Pacific National's NR8 still carries the branding of its predecessor National Rail, while trailing unit AN9 carries those of Australian National which had by the time of this photo been defunct for six years.
They are working 3PM7 Perth to Melbourne Trailerail (Roadrailer) service seen between Tent Hill & Port Augusta on Thursday 24th July 2003.
The use of roadrailers was progressively phased out by Pacific National, the last running in Australia circa 2009.
