16314 - 3-4 ton Arato tracking trailer, Australia  
Unidentified Arato tracking trailer, formerly at The Village Experience, Fleggburgh. It is understood that this trailer entered preservation from Garrett's works and had been used within the works. The wheels are smaller diameter than normal and it is speculated that the trailer was returned by a dissatisfied customer and then converted for use in the works by modifying the wheels.
