The truck may be older than 25: I don't know. Is it an International? Even blowing up the original, I can't read the model code. It seems to be C then three digits. The petrol station and disused car salesroom must be older than 25. The photo is only a few weeks old.

What is the brand of petrol being sold?

Yet again, trucks & trams come together.
I can't identify either prime mover.
Adelaide H367 is being moved to an overhaul, with the body on one truck, and the bogies on another.
Is there an optical illusion?
Is the trailer sagging, or does it work in two pieces, with the towing force transmitted via the tram underframe?

A Volvo in NZ brings the first of the Spanish-built emus (electric multiple units, suburban trains) from the docks to Wiri Depot, Auckland.

Another crop from Jeff. Something modern at the flour mill at Kensington (Melbourne, Vic.).

Another in the series of crops from contributor Jeff Bounds.

I can guess Isuzu, but not the model; I can't get the semi; the others are too obscured to bother.

Isuzu looks like a 300 ( 3 ton dual cab ) , whist the Semi is an International, probably an S3600 built in the Dandenong IH ( now Iveco) plant.

I keep finding photos while working on other projects.
I guess that this one is a rubbish skip. It is in Argentina, and so could me a make unfamiliar in Australia, or it could an international off-the-shelf from one of the combined manufacturers. Iveco seems to get a world penetration. I don't know if Argentina has its own manufacturing; Brazil does.

Ushuaia is on Terra del Fuego, and is the base for summer Antarctica touring. Ships are resupplied and passengers change over. The airport handles B747 charters. Europa makes regular voyages to the region, and is part of the fleet which has come via Perth, Adelaide, Melbourne & Hobart to be in Sydney for this weekend's fleet review. It is continuing via Auckland to Antarctica again.
