RTL01 and former VR ballast hoppers

Today I went for an hour and a half trip to Muswellbrook to find the 
RTL and ballast hoppers that I had seen on Wagonfreaks blog.

1 Western Star truck, add highrail/railway wheels and you
have an RTL. This truck was once owned by V/Line and
Freight  Australia and now owned by Just Tracks. I don't
know too much about this oddities history except it was used
on log trains under its Freight Australia years and the horns
on the bonnet seem to be a new addition.
