Vaughan Transport Australia Foden and sheeted load

I notice with interest some of the photos submitted from the southern hemisphere displaying roadtrains and the like so this is my effort at an Australian contibution. I forget the details regarding this truck, maybe someone can help. Are they still operating as a company?

Hope you like. Grant.

It is a Foden S20 operated by a sub contractor pulling a Vaughan Transport trailer. The shot was taken out the front of the premises of Aboods Transport, 195 Briens Road, Northmead (SYDNEY) in 1970 by the late Ron Knight. I have the original slide in my collection along with all of Ron's slides of various trucks.
