)

A rather rough looking trade in ... LNT8000 3208 Caterpillar at between 175 and 210 HP, RT613 SLHD @ 6.16 on RT340 Hendrickson .... the basic spec here for the little 8000 models

A little LN7000 tray truck ... usually 3208 Cat at 165-175hp, 5 speed and 2 speed diff

A trade in LNT8000 that was originally used as a concrete agitator for Readymix who had pink trucks to make them stand out

stefan189 by werkhorse, on Flickr

An early built LNT9000 possibly V903 Cummins powered, note the square tanks ... these were phased out for round aluminium tanks in about 1980 ... All Fired Up ... with nowhere to go  :o
stefan190 by werkhorse, on Flickr

LNT7000 trade in

stefan191 by werkhorse, on Flickr

A rather well looked after LN7000, note the extra plates on the front ... Tasmania was unique in Australia in having an area system where a truck could only work in one registered area. This was to limit the use of trucks and force freight into rail ... but as usual when the rail couldn't handle the freight that relaxed the rules and let trucks to the work. That is Stefan standing off to the side.

An Australian built Atkinson 4870. y the mid 1970s Atkinson was owned by International Harvester and from the beginning of the 1980s they shared the basic cab structure with the International T2670. These three photos show how this particular truck was traded then modified and finally sold by Stefan.

Staying with the Atkinson brand I thought I would show the previous models they produced here in Australia. The original Atkinsons here in the 1950s/60s were almost exactly the same as the British versions....along the lines of the Atkinson Borderer in England.
Then we got the first of what some call the Skippy cab made by Reinforced Plastics here.

While there were a lot of smaller modifications over the years these photos show the very basic cab styles up to 1980s
The original style ... this truck was once a line haul truck around the state and ended its life as a muck hauler at a local feedlot
stefan47 by werkhorse, on Flickr

the a slightly taller version of the cab was made shown here on a truck that Stefan must have been looking to possible restore or wreck for parts
stefan51 by werkhorse, on Flickr

And the last Reinforced Plastic cab style which was made under International's ownership ... known as the 3870. Owned by Malcolm Reid of Irishtown in the far North West who carted livestock with it

A TK2670 by International. the same basic cab structure used on the 4870 Atkinson although the Atkinson was almost exclusively a sleeper cab with the T line having the sleeper as a very limited option

All great shots werkhorse. I have a few pics of Australian Atkinsons in my collection mostly pulling tankers for Nestle. They all have
the plastic day and sleeper cab. There was only one of these cabs in the UK it was on a eight wheel end dump engaged on coal
haulage from the Yorkshire and Lancaster coal fields. It worked for a company called Hansons who had a huge Atkinson fleet back in the day it was involved in a bad accident and written off by the insurance company.    Bob.

PS. I think a historic vehicle restorer has imported one of these cabs into the UK but cant remember if it is an artic unit
      or rigid truck.
