Bugly, I'm pretty sure that's a limited edition for the 30th anniversary of Western Star trucks in Australia...

Here are two from Jeff Bounds showing the prime mover used by contractor Coleman Rail for placing ballast. My memory is that it is a Kenworth, but I can't be sure, and have no idea re model.

Now to identify the model.

Rodrick, I think you will find that the Swishman is refering to the Mildura photo ;)

Ah yes, re Mildura, I would have said Bedford too.
Now for the model.

Another from Jeff Bounds. I can't guess the prime mover, or the operator, but L Arthur (West Melbourne) gets a lot of the railway-transfer traffic.
This one was heading to a private property. The railmotor is supported on its own frame, with some interface between its bogie pivot and the prime-mover's turntable, and likewise at the rear: sitting on a three-axle road bogie. Somewhere in the history thread is a vintage photo of one of these being trucked from Alice Springs to Larrimah (six were built).
