V/Line Freight's Road Transferrable Locomotive RTL 1 was intended to facilitate operation on many parts of the Victorian network where the short distance between lines by road provided advantage of the lengthy distance which would have been taken by conventional locomotives for the same origin and destination. In the event it was used for a short time hauling logs between Sale and Bairnsdale. V/Line Freight's private successors did not use it and it passed back to the Government who sold it to a New South Wales based track maintenance business.
