Promoting Excellence in HO Scale Vehicle Modeling

Dodge Truck & Trailer Livestock Hauler - By John Raymond

John Raymond tells us he is a New Zealander living in Australia. While a plumber by trade, he drove trucks in NZ for a while, mostly carting livestock and general freight. This a model of one of the trucks that John used to drive carting livestock. It is an English Dodge powered by a 175hp V8 Perkins diesel (low gear on every 2nd hill says John!). It had a 20ft "crate" on the truck and a 28ft "crate" on the trailer, single deck cattle, two deck sheep. John is another first-time contributor.
