Much more then ''old Australian road train''. One of Kurt Johannsens ''Diamond T roadtrains'' with his own designed self-tracking trailers. Another big Oz legend preserved.

[Thanks Richard. I received the pic from Ron without a description, but have now updated the detail accordingly. Editor]

I learned everything I know about road trains from K J.We rented one of his Diamond T units for 2 seasons in1955/6,
to gain experience in moving cattle by road, then built a road train base at Helen Springs. I then had 2 prime movers specially built by George Rotinoff in Slough, England which began operation in 1957/58. One is also in the Hall Of Fame
in Alice Springs.
