Another Unusual Vehicle, Or Part Of One…

Whilst waiting in line at the Wellington ferry terminal to board the Interisland ferry,  we see this strange looking truck. Well, it’s the cab in the front that looks unconventional: in fact it seems to be a specially made sort of “tug” that can shift the back end of articulated trucks to load them on and off the ferry without needing the regular truck cab to be present.  This one was unloading a New zealand couriers semi trailer and it looks like it deposited it somewhere  further up the terminal for collection later. It’s the first time I’ve ever seen anything looking like this, so it’s a new type of vehicle for my collection.
