Tankers (2)

This Mack Cruise-liner, of Reliable Haulage, with liquid fertilizer B-train was parked in my street one night in the 80s.

A Nelson petroleum Distributors Scania 92M of 1987 vintage is way down the West Coast of the South Island at the settlement of Fox Glacier. From here it is only a short drive to the melting face of the actual Fox Glacier.

Another Reliable Haulage fertilizer B-train. This time a 1986 Mack Super-Liner R722RST, spotted at Mount Maunganui.

At BPs yard in Palmerston North is an old rusty Leyland which must have seen duty as an aircraft re-fueller, judging by it's "air BP" livery.

In the late 80s, Chemical Cleaning Company of Mount Maunganui had an all Mack Super-Liner B-train fleet.

On the same day as the above photo, in the nearby Shell yard, was the Volvo NL of owner driver Seth Douglas.

At a truck show at Hutt Park, near Wellington, is a 1987 Volvo N10 with cement tank.

Whilst staying in Auckland a few years ago, I wandered to a nearby motorway over-bridge and shot this Foden in Mobil colours.

This Orica Chemnet chemical B-train, with Mack motivation, is parked overnight at Copthorne Solway Park Motor Inn in Masterton.

This 1993 Freightliner FLD was one of the earliest trucks of this model to come to New Zealand. It was operated by
a Mr. Keegan from Wellington, but is seen here dispatching it's load at Shell Chapel St in Masterton.

A gas tanker pulled by a 2003 Iveco Powerstar of Hookers, is seen here parked up at Palmerston North.

Leyland Beaver FB 2186 was at Auckland Airport when I photographed it in 1984/85. I wonder what happened to it ...?
