Here are several modern trucks, and a range of machinery, working on the Regional Rail Link Project at Sunshine (Melbourne, Vic.). These are crops from low-light photos, and have been pushed a bit beyond technical limits. There is little point aiming for id, unless it is easy. Perhaps it is: does the diagonal radiator slash on the two dump trucks reveal Volvo?

Nothing special, and coming out of turn in my rotation around themes. Probably an easy identification.

I don't know the make/model of the prime mover, but it must be an easy identification for others.
