Greetings. I've only a few more weeks of photos that are worth posting but we'll plod along for now. The M A N fuel tanker was taken in Blaney [main street I'm guessing], the Kenworth was an A R Mansell, the 6x4 Volvo I have down as Hawthorn- bit like a Kwikasair truck with European comfort, a blurred F86 for Brambles and the ERF was a E J Burton. The ERF Chassis magazine did an article on his operation way back in the 70's. All these B & W photos have been in one of those old albums that you peel back the cellophane and the photos are positioned on a sticky paper and they are a bugger to peel off to be moved to a 'modern' album after being photographed. When next I see Nifty I'm going to borrow a good few of his albums especially the ones he has with collectors' items in them- and I want his truck brochures as well so I can finish that project. Next time.

Greetings. With that last lot of 5 the first photo has a Lindsay Telpher 1418 with the Kenworth of K M Rodger going round the post office corner in Nuri, next is a Taylor Dalton Atkinson taken around Marulan somewhere then a C A Hill 1418, an Overland Trucking M A N and an E C Phillips 1418 all taken in Nuri. I used to hang out a lot by the post office corner in Nuri and little did I know then but Nifty used to park his EH in the Vine Inn car park and watch the trucks as they travelled through Nuri so we were doing the same thing but just didn't know each other until '72 or 73 I reckon. Anyways we'll see what I can come up with for next week. Next time
