History

This tanker was one of a fleet of petrol and bitumen tankers owned by Total Australia Ltd. It was loaded at the company's Banksmeadow Oil Terminal (near present day Port Botany).

The wagons were mainly painted black with recently built wagons off-white.

In 1982, Total had 16 NTAF and 22 NTBF tankers in service.

Since the demise of Total Australia, tanker NTBF 4716 was repainted with Ampol branding.
