Title: RANDOM SHOTS FROM BC
Post by: JJG on March 18, 2012, 10:36:30 PM
Caught a few interesting shots in the Langley region.
Starting off with this killer Lonestar, looks tough with the moose bars but I'd rather see that nice grille
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/052.jpg)
This black 379 probably sounds as good as it looks, a few extra lights too!

A 379 with an m/t tridem flat deck
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/055.jpg)
Probably a few relics in this batch, a classic 81 Chevy pick up peaks out in anguish :(

The 389 that is draggin this sad lot around
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/057.jpg)
a 387 that looks like it might be a former Trans Ft McNamara
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/059.jpg)
Very nice Tridem reefer sitting here with the reefer going, coolin' the meat!

one of these trucks is likely the one hooked into it in the morning

Nice Pictures, Do you know what the company name said on the door on that last Kenworth, looks identical to one that is here(they haul logs and wood chips),  They run the exact same setup with the moose bumper, truck number on the hood, pinstriping, but the only thing is there isnt a front plate which would be odd if its from NB

Thanks guys, I took a closer look at the KW Cat304c, too sharp an angle unfortunately, the air breather is in the way, truck # is 38 if that helps, wonder if they sold one of their trucks? Couldn't find a plate on it either, the Volvo has an Ontario base plate and I thought they were running together but not sure!! There was only one trailer. I'll look for it and if I see it again, I'll try to get a name (or side shot)

Interesting series of great looking  trucks. About 10 years ago, I use to see, once in a while, Pathfinder trucks in my neck of the wood.  I have not seen any since.

I thought they had a terminal out of Toronto then and in the 90's Gerard, don't know if they still do, and they had one out of Burnaby( I think) here, should google and see if they still have.

OK, according to Google, they are just north of me, Pt. Kells (Surrey BC),who knew!! No listing for any other terminal so I may have been confused with the Toronto region, our local Torontonian aka Rob Archer, or Doug McKenzie may know!

I was about 2 minutes too late to catch him actually dumping, that is a site I love to see. They haven't been active much on weekends lately to catch anything, I was surprised I found him there that day!! During the week, its busy all day! I'll try to get back there one day soon....................in the action!!

I'll look forward to your action shots of the chip dump. Yep, I like getting out on weekdays for the action, unfortunately other people seem to have plans for my vacation days! :( But this year I'm putting my foot down, I'm taking 5 days and use them one at a time for getting out for truck photography during a week day.

Keremeos is always an interesting stop, always cool old trucks for a very small town. The first one is captured in a yard full of gems, I took a series many years ago and while the stock is depleting, this is one I can't recall seeing before. A 70's White Freightliner COE
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/115-1.jpg)
in a different yard, A White Western Star concrete mixer, retired but looking OK from a distance
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/118.jpg)
GMC 9500 short hood still plated-not sure its current-looking quite fine from a far as well The current mixers were behind a concrete wall so I opted not to climb and shoot!
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/119.jpg)
Another yard finds this assortment of fine trucks
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/116.jpg)
Climbing Allison Pass, this Turk Pete 386 made it look like nothing out of the ordinary, but I sure love the look of a good looking hard working truck

Lots of variety in your post and some great shots.  Never been anywhere in BC except to Victoria and I once made a delivery of a roof top a/c in downtown Vancouver that I picked up in Philadelphia PA and back in the 90-'s my wife and I did a cruise to Alaska and the point of arrival on return was Vancouver--a beautiful city.

Thanks guys for all your comments!! It was a long overdue road trip and hope to do more!!

Tranquilman, no, it wasn't me, back in the shop today as the sun shone bright!!

Walt, both Vancouver and Victoria are great cities for sure. You'll have to take a road trip out this way, if you do, let me know, maybe we could connect!!

Gerard, Legal Freight?? Not sure of them either, looks like a very new truck and there was only one there, not in any Transforce yard. I'll ask Hank if he knows anything of them. Does Pascal have any info?? I see CF utilizing brokers on the highway runs but don't know where legal operates!

No, there are a few of us I'm sure, I don't think I would be bold enough to stand in the median just yet but hey, great for getting both directions!!

Thanks on the Legal info, do you suppose they would just have the one truck in Kelowna?

Well, our mystery shooter had a tripod set up, so he was pretty serious.

And as for Legal, I was set straight about them by an old road pounder many years ago. He told me how to pronounce the name properly  ??? and that they did a lot of contract tractor service for Canadian Freightways before Transforce took them over as well. He told me he ran team for them from Edmonton to the Yukon/Alaska border back in the 70's and 80's. Other than that, I don't know anything else about them...

I know  I've lost good shots due to rain, if I'm in an area not likely to return to soon, I'll try getting one in the rain, don't always come out but better a wet truck then no truck :) I try to shoot in the vehicle so as not to risk getting my camera wet!

I'm wondering where he posts them. I,ve thought about setting up the tripod, would make for some killer pictures. Usually, i just take my camera and shoot as we go or at a stop.

Transforce sure has a huge grip on the CDN trucking industry. Strange as I shot that Legal, I didn't even look at the name just thinking it was "Transforce something" and when posting, I looked at it closely to see what exactly it was. Glad others know as I had not seen them before.

Seen lots of action the last few days but didn't capture too much of it. I did catch this in a "rush, zoom, shoot" thru my shop window. It sounded like it has a mid 80's Cummins in it as the turbo was giving that distinct whistle of that era. Looks like he is trying to get it ready for paint!

I caught a few on the weekend, mostly CN trucks so  posted those in the CN Transportation thread. Here a re few from the Vancouver Rail Terminal that were not CN units as well as few randoms thru the week.

A Kimberley Trucking Century & 40' can pulls out of the Termianl to somewhere unknown
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/009-3.jpg)
Interesting scene here, trying to catch this Trans X KW T800 when I heard this V8 roar trying to ignore it shot anyway and caught this new Camaro given'er on a curve no less, not very patient for Mr. Trans X
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/006-6.jpg)
looks like another JDP but a Vision (Pinnacle) in command of the m/t chassis

a short distance away, a look at Burnaby Green Houses (Surrey) and the trucks on hand

This morning I found this Ben Moznik FLD Classic sitting in behind my shop with a tridem step deck. Later he left and what a deep sound coming out of those fat pipes.............it's a beautiful thing!!

Took a trip to Vancouver last night, on the way back out we made a wrong turn and ended up at Richmond, turned out to be a bonus as some photo opportunities became available.

On the way up. took a "point n shoot" of this T800 bulk B-train tanker thru a dirty "into the sun" windshield!

(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/013-1.jpg)
and as a bonus shot, this really would have been the perfect one to capture with the truck! It turned out better then I thought as he really was coming in low. I couldn't get a shot over the fence like the other one!!

I like this .classic" Western Star. Seem to be a nice old tanker in this Texaco set up. Look like a Ford of the end of the thirties.

Post by: Rob Archer on June 09, 2012, 05:19:05 AM
That's a great little Texaco museum. "You can trust your car - to the man that wears the star". I certainly remember Fire Chief and Sky Chief signs on the pumps.
That was a wonderful night shot you posted in SHOT A DAY the other evening.

 Keep these coming please Jim. I enjoy the BC Lower Mainland coverage.

Thanks guys!

Gerard, I think it is a 38 or 39 Ford, have to go back in daylight and see if it is open to view! Been there for years, can't believe I never seen the truck in the cage!

Rob: Texaco is in Milner, corner of 216th & Glover Rd (Hwy 10), towards Langley, hard to see from the road.

The White was a new one Charlie, I hadn't seen it before. Looks like it is going to be used as a deck truck, I think the chassis is off a newer truck with lopros, it was cool! Is that the model that had the engine "slide out on a drawer" for servicing?? Seem to remember something about that.

I like a lot the Triton Western Star.

Me too Gerard, I have been trying to catch him for a while now, Saturday I drove across the bridge and seen him sitting there, too hard to catch off the bridge (as you can't stop) so Sunday the wife and I biked over, stood on the curb (of the service road below) and zoomed in through the fence!

Title: Re: RANDOM SHOTS FROM BC
Post by: JJG on August 07, 2012, 11:25:58 PM
Delta is a very interesting spot, I really should hang out here more, so much truck activity along the river. One of those unique spots is SeaSpan, they operate a trailer only ferry service from the mainland to the Island, it leaves Delta and goes up to Nanaimo ( a central point of the Island).
Here is a GFS truck picking up a set of wiggle wagons out of the holding yard
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/018-7.jpg)
this is a view looking North of the holding yard catching a variety of carriers using this service
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/016-5.jpg)
looking east from the river, all the flat decks loaded with lumber in waiting
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/024-2.jpg)
zooming in thru the thick river edge foliage, a shunt tractor exits the ferry, having dropped his trailer on the boat
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/019-3.jpg)
next one is backing a Bison trailer up the ramp, making very quick work of it too I might add. It's odd that they have to back them on, maybe the Nanaimo docking ramp is not a straight line on; he'll come bob tailing off in a minute......or less! OK. I'll just add this as I realized the only way to drop a trailer would be to back on, so disregard the first part of this description.
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/022-1.jpg)
a load of lumber heading out of the yard with an FLD Classic 120 taking charge of matters, looking good, sounding killer, ah the river, smell of diesel, and sounds..........nice!
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/015-6.jpg)

I have a few more from around the region, but this is it for the ferry series for now. Hope you enjoyed.

a midroof Columbia sits unattended with no regard to the undressed load of lumber, the weather forecast was no rain but who would bank on that? Apparently he did and it did not rain!

Post by: JJG on August 14, 2012, 09:40:11 PM
Thanks guys!

   Wow Gerard, he would be far from home I really just came across these guys the other day, don't know how many trucks they have but the FLD would be cool to see.

Charlie, you're absolutely right about too young to retire, not sure of the year but it looks really good, I looked a few times after noticing no front plate, it hasn't moved for a bit. It looks like it's having a good life!

I wasn't sure if I had it right Dave, figured that one might catch your attention, not sure how to tell the Pinnacle from the Vision but a good guess on my part this time :)!

Here is the pic of an Ulster Transport FLD 120 I took last June in my neck of the wood.  The Western Star was also a truck for Ulster. I took those pics in January of 2009  in a small truck stop along TCH in St-Jean-Port-Joli, about 100 km southeast of Quebec City. It was in a snow storm. The road to Quebec City have just been closed for the next 24 hours because of the storm. The driver  was certainly feeling  quite away from home then.  I have noticed on the Western Star and on a Classic I took 10 years ago that it  seem to be a link between Ulster Transport and John Maywood Trucking both  from Abbotsford BC.  Maybe Maywood is a brooker for Ulster or Ulster is a division of Maywood ?

Thanks Gerard, great shot of the FLD with that cool style sleeper, not a very common bunk but I always liked that look. Looking at the Star it almost makes you shiver, glad that isn't current, summer is much better, and it finally arrived here this month!

There is definitely a connection to John Maywood, I noticed that on the building and on the trailer sitting behind the W900L as well.

This IH Fleetstar doesn't look half bad, taken in Mapleridge. zoomed in between fence posts. I wonder if the sign maker they used realized he spelled "serices" in correctly :(!

(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/003-32.jpg)
Far from home,  EB #10 HWY, Langley, a very cool Burgess KW K100 with drom from Nova Scotia, going Coast to Coast. This truck is just old school and cool!!

Always like to swing past the S&R Sawmill accepting Woodchips on a Friday night
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/024-3.jpg)
this Vedder Peterbilt has split up his B-train and is dumping the lead first.
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/028-1.jpg)
He will then hook back into the unit dumping the pup. Other style Wood chip trailers dump the lead thru the pup and do not have to un-hook. Check the angle of that platform, you swear the truck will go backwards, especially if they shake the platform to empty stubborn packed chips, the suspension travel on the unit is frightening as the truck combo moves up and down...........or back and forth

With late summer at hand, a road trip was necessary and the weather did not disappoint, probably the best weekend of the summer so far really. Like a fool though, I did not charge my camera and of course, the batteries died on route, leaving some really nice shots and trucks only a memory in my mind!! Here are some that I did catch:
Starting off in Langley, a Pro-West Columbia
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/007-21.jpg)
A Mack Pinnacle entering the TC #1 @Langley
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/001-45.jpg)
A CNTL on the Surrey side of the Pt Mann Bridge on #1
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/002-31.jpg)
A few taken in Squamish, KW W900L

A Peterbilt 388 from Bert's Trucking from Pemberton hauling "Mountain Water"  taken @Squamish

Van Kam Sterling and tridem box

A Martin Brower Cascadia McDonalds taken @ McD's in Pemberton
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/011-13.jpg)
and the "photo-cruiser" taken near Lilooet on Hwy 99, a beautiful mountain rd that is a drivers road. Did not see a truck on the road from Pemberton - Lilooet but there was a grocery hauler following us as he made appearances in Squamish, Whistler, Pemberton and Lilooet, 4 chances to shoot him and 4 misses!! Nice with the T tops out as 360 degree photos are optional. That is were the battery pack said no more!! :(

My wife Judi shot a few here on the move as I was driving, a cool Peterbilt 386 from Whiskey River between Hope and Manming Park  on #3 Hwy

Here is one more from that batch I forgot to post, showing a Volvo dwarfed by the mountain tops at the summit of Allison Pass. This is a 25 mile climb from Hope to this point and goes down for about another 25 miles before the climb and descend of Sunday Summit into Princeton
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/VolvoManningPark.jpg)
Provides some grand views.............IF you like mountains!! To me there is something unique about mountains and trucks, listening to the working engines climbing and the "barking" jakes on the way down! Hope you enjoyed the series as much as I did doing the drive!

These are some great pictures Jim, and kudos to The Missus.
When you saw that W900 at Truxpo were you counting up your pennies to see if you could come with 89000 odd?
The route around Princeton is pretty rugged for sure - a big difference from the St Thomas region in southern Ontario.
Thanks for taking us along on the drive.

Thanks for all your comments guys, it was great to take some trips, hopefully the weather holds out a little longer, we may take on one more before the snow flies............not interested in being up there then really, although it is nice looking in the snow!

I like that style bunk too on those models, also looks great on the Classic.

Thanks guys!

I can see why the Tenold driver your way isn't home often Gerard, that is a long haul!

Great shot of the W900 Rob, a unobstructed view, I wanted to have a look at the trailer axles, looks like they may be individual sliders as I don't think they are spread in my shot.

Now for the final batch from the weekend, a trio of transfer dumps including an FLD 120 and a pair of T800's taken at.....................96 Ave@192 St Pt Kells

I caught him a few weeks back and couldn't get a good angle of him but going back paid off. Overland West, Pt Kells

I remember coming across that post once Charlie, and I thought i should drive out to Hope, wait at the bottom of the summit and I could probably catch some downright nasty stuff, specially on a dry cold day, snow on the summit and no rain to wash the salt............just never got around to that though!

So, on that note, one of the days I was out, I tried to get a picture of the day, not easy between the endless rain, but this was a must.!! He was EB towards the freeway, not sure how far he planned to go with one pup.

I rarely do urban photography. It's too frustrating. There is always a four wheeler, a post , a sign or people  that get in the way in the last seconds. I like the Mullen T-800.  I ever got   his twin  but it was long ago.  Since I have only seen 0/0 for them.

Truck spotting in urban areas makes things interesting. When I take highway pics sometimes I sit there for 20 minutes before even a vehicle goes by. Gets kinda lame after awhile. Nice pics though think my favorite would be the Carleton Services Western Star.

IMO those CAT trucks look best in a darker colour, makes them look less plasticy.

this is a rare site out here, an expedite unit from FLA, Landstar to be exact it is a Peterbilt 330.

I,m sure he did Rob!! Although I don't think the truck has been sitting there too long, it would only have to have been a year before Hank would see it and WOULD bag it if he did!!

Around here it is so damp it would only have to sit for a year or so before all that moss and green would gather Mike, but I think it may have been a few years now. Don't know why I wouldn't have shot him before though as I check it out each time i go thru that area, must stop Truck Stop for a crazy truck fan!

Thanks Jim. The purpose of the trip was to bring our new logging truck out to Langley for some warrenty work and then drop it off in Mission. It started hauling on monday. I was at kenworth, but unfortunately my camera decided that it wasnt going to work, so I didnt get the cool rigs that were there.
Anyhow here are the catches

Could be, they have a lot of plain white COE's for the industry, I have seen as many as 15 at one set while they're shooting, they must have bought any one that came up for sale in the past many years!

Haven't noticed a red on but there are a few black and some blue I've seen, not many compared to the white, the one you took, is that in Burnaby at Grandview and Rupert or Boundary?

A while back I caught this truck in Surrey, exchanging trailers for Moznik, he just sent me a few more to post of his truck, clean, in different places!! The first one must be mine as it is taken as he entered the yard, but the rest are from him, don't know where they are from!

 Lee, these are posted with you in mind; every time I go to the ferry terminals I think of your posts. This is some activity found at the Schwartz Bay Terminal (serving Victoria) on a Saturday afternoon. As you can see. no glamorous fishing trucks but it is the weekend. One of these days I need to be at Duke Point (Nanaimo) during the week as it is the busiest truck route service to Tsawassen from the Island
Here we have one of the shunters moving an H&R reefer to the holding lot with the Spirit of Vancouver in the berth along with the smaller ferry we were waiting to transfer onto, servicing the Gulf Islands
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/008_zps177d9635.jpg?t=1361261423)
a Peterbilt day cab drops off a Thrifty Foods trailer, they are from the Island and have some stores in the lower mainland.
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/010_zpsb15dcf5c.jpg?t=1361261450)
he unhooks, the shunt truck hooks in and moves it to the Vancouver bound lane. I am told they keep the shunt trucks hooked up, drive onto ferry and walk off, drivers on the other end walk on and drive them off, returning a bunch with m/t or loaded back to the Island
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/013_zps9c5a679d.jpg?t=1361261515)
now in the lineup, same trailer different graphics on the RH side
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/020_zpsa44ce5b3.jpg?t=1361262086)
this one is a Freightliner M2 from Van-Whole Produce from Vancouver-same lineup-, probably returning from his daily delivery, I shot this one from the next ferry we already loaded-as we were first on-up off the passenger deck. This was our transfer to the Gulf Islands (not in sequence)
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/023_zps99f3847f.jpg?t=1361261953)
a view from the "cafe" while waiting to board, the little one in the fore ground is the "Queen of Cumberland" that we sailed on with the "Spirit of Vancouver" in behind
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/019_zps89f29e44.jpg?t=1361262046)
Fresh Direct Produce, also from the Vancouver area going back
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/021_zps82abba41.jpg?t=1361262116)
Edgemont Movers of Vancouver rolled up with this little Hino
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/022_zpsb56367aa.jpg?t=1361262138)


Bonus Shot: One of the "Coastal Series" that we met thru the Strait of Georgia from the Island along with one of the smaller ferries servicing the Gulf Islands. We were going the other way on the "Coastal Renaissance" These are the largest double ended ferries in the world and they ride quiet and smooth.

Once on the Island of Mayne, very little trucking activity t be found, couldn't find 1 tractor trailer combo but they still do have some trucks and here they are:
The Home Hardware Building Centre uses this Sterling to deliver the goods
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/041_zps315ee88f.jpg?t=1361264295)
True Valu Foods has this truck on hand, it seems to be resident so they must leave the Island to get their goods
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/043_zpsd063b2cf.jpg?t=1361264358)
fuel is available via IH 4400 tanker from Esso
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/042_zps125b73f8.jpg?t=1361264295)
this GMC Topkick dump truck was sitting at the Ferry Terminal parking area and the next day it was working on the Island
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/045_zps8efbd40b.jpg?t=1361264437)
the best I could get of this Loadstar as it was tucked in between a few buildings
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/044_zps5f3fe60b.jpg?t=1361264375)
wife Judi spotted this KW W900 off a side road-good eye girl- a U turn was in order pronto to zoom in on this truck trailer combo, the only one I seen as a combo
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/062_zpsd5339717.jpg?t=1361264442)
the roads are maintained with this Fuso, and they are in good shape so it must be able to do the task ::)
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/063_zpsb6217cd8.jpg?t=1361264506)
now this was interesting, as we waited to board the Queen of Nanaimo back to the mainland, a few cars had to offload but what was different was this GMC T series backing off the ferry
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/064_zps1191a443.jpg?t=1361264514)
it also was from True Value Foods but I don't think it resides here.
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/065_zps5a803e0b.jpg?t=1361264125)
a 3 point turn and away he goes.

Bonus Shot for today is this scene as we left Schwartz Bay (Victoria), one of the Coastal series, a Spirit series and a Queen series just entered into were we left from.

Fantastic series Jim. In all all my years growing up in Burnaby I've never been to the Gulf Islands. I'll bet my American bride would love to check them out this summer! Thanks for the pics, AND the inspiration!
Title: Re: RANDOM SHOTS FROM BC
Post by: JJG on February 23, 2013, 11:33:52 PM
Rob: It is about 1 hr 15 min. from the mainland, makes one stop @Galiano Is. before crossing the strait to Mayne. We opted to go the long route-one stop to Victoria (Schwartz Bay) with thru fare back to Mayne, stopping at Pender, Saturna and then to Mayne-as the earlier one mentioned left Tswassen @ 8:15 AM, too early for a Saturday. Our "milk run" left@ 11:00 but we didn't get to Mayne until 5:00.  There really isn't that much in the way of old iron there.

Ted: Judi says your welcome!!

Tranquilman: I heard the happenin' Island is Saltspring, seems to have a lot more activity on it, Mayne, the resort was nice but we didn't find the hospitality all that great this time, wouldn't go back! Pender/South Pender was good too and have not been to Galiano or Saturna yet, next time we plant to see Saltspring. Are you still in Burnaby or have you moved to the interior?

Just a few more from this series, a few at the  terminal @ Schwartz Bay
a trio of Canuck wagons at the holding lot

Yeah, Tim's trailers roll on, roll off, no payment required :) ::)!! Well, at least if we had it our way they would........but then there would be a lot of other things we'd have different now wouldn't there be??

Ted, interesting you caught the Repli-Car..........I noticed it in the picture but not when I took it, more intent on getting the trailer shot! I did see it at the docks side from the rear but no idea it was in with all those V-K units and it didn't make for a clear shot from there either!

Post by: Jon_G on February 25, 2013, 02:43:30 PM
Very cool catch on the Repli-car! Looks like an Excalibur or maybe a Zimmer, but there are very subtle exterior differences between the two so it's difficult to say. Personally, I love the authentic 1930's cars a lot better (especially the V-16 Caddies, Marmons, and Dusenbergs), but these from the 70's and 80's are neat too.

As for the trailers, is that logo on the back of the Van-Kam vans new, I have never seen that before.

Dan I would say the Esso, Flying J and cheveron (which are all together) in Chilliwack and the Husky just down the road, or the Petro-Can, and Gateway travel centre/Flying J in Kamloops. Always lots of trucks at those truck stops!

Yup, I second that. BUT, there's a new Flying J being built just a few kms from Hope, and there's J's Cafe, with Chevron and Husky Cardlocks, just down the road from there. J's has been there since Noah's Flood, and is kind of tucked in from the freeway but there's usually a few rigs in the lot and the food there is awesome. "and the waitress calls you hon." .... ;D

Other than the one's mentioned already, there's virtually nothing in the Lower Fraser Valley. It's one of those places that makes a trucker feel down right unwelcome actually, with virtually nowhere to park except where you're delivering to picking up from. If the Vancouver area could talk, it would say, "Hey you! Trucker! Get in here, give us our sh!t, now get the **** out! And NO! You can't stop anywhere!" I guess there's the Shell gas station on Annasis Island, just off of the Alex Fraser Bridge, but it's just barely a truck stop, with parking for no more than half a dozen trucks at a time....

If you're going East, the ones at Lickman Rd., the Husky at the next exit, or the ones in Hope, are it.

Does it show that I absolutely hate driving a truck down there? ... ::) >:(

If I were driving around this province, I would agree with you, not much in the lower mainland, always feel bad for the US drivers, come up I5, clear Customs and that's all you got, the scales :(!

Totally! It's got to be an absolute culture shock to them. They come from the land of truckstops everywhere, and can't believe there's absolutely nothing.

Anyway, sorry to hijack your thread... :P

As for the trailers, is that logo on the back of the Van-Kam vans new, I have never seen that before.

That logo is, I believe, to benchmark 75???? years of service.

Been a bit since I updated this, I believe these have all been taken in the last month and all around my area.
coming at me in the rain is this Star form Eagle West, they do a lot of work in the lower mainland moving concrete barriers around from Construction site and road projects
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/001-74_zps46dce029.jpg)
this is a Century from Atlas Van Lines, agent is Premiere Van Lines  out of Langley

An older Ocean Concrete Westernstar mixer is being serviced in Langley
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/002-49_zps8a3e24c7.jpg)
Strait Express has a fleet of mostly flatdecks and this Peterbilt 330 has 4 pallets of glass for sandblasting. It was a nice day to unload him.
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/007-31_zpsf98ad320.jpg)
an m/t can is being delivered to the storage yard by this Workstar,actually it is a 7600, a small task for him.
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/009-21_zpsc36b2dc9.jpg)
an aerial look at this Pete as we enjoy a bike ride over the bridge, he happened to come around just in time for the shoot, being a Sunday there were not many in sight so we peddled on!
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/001-74_zpsabb3f9e5.jpg)
till we got to this old girl, making another quick stop, shooting and movin' on. This old Volvo COE still offers duties as a crane/flatdeck for BosMon Properties, a local company
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/002-49_zps81786e01.jpg)

I see instead of a pot of gold you got an ESSO station with a 1.37 price tag. You guys are about 6 cents more than us here in the GTA. My "local" is a Crappy Tire gas bar and it showed 131.5 yesterday. Nice pictures; where's the snow?

Yeah, you know what they say BC means Rob; "b"ring "c"ash!! Now, that's one thing I have on you, what snow?? We had all of a dusting of snow 2X this winter and gone by lunch time...............it must be the oil companies using the extra far west profit to melt the snow before it hits the ground here :) ::)!

Thanks guys! I quite like the WS mixer too, nice colour and set up LCH and Charlie, no gold as I couldn't catch the rainbow.......flippin red lights!!

I have been trying to catch one of these guys for ever now, this to date has been my best result and I'm clearly not OK to let it go yet.........ONE day.....I will catch the front and side both hooked in as the B-train and this way, a four wheeler got right in the lens when I had him framed coming at me :(.

A few more randoms from the lower mainland, a Condor ( by Freightliner) packer coming at me
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/001-74_zps80a0afe7.jpg)
same day,same Rd, a Supersave Mack MR packer is working away
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/002-49_zps21c41850.jpg)
this would be an ideal time to break down..........if the driver would be looking in his mirror that is. It is an IH 4000 series from Aggressive Towing
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/010-21_zpsc76cb5fc.jpg)
DC Chambers Western Star most likely just dumped the wood chips @ Pt. Kells
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/001-74_zps337bef4e.jpg)
would have liked to get a better shot of this one but waiting for 4 wheelers to pass, this was the best I could do
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/068-2_zps7f259d8c.jpg)
A Peterbilt 387 Car Carrier returns m/t from a sloppy mountain run, obviously still dumping the salt on the higher elevations I would guess
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/070-1_zps020d4e8d.jpg)
Scamp delivers a lot of fuel to various stations in this region, just unloading at the Shell Gas bar down from where I live using a fleet of these T800's to do the job
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/071-1_zpsd0605a6b.jpg)
another bike ride, another shot form the overpass, catching this unknown Cascadia heads WB on #10
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/060-2_zps07002393.jpg)
zoomed in for a far, this T800 hauls construction equipment for a local contractor when not resting for the weekend
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/061-3_zpsb01c720e.jpg)
a Volvo VHD and crane bobtails EB on #10, not a common unit in these parts
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/007-31_zps972cb963.jpg)
this was unique, a T800- well not that part- but the fact that it is a vacuum tanker trailer sure is as he was sucking out a..........yeah, smelly ol' septic tank.......in a residential area. I wanted to get the whole thing on camera but the road was not wide enough......and I had somebody behind me. The colour of this truck is somewhat fitting for the job it is doing ::) :)

of the nicest trucks.

You're right about that not being common Ted, it is-was- a Freightliner offering.....the only thing I recognize from the family is a lower grille section borrowed from the Argosy (?) and it should have the coat hanger badge above the grille which this one does not have. I have added that on the description too! I see a few and I caught one from the same company near Aldergrove, I think it is posted on the main page.

couldn't pass this truck up, caught it earlier thru the fence from across the street, went back later on bicycle ride to zoom in thru the link to capture this fine W900L, a shame for the damaged tank

From Abbottsford we took the back way to Chilliwack, just because it's a cool road but no truck traffic till we came up behind this Aggressive Cascadia- turned off at Cultus Lake-notice the lack of exhaust stack(s)
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/031-1_zpseed9d8fb.jpg)
arriving at the Husky @ Chilliwack, a nice clean Erb Prostar greets us! I was hoping for a Lonestar but not to be
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/035-1_zps4a61e71a.jpg)
next to it were a pair of cool blue/green trucks, a Pete and a KW but I could not read the name on the bunk but both sport Manitoba plates
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/036-4_zps0d7f3468.jpg)
further on down the line sits another KW W900L all cleaned up looking just fine, unknown carrier Bakke's Trucking of Ontario, thanks to LCH!
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/037-3_zps0f2920e5.jpg)
there were a pair of Turk Enterprises of St. Andrews Manitoba Volvo's -always have nice clean looking equipment
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/038-1_zpsf52c5dca.jpg)
also a 2nd gen Coronado from Shadow Lines all cleaned up, looks good in blue, hooked into a step deck loaded with dumpster bins. it was a good day for clean trucks there and for a Sunday I thought there were quite a few
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/039-2_zps5d27345d.jpg)
to the back row we go to capture a smart Mack Pinnacle-  Rawhide on with Berry & Smith based in Penticton BC
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/042-3_zps0cea8d7d.jpg)
a different view of the other Turk
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/046-2_zps908e6f57.jpg)
this KW was pulling out with load of rusty pipe on a tridem flat deck, straight pipes gave it a favorable sound as it barked out on it's run to wherever!
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/043-5_zpsb76bfab2.jpg)
from across the street I was able to get a line up shot with a nice backdrop on a clear day to boot!
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/044-1_zps9debd916.jpg)

The Bonus shot for today is this 53-55 F500 or 600 sitting in a field near Yarrow.

Nice series with lot of interesting trucks but  my attention was hit mostly by the two old Ford and   bonus VW van.   One of my first vehicle was a 1957 white and red VW van. It had 35 hp with a  the first and second gear not synchro. I was afraid quite a few time on hilly roads when big trucks were pushing me  with their big bumpers a few inches from my back window.

Speaking of the Flying J, these were all taken form the empty lot, a great place to shoot from which will change very soon.
the first one to appear was a Penner International Volvo
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/105-1_zps8999c286.jpg)
followed by this cool Arrow Western Star tri-drive with B-train side dumps, probably coming in from one of the mines
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/107-1_zps902e3354.jpg)
this Cascadia 42" flat top tridem food grade tanker looked pretty slick in the sun WB TCH
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/118-1_zpsa0003c39.jpg)
looked East and I saw this cool unit coming at me, I panicked and shot, zoomed out too far so I tried again to catch the hind end, a cool Coronado with a shorty from Lynden Transport
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/108-1_zps96715af4.jpg)
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/109_zpsa41646ec.jpg)
then a straggeler from the Military convoy comes into view, point/shoot
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/120_zps595db179.jpg)
nabbed another EB one right after the army truck
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/088-2_zps484a81c0.jpg)
wife spotted this Jamie Davies M2 crew cab deck truck on the overpass, a zoom and shoot, best we could do!
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/113-2_zpse5e9ee19.jpg)
 
The Bonus Shot:
a cool IH Fleetstar in Hope still looking pretty good but I don't think he has a job any more, retired! Although I do see a plate up front that seems currrent :)

The Arrow Western Star hauls from the copper mine here in Princeton to North Van, they are based out of Chillawack at the Arrow yard.  The trailers are side tip.  No dump , just drive on a ramp and the truck and trailers tip to the right.

It seems like someone has a bit of power with the Goverment ;), and they have a special permit for extra wieght.  Kind of a special restricted route permit.  I can not remember the weight ###.   But it saves ;D the world with 1 less truck on the road.

Well thats not fair :( Why does the big boy always get something special  ;) lol
 They do that in the Yukon and i think they can get something like 72,500kg

Interesting stuff as usual, Jim.
My favourite is definitely the Arrow tri-drive Western Star just because it has a real meaty look about it!
I think I read somewhere that the Downton 389 is an owner/operator and is the only one in the fleet.

Thanks for all your comments guys!

Hanky: I'd like to see that ramp tipping the trucks, you say the tractor goes in for the ride too?? That is unusual, I did look for the hydraulics but just figured it was concealed on the other side. Very cool deal!

Saves on weight as well there are large hooks on each of the trailers and one on each truck.  Will try for a picture this weekend.

Tim:
I should have got another shot of him, he was on the other side hooking up when we rolled in and that was an against the sun shot on the move!! I think it was a Pac Lease truck, maybe they are testing the unit out?

This is the last batch from that outing, I guess we took a few more pics then I thought, maybe the first of the year fever!!
This was definately the reason for crossing the road to the Chevron Cardlock, this 2nd gen Coronado caught my eye from Mullen Transport Group
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/172_zpsb5486822.jpg)
there were 3 or 4 of these colour trucks from Manitoba, couldn't get the name on them though

a Bison Cascadia taking a rest between there and home
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/178_zps049b93a5.jpg)
this unit reminds me of the older Robert colour but hooked into this enclosed car carrier van, we know that can't be the case! The ghost lettering on the door says "Just For Fun Trucking".

Not much activity this weekend, just a few local shots thru the week and this weekend.
This Sea To Sky Transfer Western Star is a tri-drive CAT powered heavy duty unit, used a lot in the placement of the concrete barriers and any place else a lift is required.
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/003-51_zpsa865028f.jpg)
a T600B is the only one sitting here, no trailers, no other trucks, maybe they moved! Can't think of the name of these guys right now, Whiskey River maybe?
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/009-21_zpsae156c1a.jpg)
point and shoot is what caught this T800 hauling a can coming into town today thru Milner
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/011-19_zpse9ee3625.jpg)
shot the Kindersley T680 while it was stopped for the light, he was heading out of town!
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/013-15_zps604f9bab.jpg)
Cascadia in Langley late in the day
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/020-3_zpsb7c3753a.jpg)

The Bonus Shot: this one did not come easy.
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/027-2_zps8c8bcc01.jpg)
As we were viewing new car dealers etc, I seen this cool BJ and the Bear type KW coming around the corner, being quite far away, I had to zoom and blew that shot completely. We then took chase and about 10 miles later finally getting ahead of him, tried 2 more times with fails!! One more attempt and with a flash, on the move leaning out the passenger side window-Judi driving- I shot him. Turned out amazingly well for that, He pulls for Arnold Bros. from Winnipeg and or Ontario.

Great catch on the K-100.I didn't think Arnold Bros would have a truck that on with them.Going to have to watch for it around Edmonton.

You have worked hard  for this  BJ K100 for Arnold Bros but the result is quite nice.  I have taken many Arnold Bros trucks over the time but only one K-100 and it was a well used 0/0 unit  taken in April of 2003, more then 10 years ago.

Both are nice trucks even though the BJ and the bear one mite be a little nicer, they are both k100 and that just makes them awesome trucks!

Great shot too Gerard, yours looks cool with the tridem reefer, it would look really sharp in the red/white and black! Mine has the rectangular headlites too so I think they are both '81 and newer!

Starting off with this IH 4300 single axle dump, looks to be semi-retired, here are the rest from the weekend
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/010-21_zps702daca6.jpg)
point and shoot at a Downton's T660 south bound out of Pt Kells
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/016-11_zpsf6c970ee.jpg)
right after the above one I could only get this view of a Northbound Pete
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/022-7_zps8cbb783c.jpg)
getting gas across the street from the IH dealer, I just had to shoot this one, a Workstar looking for a home
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/012-16_zps8da13368.jpg)
around the corner @ a warehouse in Pt Kells, we were rewarded by this fine 379 Pete with plenty of bling but not too overboard IMO. Hooked into a Wallyworld trailer for CanXpress
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/025-5_zps350b57e6.jpg)
sometimes trucks deserve 2 shots
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/026-5_zps90a120aa.jpg)
around the next corner, another score, this one I have caught before in transit but now parked on the side, this cool 385 don't know why I posted 385, I meant 389 but.....it is a 388 car-hauler hood option - a Clint Moore creation, thanks Tim. from Downton's
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/029-3_zpse6a44eef.jpg)
a little LN Ford still has a job with in the gates shunting trailers here, propane powered.
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/028-5_zps5c305c07.jpg)
then dear wifey caught this wild Pete sitting at an exhaust shop in Pt Kells. I thanked her very much as I had just missed it the other day!
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/20130516_183825_zps93b5713e.jpg)
she did well to take a close up of this sharp scene, posted as well in "colour matching".....ya think?

The Bonus Shot: a very sharp 59 or 60 Ford F300 tow truck sittng on display north Langley at a car buff's memorabilia's house. Shell and Goodyear appear to be the main topic.

Thanks for the info Tim, good to know.....now I just have to remember! The 388, it just sits lower then? Hard to see a difference, I thought maybe this owner just lowered the ride height on a 389.

Post by: RobG on May 30, 2013, 02:58:36 AM
You can't go by the height ,I drive a 388 and it sits really high in the front.That Downtons 388 is a really nice truck.I have seen it a couple times going through town and there was a story on it in 10-4 magazine a couple months ago.A lot of details put into that truck. I really like the old Chevy COE with the bunk,cool truck.

The 388 and 389 are different hood sizes, not the ride hight hight... I believe

Post by: JJG on May 30, 2013, 10:48:59 PM
I would guess the hood is shorter on the 388 then? It looks like the standard hood length for the 389 but I didn't get an angle on it. I caught it earlier, I'll take a look t that one; one thing we can agree on........it is a nice one!!

Ya its sorta like the kenworth model w900L and the w900B the 'L' is the longer nose, same as the 389. And yes it does look good, really good!

Entering back into Canada @ Osoyoos, this tri-drive T800 unique set up was sitting on the main strip, interesting sleeper on a dump truck, clearly this is not a local delivery truck

here is a Peterbilt 377 transfer  dump running around Langley

followed by a Western Star 4900 SB Tri-drive
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/017-11_zps7166f63d.jpg)
Oddly enough I had not heard of this show today and tomorrow till Friday as my wife heard about it where she works. APNA Truck show in Abbottsford, we checked it out and here are our findings!
first one inside the show-Jamie Davies Towing 4900SB Western Star, this is one I have not seen, his other truck is a tri-drive
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/002-49_zps956a097f.jpg)

(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/003-51_zpsa5f296d6.jpg)
the weather was just fine so we headed outdoors and this unit was on hand enticing new drivers
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/004-38_zpsbbd22f72.jpg)
IMO this was the ultimate in gravel trucks, stunning KW900L complete with Seminole Paint scheme and Knight transfer set-up
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/008-30_zps359a76a4.jpg)
this same set-up, very nice unit too in blue

a very fine Pete from Jete's Transport, Vancouver
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/010-21_zps507b501a.jpg)
and another very fine Pete from the same company
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/011-19_zps34655915.jpg)
I tried to shoot the Argosy-from Jete's as well- but there was an event taking place at the stage in front of it, too many people blocking the truck to even see it. I do have this unit elsewhere in my collection

I'll add another batch of Peterbilts in a few minutes.

this one was impossible to catch without spectators hovering around so I just shot it anyway,

Very nice series with great looking trucks. I am a little surprised to see a T-880 as a dump truck. But maybe I feel a little nostalgic this morning so my vote go to the VanKam old KB  International.

Gerard:  The T880 is offered as a modern update to the T800 but production of the T800 will only cease if  there is no more demand for it.......so the news blurb states form Paccar.

Eric: It looks as though it has never worked yet, no "working blemishes to be seen, I thouhgt it was the Big Star at first but wondered where the lettering was and realized then it isn't a Rotater and it is a tandem as opposed to the tri-drive! Maybe the Tri-drive isn't show worthy.......after a few seasons in the working world or maybe they are replacing the KW?

Jim.

I heard they took the rotater to Fort Mcmurray becuase the government decided to use some fairness system and let all the tow companies work on the coke. I dont know if this is true but with the way the goverment is it wouldnt supprise. They could be adding to the fleet to, or even getting rid of one of the old trucks (like the blue ones)

I know I have ever seen this truck but since I am not a fan of trucks heavily modified I could not remember where and when.  So Wayne comment just wake up my memory. I have a few pics of this truck. Here is three I took at a truck show in Ste-Catherine on the South Shore of Montreal in the summer of 2008. The truck  was built and owned by the owner of Transport MB from Alma in Lac St-Jean area.  I had problem taking pics because they were lot of people around  the truck, he was parked in a wooden area and there  is always lot of shadow at the end of the afternoon.

Wow Gerard, that is insane!! I wonder if he changed this one now or if there are 2 running around??? I checked many times to see why they look so much the same but yet so different; it now has a shorter W.B. and a mid roof sleeper in stead of the flat top. It also has a taller ride height-unless he hasn't dropped the air out to "slam it". Those suicide doors on your pics is wild-not sure if this one has it as the handles are still at the rear?? Who would ever think there would be 2??

                          That has to be a different truck because in Gerard pictures not only is it a low cab that would come with a flattop but it is also chopped.The flattop also has older door handles on the sleeper.Can't see somebody changing the cab.

You are right guy, it's a different truck.  I found another pic I took at a truck show in Sanair in 2009 and  we can see that except for the paint job there is a lot of differences between the original MB show truck and the one seen in BC.  I also found a pic I took  in MB yard in Alma in 2004 of a Pete flat top pulling a covered wagon. This truck was then the flagship of the fleet and since  his  licence plate number is the same than the show truck  # 1 , I guess that the show truck was eventually an evolution of this flagship. The one seen in BC have a different plate number.

Thank's Jim for this pic of the barn and Mt Baker in the background.  When I see  this environment in a pic, I forget a little about  trucks nearby. I like too your bonus pic. Is it a storage bin situated just behind the cab ?  I have seen live only 3-4 Ulster Trucking trucks  in my photographic live. Each of them had a little something special and  despite their age they were kept in very good conditions.

Too bad I didn't take a better shot of that part, the engine is mounted further back so that "sleeper bunk" tilts to access and service  the engine, I didn't ask if it was an actual sleeper or storage bin Gerard, glad yo enjoyed the barn shot!

Post by: Mackinac359 on July 07, 2013, 03:45:50 AM
Great pics!   

This one is a 378 (older than 388) - the styling cue would be the grille shape - on 388 (and 389) there is no seam between the top of the crown and the side panel.
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/BC%20Big%20Rig%202013/009_zpsa687a044.jpg)
And this one is a 367 (longer hood, external air cleaners)

Thanks Tim, I knew the 388 was incorrect and should be a 378 as I entered in the info but the 367 is one I didn't know. I see the difference between the 365 as you mentioned, I think this is the 1st time I have seen one-or at least close up enough to see the difference, I will make the changes!! I know every time i have a Peterbilt question, you will come to my aid, thanks!

Hey Jim next time your out east of Abby, there is a Mushroom farm beside the freeway on the north side. I heard last week he just bought a tandem steer Pacific from Allied Ready Mix, 1988 and has it parked between the barns could you get a picture please. Went down on Tuesday but did not know where the exit was so missed. There is a Pacific P-9 Black sitting there, close to the freeway.
Thanks Hanky

OK, too bad, just went back to Chilliwack  today and got back now, I know the place you are talking about, it might be the weekend before I get back to it, I'll take a look for it. I seen one of those in service about a year ago in Richmond, maybe Delta? I bet they are all gone now!

Here are a few more of the show, I did not post all that were there, some of the ones that were there last year I didn't shoot, so I hope not to offend anyone that was there if your truck is not posted, just randoms is what I took!
another killer logger, this awesome KW in the Seminole scheme
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/BC%20Big%20Rig%202013/051_zps1c7ea20c.jpg)

always enjoy a loaded truck at a show, this nice W900L has a covered load on B-train flat decks
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/BC%20Big%20Rig%202013/059_zpsdc266137.jpg)
DeVry's had this nifty little 359 "California style" Pete on display
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/BC%20Big%20Rig%202013/050_zps1e728bcd.jpg)

(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/BC%20Big%20Rig%202013/035_zps419be7e3.jpg)
Jamie Davis Towing has the same truck here as was at the APNA show a few weeks back, now it has his name on it, still no sign of the rotator.
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/BC%20Big%20Rig%202013/037_zps77cf191e.jpg)

(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/BC%20Big%20Rig%202013/062_zps80d2fccc.jpg)
this 58 or 59 Chevy Apache 4X4 is very nicely done and has been in the working show circuit for many years now, still just excellent condition. Powered by a 5.9 Cummins with roof mounted AC it would be a very cool unit to operate!
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/BC%20Big%20Rig%202013/067_zpsd1e5e362.jpg)
OK, so a 2nd look at this one too, what can I say

I'm going to really throw you for a loop..   this one is a 388 not a 389.   Huh?   It's a 388 (123" BBC) car hauler hood option (which lowers the cab/sleeper and eliminates the slope to the top of the hood).   Clint Moore had this built - he had to order the hood and mounts separately and rework the cab mounts and sleeper mounts for the 388 to match the low-mount car hauler hood.   The folks that say 'yay or nay' to the order just couldn't understand why he wanted the low hood and ride height but then put a tall cab and sleeper on it and wouldn't build it - but did sell him all the parts to do it...  and this is the result.   A high roof, low riding 388.   The only way you'd really know it's a 388 is by measuring the BBC..(or look at the data plate inside the cab which isn't always practical)  it's a real trick-of-the-eye as to what model it is.  The 388 car-hauler hood looks better than normal 388, and the 123" BBC gives it more of a 70's 359 look.

Thank you so much Tim, the explanation sounds bang on to what the owner mentions, all parts you say are on that build but I did think he mentioned it was a 389 platform truck that then had the mods done to it! There are more, the exhaust is all frame mounted and the stacks are for show only, something to do with the nasty urea stains that leach down from the exhaust when the burners kick in-my terminology is not correct here, I am a former dfriver, not a mechanic, never dealt with any of these updates, can you tell?? The urea tank......now that is cool!! Behind the first fuel tank strap-under it- is the filler for the urea tank which is part fuel tank, part urea. Battery boxes were also changed but can't remember whet he had to say about that, should have got his name so I could contact him, maybe he could add the missing details. But, it is a unique and very cool truck!! He loves his ride and takes pride in it and his career, great to meet people like that out there still!

Wow Eric, we must have been at the Husky around the same time as I have the same trucks taken, just haven't posted them yet!! The nice K100-BJ And The Bear style- was at the show the last few years, very nice truck and the blue and gold K100 for sale at the Esso is also one I shot, wild to see the same pics I have before posting!! I tired to get a shot of the Tim Horton's B train, the tractor pulling it was an IH 9900i from PQ, how does that work?? Nice shot Eric.

While there is some logging going on around Chilliwack, most takes place into the interior, some of those were from Princeton and points East and North. Princeton is about 125 miles in or so from Chilliwack. Maybe Eric or Hanky would have a better idea how far these guys go in a day to get the logs and back to a mill they work for. I'm guessing around 75 mile radius of where they are based.

It depends on what kind of wood, how much its paying and whos buying it, some hauls can be 12 hour or more round trip, like Lillooet to Chilliwack or the Fraser for example but most are fairly short runs from 30 min to a few hours.

Eric
Title: Re: RANDOM SHOTS FROM BC
Post by: Hanky on July 11, 2013, 05:43:58 PM
Most hauls here in Princeton are 3 or 4 trips per day, 10 to 12 hrs a day.  There is a lot of dry wood that does go to Chilliwack and that is a 2 load day if the wood is on the west side of town.  What most do is one to Chilliwack and then 1 or2 here.

Here are a few more of the show, this is one of four trailers of it's kind, used to haul pre=fab wall sections, the frame work collapses to allow hauling a container or other items.

followed by this Freightliner Century
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/032_zpsd1802a8b.jpg)
Onward then, to Chilliwack we go, discovered an industrial area there I have never seen before, lots of fine Peterbilt trucks just sat there wondering why they were not in the spotlight so I answered their call.
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/034_zps665b7f17.jpg)

wifey shot this nice looking IH 9900i for me from Tridem Services, in Chilliwack
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/033_zpsc2b9abcd.jpg)
the next three are back in Langley from this week and last, strange thing, 3X I seen these trucks coming to me, could not get the shot, on the way back to the shop within 15 minutes, they were returning so I pointed and shot.
KAL Tire has this fine looking Prostar with A-train pups

(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/004_zps21da99a6.jpg)
this is an odd catch for me, Skelton Truck Lines of Sharon Ontario must have set up a yard here as they would not be running this unit across the Country, a very nicely appointed KW T300 T270/370 -thanks Dave- with reefer looks great in their bright livery
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/002_zps0d941367.jpg)

I like those two pics with flowers. They add something special to the pic. First time I see a Skelton straight truck. And of course, I like the old Chevy.

Thanks for all your comments guys! I see Hank catches the Skelton  tractor trailer units on the Lunch Time series often; I heard they haul blood and medical supplies? I would want to think that is just local but it may not be who knows, they do run a sharp fleet and that little KW is not a clear shot but I HAD to attempt, on the fly!

Dave, I will change the designation number to 270/370, I couldn't remember what the new # was. Thanks.

If I needed a photo of the day yesterday, this would have been it, who can resist an FLD 120 Classic XL?

I looked at Skelton's website and saw nothing about a Vancouver area terminal but it wouldn't really surprise me. There are a lot of Skelton trucks out on the Trans Canada, Jan caught several,  so they must have some decent business out your way.

Rob

So, you mention the website but then you don't give us a link? Yer slippin Mr. A...  ;D

Here, for you viewing pleasure, is Skeltons website...http://www.skeltontruck.com/index.html (http://www.skeltontruck.com/index.html)

I have always wondered about their operation. Like, why two reefers? And, like Jim, I heard they hauled blood and medical supplies. According to their website, this appears to be true.

Anyway, I have always been impressed with their equipment, which is mainly Paccar, but just recently I saw a Volvo in Skelton colours .... the horror!

Thanks for the info on the Skelton, it could be the little KW is the same one from their website, such a crappy shot on my part but it looks to be a 19.

Just a few from this weekend and a few from last week, starting off with this poor Hino with a massive headache   did somebody say improvements??? Naw, that isn't very nice ::)

(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/007_zpsd994dd86.jpg)
mostly blue and then some yellow but this fleet, Ranger Transport of Surrey always has some neat stuff, this Pete 388 looks like it had the chassis painted and is in for new rubber
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/008_zpse7e5e8d1.jpg)

Now for the ultimate bonus shot, the wife and I were touring the back roads of Langley when she mentioned an old truck, it was almost dark, I seen the silhouette too and realized it is a Bullnose........right in my own stompin grounds how about that!! I went back today after work but should take my pickup so I can stand in the box to get a "higher view"
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/006_zpsfec3e413.jpg)
I WILL be going back for more!! I zoomed in on it just standing on the road.

(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/007_zpsb22d07ab.jpg)
across the street from the Esso is the parking spot for this nice 2nd gen Coronado with grain B Train trailers

then south east part of Chilliwack is where Visscher Truck Lines works out of hauling lumber on B-Trains -usually- but this one sits with a load of , well, not lumber. But they do have a very nice small fleet of Western Stars. Not sure how many they have but here are 4 and a 5th red one

Haha, Jim ,you were thiiiisssss close!

Those Western Stars belong to Visscher alright, but they do more than haul lumber. Westform is makes roll form roofing there, and they use Vischer to deliver all over Western Canada... Lumber is just one of the products they get as a backhaul. Nice private carrier, someone has to die before a job opening comes up there!

Yep, the old FL is their yard goat.

And, if you'd gone west at the 4-way stop, you would have found Rainbow Greenhouses. And their fleet of white Volvo's... woo hoo... haha...
Title: Re: RANDOM SHOTS FROM BC
Post by: GrantNZ on August 04, 2013, 11:19:23 PM
Several eye-catching trucks here Jim, particularly the fleet of stunning Western Stars, Atlas Cascadia, 2nd gen Coronado & super grain hoppers and the T-Lane W900L in the second to last Chilliwack lineup shot.   8) 8)
In that same shot, the closest truck to the camera is a dark green 389 pulling a flatdeck super-b - my question is what is the company name? I remember seeing quite a few of them carting lumber when I was there so they must have a reasonable sized fleet surely....
Title: Re: RANDOM SHOTS FROM BC
Post by: JJG on August 10, 2013, 12:51:28 AM
Hey Jon, thanks for the info, I knew there was more to the story, great looking units, remember them to have maroon/gold stripes Peterbilt 379's that looked very nice too! I'll be sure to go West @ the 4 way and check out Rainbow, might end up there this weekend!

Grant, I tried to zoom in on that 388 Peterbilt lumber hauler, all I can make out is they are from Abbottsford but can't make out the name, sorry! If I see one again, I'll take not of the name or shoot it!

Gerard, you shot this truck-or one like it- in your neighborhood when it was new, I've been trying to nab him ever since and this is the best I could get, surprised me as I just pulled up to open my coffee, seen him coming, zoomed in to quick and had to shoot as is
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/016_zps01a3c1be.jpg)
so I shot him again, Super Save Peterbilt 330(?) -367,thanks Tim- tri-drive Propane tanker

Post by: JJG on August 10, 2013, 10:53:50 AM
Thanks Tim, it did look heavier then a 330 and with the outboard air cleaners I should have caught that! Not the best shot but I'll catch him again!

Eric; that thought crossed my mind but because it has almost exact specs as another W900, maybe that was an O/O as well. Thanks!

Should have got some shots of those Peterbilts at the time, too late now!!

Grant, there were quite a few of those Peterbilt lumber haulers here, just couldn't get a proper angle with the low sun, VanDokkumburg of Abbottsford is what it says on the door
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/008_zps35805472.jpg)

Never did get out too far this weekend, Abbottsford and back so not a whole bunch of new ones!
I did get a few from this lot off the freeway were trucks can park, just park, no services except across the street.

A Classic Freightliner always looks good, bright yellow does on this one!

The 367 up until the 2014's had three headlamp options - singles, quad (think 379 lamps) and the 389 lamp.  The 379 quad lamp is no longer offered.  (the 389 lamp didn't become available on 367 until 2010).  The lamps all mount just aft of the grille shell on the hood skin.   367 has several bumper options also, as well as a "HeavyHaul" version with a taller 389 looking grille(set-back only).

367 with single lamps

(http://images46.fotki.com/v284/photos/0/11670/11301948/P1180041-vi.jpg)
To really mess things up - here's a 367 HH with bumper mounted lamps in a FEPTO bumper.  Note the fixed grille screen too.
(http://images51.fotki.com/v282/photos/0/11670/11301948/P1190693-vi.jpg)

367 is available with under hood air cleaners too - which makes it more difficult to tell a 367 from a 365 (never has external air cleaners).
Just for reference - a 365

Thanks Tim, I don't know if I'll remember that all but at least -like in school- I did learn it!! I hope to get a better picture of the Super Save unit, I thought it had fender "integral" headlites but looking closer it may not have, bumper is unique though which gave it the appearance of it's little brother.

Golden is a "trucker friendly town" with it's service roads on both EB and WB sides, all the fast food places on either side. This smart looking T800 logger is in search of food

east of Golden is Kicking horse pass, it has some challenging curves and climbs/descends. Improvements are on going as this bridge is new to me. The wife nailed a hay hauler as he makes his way across
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/148_zpsc549c5e7.jpg)
and rounds the bend continuing down, down, down!

After Cranbrook, make another climb over the mountains via the Kootenay Pass, descend and end up in Creston. This Volvo is somewhere in between
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/414_zpsa3510146.jpg)
once in Creston, home of the Columbia Brewery where Kokanee beer is brewed and served up in samples upon request......it was hot.....I gave in......it was good........I bought an 8 pack for the price of 6!
this truck seems to shunt trailer for the brewery, my kind of shunt truck!

Thanks Gerard, glad I could be your tour guide!! I think back on your post of your trip to Sept. Isle (I think) where you cross the St. Lawrence on the ferry, much the same, I enjoyed that as I may never end up there and had no idea of that region. I'd rather pay you a visit, we go on that tour together but reality is we can't go everywhere so pictures give us that journey.

Post by: JJG on August 28, 2013, 11:12:28 PM
Not a lot of towns between Castlegar and Grand Forks, just a nice resort town, Christina Lake, I was driving so no truck pictures taken on that stretch.
Grand Forks has a pulp or paper mill so a lot of the traffic in and out were from that industry, first a retired Western Star in town and a T600B seems to be in the same boat
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/465_zps3d1ac03e.jpg)
Sutco is well represented in this region, a Western Star B -train wood chip heading WB out of town
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/468_zpsfb770110.jpg)
Mack Titan fully laden down with logs
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/477_zpsa7326a8b.jpg)
a T800 follows not far behind
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/472_zps84447c77.jpg)
more construction, a Ford LTL 9000 tanker keeps things wet
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/480_zps4d25be41.jpg)
I don't see many Titans, 2 in one day that close together is something to write home about.....or just post works too, this one loaded up with the finished product
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/481_zps28febb3a.jpg)
there are reefers and vans too though, here is proof of that, a fine Peterbilt from Dairyland....we'll see him again.........you'll see
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/483_zpsf6ca54b9.jpg)
Coming into Osoyoos is quite a spectacular entry, a switchback descend winds down the mountain to a very tourist resort town, the lowest point in the Okanagon valley and the warmest climate in the country.......why don't I live there?? The first time I went thru here I wanted to capture some pictures of this and finally I did on this trip. There is a mandatory "brake check" for all truck over 5500kg at the top and a nice IH 9900i B-train flat deck loaded with plate steel was inspecting his unit................I knew he would be coming down soon so we found a small street near the bottom and stationed there for the shoot.
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/494_zps0daa7b70.jpg)
I missed him coming thru the top side
thru the bend
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/495_zpsff918fbc.jpg)
what a fine job Mr. 9900i
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/496_zpsfff47080.jpg)
still one more switch back and then down into town, this really is a truck fans paradise as the sound of the Jake rips the silence of the scorching quiet sun and that's all you hear till he passes thru, awesome!
Oh yeah, remember Dairyland? Here he comes
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket001/502_zpsac468f05.jpg)

sweet
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket001/504_zpsc1b43316.jpg)
then we saw Mayflower coming up, now that will be easier to follow up  and capture the very top, so, in sequence, here we go

now ya gotta start looking a little harder......but he's still climbin
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket001/513_zps67d99b73.jpg)
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket001/514_zpsd135c8a5.jpg)
around the top and out of sight, still quite a climb from there
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket001/515_zpsb6bae87d.jpg)
and an overall look at the mountain side he just ascended and a logger coming down m/t, they really motor on down m/t

Cool pics! I love Gradalls, that one does appear relatively new, and is probably around a 2009/2010. The grey paint scheme was introduced around the year 2000, and was replaced by a new yellow/black paint scheme for the 2012 model year if I remember correctly.

the scenery is just about as good as it gets between Kelowna and Penticton, winding hills and a beautiful lake, trucks add to the beauty.......IMO

Penticton is a very tourist town with a lake on the north side with beaches and on the south also with parks and beaches.......how do they rate we ask!
The first one up as we entered the city was this Coke truck
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket012/115_zpsc9d00c63.jpg)
then this cool M2 concrete mixer had just finished pouring at a job site along the lake
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket012/117_zps4374af79.jpg)
roaming around thru town we find this KW of mid 80's vintage-note the 74 Ford Gran Torino leaving you to wonder just what year is this?
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket012/128_zps1a66bf7c.jpg)
sharp W900L
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket013/136_zpsb4c17fbe.jpg)
 very clean older IH 9400i at the same place
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket013/138_zps002cd8df.jpg)
very cool and unusual set here, a 9600 IH with a skip bin lift
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket013/143_zpse80cc57c.jpg)
90's Western Star dump truck looking fine
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket013/150_zps8ebf1e52.jpg)
Berry & Smith has their home terminal here and this awesome KW was in the yard
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket013/148_zps552e2e2b.jpg)
a  fine 389 was also sitting here both O/O's
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket014/147_zpsb30ce4a4.jpg)
a few of the company trucks

Somewhat behind here, after Penticton, we decided to go the south route, 97 South to 3A to 3@Keremeos, seems to be our favored route, so, Princeton is the first real stop and we find a Berry& Smith not far from home
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket018/162_zps8148dd56.jpg)
then this sharp Western Star logger rolled into the Chevron, nailed him on the move
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket018/163_zpsd11c23f4.jpg)
and a cool  IH 9900 (Rolls Royce) Hay Hauler we seen comin out of Keremeos, caught up to us here
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket018/166_zpsdb7bfbe0.jpg)
leaving Princeton, Sunday Summit comes next, we made the climb and got turned around due to a closure. It was said a 5 hr delay, -a fatal accident took place, however, heard nothing about it and couldn't find any info on it after we got home-went back to Princeton and detoured via 5A to Merritt, now THAT is one desolate piece of HWY, we may have met all of 10 vehicles mid day Saturday? One truck, pic did not turn out well so we ended up in Merritt again, Now , I have spent very little time here so on this trip we decided to explore; I learned several things, there is a Husky Truck Stop here, Tim Horton's, Walmart-never new of it-and this is a logging/lumber mill town!! You may agree after this
first a few from the Husky
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket018/189_zpsdc2c0ece.jpg)
not a huge amount of activity but it IS Saturday

intense afternoon Sun
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket018/188_zps86c8b5b6.jpg)
did somebody say wood??? This is one of several mills, just a few logs, Tolko Mill
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket021/215_zps8a5177f4.jpg)
a big KW900H
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket019/209_zpsf5605ab9.jpg)
Western Star had a good representation, here is one of

a line up at another Mill
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket021/210_zpsf92a793a.jpg)
Peterbilt wasn't common but this 367 makes for a cool truck
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket021/226_zps67e23a37.jpg)

1st Bonus Round!!!!!!!
TOLKO has a nifty 46(ish) GMC on hand with a custom grille
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket020/200_zps08124abd.jpg)
just so you don't think there is nothing else besides logging, a Mack Valuliner gravel truck, looks retired
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket020/205_zps45cf8668.jpg)
and...somebody has to collect the garbage, maybe this IH 4900 will help
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket021/218_zps3dad84cf.jpg)
and.....there are concrete mixers too!! I found this batch plant interesting, built into the rock hill, they just load up the gravel as they extract it from the mountain.......no need for an elevator
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket018/195_zpsc7c303b1.jpg)
another look
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket018/197_zps625d0322.jpg)
here is a twin steer RD Mack
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket018/196_zpsd0c03adb.jpg)
up on the top of the hill was the retired "boneyard" for this company. I think somebody likes using this poor bulldog as target practice
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket018/198_zps0ea4ea13.jpg)
an IH tow truck seems to be on hand to assist the loggers and other trucks around town should the need arise for such service
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket021/227_zps3dadca21.jpg)

2nd BONUS ROUND!!!!!!
this time an authentic "Wurlitzer grille" in the 46 Chevy truck taken at the Roads Maintenance yard
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket021/221_zpsaac080ed.jpg)

So, we leave Merritt, learned a few things and seen lots of great stuff........I didn't show all pictures.......that would be another chapter!!

Not much to add, back in the lower mainland and work etc. goes on. I found this old IH 8600, looks to be an ex Yellow Freight unloading at the local Shoppers Drug Mart.
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket024/001_zps3d5156a3.jpg)
Judi, aka wifey-shot this very cool Peterbilt at Fort Fabrication, Pt. Kells, they added the truck body no doubt but just exactly this truck's purpose. I don't know. The colours are outstanding though. I wonder if it has something to do with sewer vacuum?
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket022/20131001_155111_zps09263493.jpg)
I caught this cool old-1974-KW A model still working, Damion, the owner of the unit is very happy working the truck daily, powered by a 318 Detroit. He does have a new hood for the beast
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket024/005_zps11bd2694.jpg)
 

Bonus Round!!!

A while back I spotted this Bullnose KW and vowed I would return........well, I did, not a very good day weather wise and couldn't find anyone around to get approval to get up closer so I zoomed in, standing in the box of my pick up, at leas the heavy rain flattened out some of the weeds.

Post by: Mackinac359 on October 10, 2013, 03:15:26 AM
Would you believe 357?  It's older than '08 - pre model change to 365. The tell is the thin grille surround that just barely wraps around the hood skin (same grille used on 385, 378SBFA and 357 SBFA).

Post by: G. Laplante on October 27, 2013, 09:17:51 AM
Well Jim , seem that my memory is not so bad. I have catched  a VT 880 that was looking quite like yours.  At the time he was owned by an independent trucker  and the name of his company was 747 Express.  At this time ( July 2009 )  the VT 880 was almost new since I had catched a few years before, his old truck, a blue & white  Volvo VN 660 .  He was based in Langley BC.

Thanks for all your comments guys!

Gerard, you rock!! Your memory is right on and that is a very nice shot of that tractor! She has quite a few more miles on her now but still looks good!

Here are few more from today, took the day off, such a perfect fall day, just had to go for a tour!! Up first, Langley (Goucester Industrial Park) is this very fine FLD120 Classic day cab from JDP Holdings working for Vitran. I have seen this truck around but could never get a good shot till today!

(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket042/031_zps6fd75665.jpg)
around the cornor we find this new storage/parking lot filled with an array of pretty cool rides. A Western Star Lo Max, need to take a 2nd look to make sure it isn't a Pete or Freightliner
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket042/032_zps64f6e54a.jpg)

Here we don't have only a match between Jim and Wayne with this Motrux KW  with a moose bumper , we have a home run since I have catched the very same truck on the Quebec North Shore last month.

The Bonus Round!!
from earlier this week, heard a CAT running outside the shop, looked and saw this awesome LTL Ford 9000 dump. I had to stop what I was doing and grabbed the camera for the shoot
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket044/006_zps15f38f5d.jpg)

Hard to catch trucks for me lately as the days are so short, I just shot a few while out and and about but not much action really!
Saturday last week a few from the local Country Lumber Store in Langley
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket050/002_zps0f6f5665.jpg)
young dude (on the other side) washing on of the Pete's after a week of dirt
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket053/001_zpsba34611f.jpg)
Sunday was beautiful, caught this Freightliner FL112 spud truck coming into town
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket054/013_zpsd117ede8.jpg)
I'm starting to take to this Western Star 4700 model, not many of these are tractors and with the wind deflectors makes for a handsome unit.
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket052/016_zpsfb79ccb0.jpg)
bit of a side view as he turns the corner- the little 500 Fiat in the frame is actually a small sign at the intersection letting you know that if you buy a condo down the street, you will have one in the parking garage with your name on it :)!
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket054/017_zps586ab3fd.jpg)
this was a catch for today as I grabbed a Sub for lunch, a T2000 is hooked into a shorty for the PC
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket056/002_zpsc11937b2.jpg)

***COMMENTS from The Cheap Seats***

Fiats are bloody expensive for a two seater. I looked at some at one of the local dealers last summer. The stickers in the windows were over 25000.00!
That was a cool catch of that Canada Cartage bunk truck. It could be based anywhere in Canada now and be out your way.
That COE has the AMJ Campbell sticker on the side, rather small but it is there. I'll check to see if I've seen him down here at all.

Great update Jim; keep shootin' and showin'.

$19,500 in the US for a stripped Fiat 500, goes up to $29,500 for the Gucci edition.  Popular with the more-money-than-brains crowd, no doubt.

It looks as though the Condo might be a better deal-if you value the Fiat as they do-then once thought? ::) I would like to know just once what that would be like........to be in the more then enough money crowd!!

A great series of pictures Jim.I love all the old iron you caught parked  in different yards.I see the old tiltcab Chevy has a bunch of plates hanging off the front.He must be going for an old truck look or something.The GMC/Volvo cabover and both K-100s are very cool.I have seen that T-Lane 359 out this way a few times,I agree it is nice to see the old truck still working.

You got a nice collection of truck pics over the last month.  I like a lot  your old trucks pics specially the Chevy tilt cab.  I like too the dump trucks under the snow and the bonus pics with the bridge as a background. T-Lane was the  BC carriers I have seen the most often in 2013.

Went for a walk to take some pictures this morning bright sunny day -17 and 10 minutes later going to get a couple of pictures and batteries were dead from the cold.  So I am glad you got some there Jim.
Title: Re: RANDOM SHOTS FROM BC
Post by: JJG on January 06, 2014, 11:42:04 PM
Thank you all for your comments!! The old Chevy sure grabbed my attention when we went in to shoot the 379 B-train, that was an attention grabber on it's own and then the bonus!! Who knows how long they have been sitting there, never been in that lot before!

Charlie: I did mention for her to shoot the 359 as she was busy talking..........good thing it wasn't TOO important what she was saying........need I say more?? :o Mostly she shoots away and she usually has a sharp eye out spotting some that I miss.

Hanky: I suppose that's possible too yet, never even gave that any thought, batteries dieing in the cold, fortunately it was jut hovering around the freezing point but it sure felt colder!!

Gerard, I see you capture them often, I really don't know how many trucks they have but they have a lot of cool stuff! I haven't found their yard yet while roaming around in Mission.

Good eye Rob, never noticed the plates hanging off the front of the old tilt cab, maybe he was a bed bugger in the day, when I get back up there I'll try to catch some latest dates those plates were from.

Jim

Going into the city of Vancouver on a Saturday doesn't always make for a lot of pictures but this trip was OK really!
First up is this Western Star with m/t container chassis
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket083/001_zpsd6a7e3cf.jpg)
then this sharp FLD 120 Classic that belongs to Ocean Prince Seafood, Vancouver
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket083/002_zps6182697b.jpg)
close up of this sharp truck
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket083/003_zps98f6926b.jpg)
a few trucks from the Movie Industry right downtown, Canada Place-with the white roof peaks- is in the background beside CPR building, the Holland American Cruise ships make this a port of call here in the summer months
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket083/013_zps44828b11.jpg)
another FLB on a side street downtown where a movie is being shot. I'm not really a fan of that light post either ::)
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket083/015_zps9b63021f.jpg)
here are two views of Ocean Cement, Granville Island Cement doing a pour in downtown. They have a batch plant right on Granville Island, just before you enter the  downtown core
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket081/010_zpsefa60231.jpg)
it was so dark already with all the rain that day i decided to use the flash for another shot
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket083/011_zpsf8d6a96b.jpg)
then this Northstar Peterbilt Heavy Haul came around the corner m/t, I think he just dropped off another excavator at a construction site a block away
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket083/016_zps4c5eff3f.jpg)
a Peterbilt 386 caught today in Langley from Holten Transportation of Aurora, Ontario, missed him yesterday coming into town with a matching trailer
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket082/003_zpsfad36734.jpg)

Bonus Shot:
Here is a view of the Port Of Vancouver , the container cranes in the background with the CPR rail yard in view, North Vancouver is across the water. Taken beside the beautifully restored CPR building which houses the SeaBus terminal now, a passenger ferry service across to North Van and back. One had just come in after putting the camera away.
The SkyTrain also has a stop here and is the end of the line; it then switches tracks, and head the other way

I know it isn't the weekend but today was a good day for a few shots, the wifey captured a beauty in Pt Kells, yes I've thanked her- and I've caught a cool little unit in South Surrey!
First Judi's pretty purple Peterbilt in Pt Kells
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket087/20140116_142423_zpsed5fa4f6.jpg)

That k100 for sale and the Wi900 behind the fence are impressive. I find it interesting seeing a fish hauler from the other end of the country.

As did I Lee, I seen the truck in the side street, wife was driving, I said we NEED to go around the block-not an easy block but we did get back to it! When I read the name on the side of the truck I thought of you right away! There must be more trucks out here, just gotta find them! I think they are more north toward Prince Rupert though, might just have to be a road trip for this summer!

Not much activity this past week or this weekend but I did catch this very nice Peterbilt 377 with an Able Sleeper unit. This truck is a '92 and sure looks great in the sun.
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket099/001_zpsc412f813.jpg)

Nice series.  I like a lot the last pic with the mountains in the background. I like too this paint pattern on the Western Star. I  remember , years ago, a trucks from Abbotsford BC with a look alike paint job.  It was a Classic leased to Ulster Transport if my memory is right.

Went on a Valentine getaway-yeah, wifey took me to a cabin on the island for a nice long weekend; it was great, caught some pics along the way too! Boarding the ferry from Twsawwassen (Vancouver) Terminal to Schawartz Bay (Victoria), we got onto one of the largest and newest ones, the Coastal Celebration. Not seeing much in the holding lot, didn't think there was that much truck traffic boarding but being Thursday, it was surprising when we went to the lower deck:
this was my favorite on as we entered, Island Asphalt Paving Western Star B-Train tanker-I'm guessing he was m/t but there was a bit of crude oil odor on the deck
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Island%20Trip%20Feb%202014/013_zps8af4974b.jpg)

BC Transit has several of these double decker buses in the Victoria region, don't know if it is just for the old nostalgic part of Victoria but they are Dennison buses that were added about 10 years ago?

The wind was blowing so hard there, we then boarded the ferry a few hrs later and it was a rough sailing, Captain's instruction were to remain seated, walk only if you have to which prompted us not to explore the truck deck. I think there were only 2 bobtail trucks along with a few BC Fwerry shunt trucks as posted on the e first run.

Not much to report this week, caught a few along the way some right near me, a wintery scene out the back door of the shop from last weekends snowfall
http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket119/003_zps9689ecd1.jpghttp://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket119/003_zps9689ecd1.jpg
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket114/001_zps0892f6e4.jpg)
then this (I think) C500 KW crane truck was dropping off some storage cans out front of where I work
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket116/002_zps7bcba944.jpg)
zoomed in on a pair of T800 KW's in Surrey, also close to work
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket119/003_zps9689ecd1.jpg)
today caught this KW900L in Pt Kells from Sleipner Transport, Anchorage Alaska
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket117/007_zpsd2e1f1a9.jpg)

BONUS SHOT:
after the snow, the weeds and brush flattened out a bit revealing this cool old early KW of early 60's vintage. I have been eyeballing this unit for years but never had a open look like this, I nabbed it while I could

Took a drive out this weekend to Aldergrove, this fine 386 from Champs Mushrooms awaits a load at their processing plant
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket122/020_zpsc16bdc82.jpg)
along with this Cascadia from the same, note the stretched out tandems on the 53'
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket122/021_zpsc791ceb6.jpg)
an older FLD 120 Classic still in service @ Aldergrove
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket122/022_zpsbba57b35.jpg)
then up to the North Eastern part of Langley called Gloucester industrial park to find a new KW-not sure what model # this is- destined for Magnum Concrete Kask Bros. Ready Mix, Div. of LaFarge-thanks Triple Ace- by the looks of the colours
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket121/027_zps6f3b2b6d.jpg)
Lafarge is getting a whole whack of these same units, all found at Inland Kenworth
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket122/026_zpsf6600e47.jpg)
there was a pair of these newer looking Raja B-train side dumps, one hooked into this Pinnacle
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket122/024_zps392f9180.jpg)
the other set hooked up into a Cascadia. I think it says Ahloe-Mist(?) on the door of the tractors
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket122/023_zps01d461a6.jpg)
then on to Ft Langley to find a pair of units for the  Movie Industry, an odd 88" cab IH 9670 set back COE likely a generator set up
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket123/030_zpsaf4147b5.jpg)
and this FL70 what might have been a Penske unit is now with Behind The Times Productions of Vancouver BC
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket123/031_zps4cc9f239.jpg)
over to Langley (Pt Kells) to find a Coronado SD tridem chemical tanker rolling up to a 3 way stop
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket123/033_zpsf4bb3c43.jpg)
at the S&R Sawmills, a couple of wood chip haulers, Arrow Transport on the lift with the Western Star tractor on the ground-usually they leave them hooked up, he must be a little bit too long- as Vedder waits behind
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket123/034_zps388b6a12.jpg)
zoomed in on this fine ex Clark Freightways Peterbilt 379 that Judi believes is on with Overland West as a city unit
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket123/032_zpsc9b63739.jpg)
the last one of the weekend, another FLD 120 Classic found in Langley, protected by a fenced compound
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket123/035_zps658b09f8.jpg)

Tried posting a few randoms on the weekend, got everything ready and then it wouldn't post, bummer! Here we go again, first, a four pack from Judi
this is a new Coronado from one of the OO where she works, setting out on the maiden voyage
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket125/20140311_222400_zps30a1e58f.jpg)
this is a new OO going out with a not new truck, a 379 ready for the night moves, still a very good clean looking truck!
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket125/20140310_195241_zpsfecc1b1e.jpg)
my favorite she took is this Lonestar at Harbour IH Truck Sales Pt kells with the dealership in the background,
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket125/20140312_182046_zps19b81725.jpg)
then this Peterbilt @ the dealer in Pt Kells is awaiting some repair
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket125/20140312_175701_zpsb1d65223.jpg)
then on to some I took along the way in the area
this nice CH Mack has On Time Transport on the side, seems very much like a division of Ocean Transport
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket133/002_zpsf02cd25c.jpg)
this is why I have that hunch, hangin out with cousins from Ocean
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket127/005_zps54736162.jpg)
sharp looking W900 I caught on the weekend in Langley, looked like a new truck, had a dealer plate on it from Ontario
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket129/009_zps7de33e11.jpg)
a look at the side, odd thing on the muffler heat shield is the script OCULUS??
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket130/010_zpsa99c7974.jpg)
here is an M2 Freightliner making a career out of hauling pallets
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket130/013_zps347f8b42.jpg)
in Aldergrove, Alliance Concrete Pumpers installs these pumper on various chassis, here is a pair for LaFarge, didn't know they had their own pumpers.
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket130/017_zps9adcd00e.jpg)
both mounted on the Mack chassis, one is a twin steer while the other is not, a lighter duty
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket130/020_zps50235d65.jpg)
and is a pink M2 in the works, pretty wild
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket130/018_zps4368e328.jpg)
and an new SD waiting for a pumper, most of the others there were Mack
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket130/019_zps0f193c1a.jpg)

More to come.

Wow, wow, wow! Very impressive series! Those newer Kenworth mixers a little further up are W900S's, interesting to see them in a twin steer configuration. I also like that new LoneStar, and those new concrete pumpers. That pink one is very wild for sure.

Here are the last of this weekend, a well worked Peterbilt 378 i kind of a neat colour
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket132/001_zpsc64510fd.jpg)
a Western Star roll off chassis looks to be on guard, watching my every move
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket131/022_zps3e3b3f74.jpg)
for those who like Volvo's, here the the defunct flagship, a VT880 employed by Driving Force of Langley loaded with lumber on B-train flat decks taken in Aldergrove
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket131/021_zpsd0a7746f.jpg)
a very clean Ford F700 dumper of mid 80's vintage looks to have original paint on it
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket131/024_zps5c2ed8fa.jpg)

Bonus shot:
Why not throw in the is old double decker bus for good measure appears never to have been on the road here in BC. It says Metro London on the side along with "Octopus's Garden, Restaurant & Lounge" in the advertisement block, that should get you humming that classic little ditty!! I'd like to be..........under the sea...........

You could be right, I'm not familiar with that company. I looked at their web site and it makes good sense, even a Div. of LaFarge, I changed it on the picture, thanks!

Post by: JJG on March 30, 2014, 10:27:04 PM
Only a fw shots this past week
Judi caught this one, it was posted in the "picture of the day", a new Peterbilt 386 fro CNTL
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket135/20140327_173119_zps8174ff7e.jpg)
this fine looking Kenworth W900 of mid 80's vintage has been sitting here for many years now, can't get close to it as it is way back in a deep lot with a gate, looks as though there are small trees growing between the tractor and trailer?
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket137/006_zps2e5003c1.jpg)
also in Langley this FLD 120 is for sale with a custom grille, I can zoom in the the phone # should anyone have interest
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket138/009_zps8ee3061d.jpg)
sharp looking KW T800 from Jim of Kim-can't see the first letter- Johnson Trucking of Kamlloops
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket138/010_zps654118ea.jpg)
I have posted one of these Sterling's before but was able to get a better shot-less fence this time, standing in the box of my pickup could get this view-one of Vancouver Ready Mix's tri-drive mixers in Langley
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket138/011_zpsddff1e9e.jpg)
maybe a better view

Title: Re: RANDOM SHOTS FROM BC
Post by: Triple Ace on March 31, 2014, 06:14:58 PM
No problem. Yes When I tend to drive out to Abbotsford I don't see them as much. They are quite a large company as Lafarge has bought them out but, they deliver more in the city. On the other hand Vancouver Ready Mix have started popping out everywhere
Title: Re: RANDOM SHOTS FROM BC

This morning, my son Jamie went off to the Island to do some work, he caught this cool Ranger Transport KW T800 haevy haul waiting to board the Nanaimo bound ferry
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket139/photo_zps1ea0c0fb.jpg)
took a nice shot of the load too, a Hitachi Tree Harvester destined for the Island
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket141/photo_zps1a664508.jpg)
then I caught a few randoms from Langley
a clean looking T800 from Cloverdale Industrial Coatings
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket140/014_zps49447807.jpg)
pulling a tridem box
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket140/015_zps36a15438.jpg)
then a Peterbilt 367(?) straight truck tanker from Petro Canada
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket140/019_zps7a5a627d.jpg)
former Allied Auto Carriers is who this FLD120 Classic hauls cars for, can't quite make out the name on it now. Thanks to Triple Ace who identified it as Jack Cooper.
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket140/021_zps17049db1.jpg)
speaking of Vancouver Ready Mix, here is another one, a KW coming back to the Langley
plant
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket140/024_zps5a713e0c.jpg)
this one snuck up on me, too bad as I would have loved to get him from the front, an FLB from Vanderveen Hay Sales, not too many in BC with 60" spread axles
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket140/012_zpsbb38e26d.jpg)
I was able to zoom in after as he had a red light, very sharp clean unit

Great shots the double decker would be new to London Transport the YF in registration registered by London County Council. It is a AEC Routemaster some of these were that well serviced that they worked for over 30 years. Just some useless information from some one who knows nothing about bus,s.  PS dont tell anyone about this.   Bob.

Thanks for your comments guys.

This past weekend, wife and I took a drive through the newly opened Perimeter Rd, aka HWY 17 West, which takes you from the TCH, HWY 1, exits @ HWY 15 (176 Street) and goes west through Surrey, Delta and ends at the ferry terminal @ Tswassen, (part of Delta) and connects Delta Port, a container facility and the coal docks aka Roberts Bank. Beginning at the eastern part, here is an LTS Ford at a condo construction project
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket147/020_zps68ab307f.jpg)
then, down the hill to the river, CN container yard is the first stop, coming round the bend is an FLD Classic XL, unknown
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket147/017_zps2fbf4e69.jpg)
then a look at the terminal
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket147/018_zps025b1392.jpg)
even on the weekend there are plenty of CNTL trucks using the new road.
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket144/20140406_162908_zps77399174.jpg)
this is at the very most western point of the CN Port, a group of CNTL trucks parked working this end, this whole route follows the river making for some interesting scenes
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket148/045_zpsfec84c5a.jpg)

(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket148/047_zpsc130224f.jpg)
a 379 Peterbilt with some tricked out items follows an F150 equally tricked out in the industrial river front region, several lumber mills here.
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket148/044_zps863f642f.jpg)

(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket144/20140406_161652_zps58881bb9.jpg)
a semi retired IH Cargostar of 80's vintage might still supply fuel to several industrial diesel or gas powered units in the complex

That terminal has always been quite large, they have a lot of prime river front land there, container traffic is up everywhere in North America and this being a Pacific Port, is busy. Prince Rupert to the north is expanding hugely as it is a more direct lane for Asia.

The weekend is at hand and I haven't even finished last weeks catches. Before getting to those last few pictures, between the east and west part of the CN rail yards, the Pt Mann bridge crosses the Fraser River from Surrey to Pt Coquitlam. In the forefront is the old structure-being dismantled-with the new completed bridge in the background. It is toll bridge with 5 lanes each direction and certainly  has improved traffic flow into Vancouver town. Most are not happy with the toll.

  Continuing down river, Amix Recyclers have a depot on the water, here are a few of the trucks found at this terminal, a CL 700 Mack and a T800 KW
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket149/049_zpsa0f2b7d7.jpg)
an FLD SD and a Peterbilt are also part of the fleet, they don't seem to favor any one make of truck really
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket149/051_zpsac2ff371.jpg)
near the west end of the CN terminal is the next bridge crossing the river, it is the very aging Pattullo bridge; pair of CN trucks making the  crossing, it is a no toll crossing so it is getting used more then the traffic planners would like to see.

while HWY 17 connects to 17 on the Island at Tswassen Ferry Terminal. one of the last exits is Delta Port Way, which takes you to a container shipping Port and the Roberts Bank Coal Terminal, this is one view of it, coal is railed in on gondolas from BC interior and Alberta, transferred onto ships crossing the Pacific

Transchem was a local company which shares space where my shop is. I have captured various equipment from them over the years. Recently they were bought out by Quality Carriers of PQ. A few other trucks have appeared over time, this one I think Gerard has caught in Quebec some time ago?
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket151/153_zps3a3e5724.jpg)
Today was a nice day so I went over to take a few pictures of this nice truck
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket151/106_zpse07b7f87.jpg)
and this is one added recently too, looks familiar but I don't know its origin. A 378 Peterbilt looks fine after a bath

Great pics!! I see a Mack daycab in the CN yard! 8) And speaking of CN, I caught my first CN locomotive yesterday down here in PA. I'm starting to take more interest in trains as of late, and I've learned those "flat style" locomotives are called "slugs". They stay in train yards, and merely provide extra power for moving cars around.

Post by: JJG on April 13, 2014, 10:37:36 PM
Thanks Rob, do you still see it? I thought -when it was Transchem at least- they ran northern BC mostly.

Gerard: That's it, couldn't think of the carrier. The other one that came to mind was Audec-or something like that- but they are red/silver?

Dave: Thanks for the heads up on the slug! I'm also not much of a train guys but do enjoy snooping around yards, don't know too much about terminology on them!

Triple Ace, where do you scale @ the Perimeter Road?

there seems to be more then one of these Cascadia short hood/bunk trucks running around here for Canada Cartage, I kinda like the look, nice in blue now after seeing so many in white. I think this one is hauling for McGavin's Bread.

Drove past this Coronado earlier going the opposite direction in the vehicle, figured it would be better to snap off the bridge on a bike ride which we did next, coming down the bridge, the truck had moved, best I could get of him!! I think he is new with Trton, hopefully works out of Langley, stand a chance to catch him again.

Yeppers Jim; Ontario Potato out of Alliston.
Enjoyed the picture of Roberts Bank; lots of coal still going somewhere to be burned.
Some interesting trucks out your way.
Canada cartage acquired a BC carrier to expand there.
"the 2009 acquisition of Cur-Quin Delivery Systems in Vancouver gave Canada Cartage fleet coverage and facilities from British Columbia to Quebec, providing national customers with reliable, consistent service across the country."
I enjoy your Vancouver pictures - keep 'em coming.

Thanks Rob for that info! I did not know that C. C. bought out Cur-Quin, they still haven't changed much of that Company, just needed an "in" I guess and in they are! They took over all of Safeway (BC anyway) and have 2 dist. centers here already!

On Good Friday, we threw our bicycles in the back of the pick up, drove back out to Perimeter Rd so we could bike and shoot, trying to get closer in on the river industry. While this excursion did not get us much activity there,-we couldn't bike along the area downstream. Later we drove further down again and seen an area to bike, next time I guess- we did get some exercise and enjoyed the sun of the day. These  2 Century Freightliners parked in this are remind of J.E. Fortin of PQ but not sure if they are ex tractors of them
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket158/008_zps1fd9b02d.jpg)

That's it Gerard, without a doubt, ex Fortin!! I figured the black & white stripe separating the 2 colours was a decal, I zoomed in on my picture and you can see the ghost decal stripe midway the colours! Thanks, when I seen them that came to mind first, I figured you likely would confirm it with the picture..........and you did!! :)

Thanks Jimmy! When we first came out of the shop thru the door visible in the picture, the driver had just off loaded the pallet with his pallet jack, I went for my camera but he had gone into the back room of Tim's by that time. We hung out for another 5-10 minutes but he did not return! I do like action shots too!

We ended up in Abbottsford again on Sunday, just starting out as getting gas in Aldergrove as it is cheaper there, we then drive around burning off all our savings but then that's what is all about right, freedom?? Abbottsford first, to m/t the tank, then fill on way home in Aldegrove.
before going there we did spot this fine KW W900L gravel truck grabbing a coffee in Langley
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket189/002_zpscea7bf51.jpg)
then we headed to Abbottsford where, just west of, on a farm, sits this well worked RD Mack tanker
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket189/003_zpsc21b17e1.jpg)
to Ulster/Maywood, where the KW W900 is home for the weekend
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket189/004_zps7f46d59b.jpg)

(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket189/008_zpsf1044994.jpg)
here we found a Peterbilt possum belly at the sales barn
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket189/012_zps228d5e14.jpg)
and then up the road, buddy has his Peterbilt centered nicely in this barn
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket189/006_zpsa815792f.jpg)
this guy, with his T800, maybe give him a B+ for being near centre to the tanker, oh wait, I may have been able to centre it, the photographer is to blame?
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket189/005_zps5490d2c1.jpg)

(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket189/010_zpsda495b49.jpg)

(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket190/014_zpsc14af669.jpg)
see, it is a T660
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket190/015_zpsc2568757.jpg)
then over to Aldergrove to "fill er up" and on to town to check out Alliance, this Freightliner Tri-drive M2 may have been the truck in progress we posted a few weeks earlier, now ready for delivery
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket190/019_zps34acc356.jpg)

colorful set, 2 Turk Volvo's with a very green unknown Century in the middle.
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket001/028_zps8c0e4343.jpg)
there was another Turk Volvo in behind.

The Bonus Shot:
Now this may not qualify as a truck to all, but, it is a delivery vehicle and therefore gets the slot. A Citroen 2CV- I think- "cube van"

these shots are taken while waiting for 10 minutes for an estimate in Langley at a small industrial area, a Marpole Freightliner Columbia from the Island (I think, at least Marpole is from there) with a very mixed load of building materials
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket001/012_zps264a4b78.jpg)
then a Peterbilt 379 day cab that looks great, usually see him hauling cedar wood on this fine B-train flat deck
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket001/007_zps8a94b733.jpg)
this fine 2nd gen Volvo caught my attention waiting to pass thru the intersection, from Driving Force, with a load of pipe, most likely from Ipex.

a T800 dump truck faded from red to pinkish tones has the ghost of Landscaping Depot on the door but is now employed by Countess Express
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket001/014_zps7f41a34b.jpg)
another one from Driving Force-they are just down the street- an all flat deck company, this time a T800 with a load of steel rod
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket001/009_zps6b333066.jpg)
these next 2, Jeld-Wen Window and Doors may have been seeing whose route was a quicker way, this Columbia came from my right but the Cascadia was just one step behind coming from the above right. All depends on the traffic signal, if the light would have been green the Cascadia would have won!! Only my speculation-things a guy does while waiting ::)

Many interesting pics. I like the Plett Trucking Pete but I am not sure about the painted grille.  Nice catch of this little 2CV van.
Title: Re: RANDOM SHOTS FROM BC
Post by: JJG on June 22, 2014, 11:54:01 PM
Thanks guys!

Gerard:, the painted grille on the 386 is actually a bug screen, it does look like a red painted grille though doesn't it?

Here are a few we managed to get today, while getting a burger for lunch, this Canada Cartage IH 8600 makes its way back to MacGavin's Bakery-now Canada Bread, who just recently gave up their own trucks- C C took over
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket018/005_zps2135dafd.jpg)
while zoominig in on something else. this Peterbilt 387/587? from AirTime snuck up going pretty fast, just snapped him as is
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket018/008_zpseb9e8abe.jpg)
then we headed up to Pt Kells later and went down to this road were some trucks are often parked, didn't expect to see all these here but some really interesting units, one 389 from Downton's I hadn't seen since last summer
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket018/022_zpsaa8d1d2e.jpg)
a KW W900L loaded up with lumber waiting to unload
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket018/017_zps9e7f278b.jpg)
that wasn't the only W900, as this one was on the other side of the street
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket018/020_zpsb6229e44.jpg)
IH 9900i waiting at the front of the line
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket018/018_zps6bd90db2.jpg)
this outstanding VT880 was in the line up too
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket018/016_zpse922d52a.jpg)
over to the Chevron Fuel Stop in Langley (Pt Kells) this is part of the line up
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket019/024_zps0f4d13bd.jpg)
and a black 389 along with a yellow 379  on the other side
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket019/025_zpsee1e61a1.jpg)

Another look at this Downton's Curtain sider, it is very clean, not an easy task for a soft side

This one is actually a 388 that was converted to the car hauler hood and stance.   Plenty of work to achieve the look.  The truck left the factory as a standard slope hood 388.  The hood was reworked with new car hauler panels, suspension lowered, etc.

All the Canada Cartage trucks catch my eye, especially with the Canada Bread trailer.

I haven't seen any Volvo's here Rob, they had a ton of the short nose Cascadia's all in white, now the IH 8600's are mostly blue.

OK, here is attempt #3 at posting this set, don't know why it failed 2X yesterday.

Was able to get away on a short vacation,we took a trip up to Prince Rupert, never been up there before and it was worth the drive, fantastic scenery!! I won't post all the pictures we took but hope to post enough to capture the moment, hope you enjoy!
The first part begins with familiar turf, the Canyon route as it is known following the TCH #1 Hwy to Cache Creek. Caught up to Bobell pulling an empty set of B-train trailers so he was doing a comfortable speed, follow him, get no tickets :)
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket001/002_zpsa772b85a.jpg)
there are a series of tunnels from Yale to Boston Bar, the first of which we see Bobell enter
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket001/003_zpsaae62298.jpg)
in the tunnel
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket001/004_zps975f1472.jpg)
and out of the tunnel
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket001/005_zps2a5f2bbe.jpg)
as we go down, a Peterbilt comes up
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket001/012_zpsbc46859c.jpg)
continuing down, another Peterbilt Chip Hauler climbs up
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket001/009_zps9da0882b.jpg)
more down, more up, this time an older COE Freightliner still getting it done well
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket001/007_zps30558832.jpg)
we came to a halt, summertime, construction and maintenance. How would you like these 2 jobs? Yes, there are 2 guys high up on the rock and on the fence.......my job doesn't seem too bad really ::)
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket001/021_zpsce45a2c6.jpg)
the paving crew is the other reason for the long single lane closure
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket001/025_zps0922dcba.jpg)
following the back log of traffic as it starts again
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket001/028_zps8bf56743.jpg)
a sharp Peterbilt loaded with B train flats surprises us as he rounds the bend hammer down to ascend
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket001/045_zps47f7a215.jpg)
a rest area between Boston Bar and Spences Bridge, a DC Chambers Chip Hauler of which there are many rolls on by
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket001/037_zps32ff6244.jpg)
and I wouldn't let this Classic XL drive by without shooting him
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket001/038_zpsa83f562e.jpg)
a lonely IH Prostar -just in case you think there are only Peterbilts running the canyon-looks rather small here in all this rock
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket001/040_zpsb1340c7a.jpg)
2 more Peterbilts hauling more lumber make an appearance
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket001/043_zps7a7a0122.jpg)
yeah, Peterbilt, B trains, lumber......between rest area and Spences Bridge
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket001/041_zpsdc9be4ed.jpg)
there IS a truck.....somewhere in this picture, the area changes drastically from lush vegetation to very dry around this part
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket001/059_zpscd49f123.jpg)
we keep going down and up comes another Pete
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket001/050_zps42970139.jpg)
as we climb, this FLD 120 descends making no mistake as he rounds the bend causing some body roll, easier to do m/t
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket001/058_zpsebb31ffb.jpg)
we pulled off here in Spences Bridges, dry, looking for drink but this is a ghost town! Took a pic of this Pacific and carried on
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket001/062_zpsdc06047b.jpg)
next stop, Cache Creek, time for lunch......AND drink, this Kal Tire truck is making a delivery at a Kal Tire Store
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket001/071_zpsd2b1ee56.jpg)

this is a busy spot, the TCH heads east from this point and we now go north on HWY 97

before setting out again, this KW logger was also taking a break here
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket001/074_zpsf6676c09.jpg)
north to Clinton, a shoot on the fly
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket001/090_zpsbc2e2f81.jpg)
a rain storm put the kibosh on the next few shots, passing by 70 Mile House and then it cleared again to catch this fine Coronado from Overland West-where Judi works- coming out of 100 Mile House
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket001/094_zpseebde87e.jpg)
seeing as there is a Tim Horton,s here, first one past Hope, it was necessary to take advantage, the next shots all taken @ 100 Mile House
cool way to travel
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket001/096_zps3679d047.jpg)
do accept my apologies, that dash board of a Camaro goes on forever, difficult to zoom and catch the action, Judi does it better then I really.
a pair of Ford Loiusvilles
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket001/100_zpsf9315377.jpg)
Ryler Bulk is a common sight in this region
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket001/097_zps5b9ccb68.jpg)
Kenworth seems to be the choice here with one bulldog hangin out
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket001/101_zpsfdddc312.jpg)
then at 108 Mile, we seen this B Model Mack in a barn at a museum, there is also a rest area here were a few shots are taken
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket001/102_zps6b265190.jpg)
another Overland West, Judi shreaks with excitement when she see's one
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket001/105_zpse0b9e364.jpg)
I'll never turn down a Classic XL
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket001/107_zpsb819a30b.jpg)
I thought this logger was coming into the rest area but the road continued in behind which is were he went
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket001/109_zpsec46d443.jpg)
spotted this Vic Hoskin's Peterbilt just before Williams Lake
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket001/111_zpsbf78e7e3.jpg)
at the Husky in Williams Lake, another rain shower but didn't wash this shot out completely
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket001/118_zps6e52cbb3.jpg)
this is a very nice town, great landscape. taking a break will continue more.

this one was just outstanding, looks to be in pretty good condition, sure would have been a classy unit in it's youth, still is!

this sharp Lonestar is at a dealer

now, off to some territory new to us, we'd been to P.G. before but not beyond, heading west on HWY 16 towards Prince Rupert. The drive between here and Smithers does not offer the spectacular Canyon route excitement,  rolling hills with curves and trees, nice lakes though but long distance between civilization These first shots are between P.G. and Fraser Lake another Excel with a  live floor trailer this time
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket001/183_zps0af79420.jpg)
there were several of these in the region, oversize lumber loads??? I asked about it and they run from one mill to another keeping the boards apart for drying to be packed and bundled later for transport to urban areas

Another nice series of trucks in action. I like this Clark Freightway FLD 120. There is something old fashioned and classic in it. This CN beast have kept his winter bra . I love too the bonus shot.

Jim, a nice tour of that area of BC. I've seen reports on riding the VIA Rail "Skeena" train through that area and railfans chasing on Highway 16 through the Yellowhead but little on the truck traffic.
Thanks for traveling there for those of us who can't.

Thanks guys, glad you're enjoying them! I could make a living doing this.........in nice weather of course!! I have heard the winters are nasty up that way!

Here are a few from Smithers, last ones of the evening with the sun set, it was still light @ 10:45, looking southwest. Terex is a strong truck, even carries a mountain ::)
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket001/253_zps55fc1205.jpg)
looking north, this Peterbilt was waiting to dock at the Post Office
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket001/248_zpsfaf0512e.jpg)
then , next morning, away and westbound to Prince Rupert, a breath taking drive to say the least! Near the junction of HWYs 37N & 16W, we stopped to take a look. A jake brake broke the sound of silence, music to my ears really and this Western Star appeared out of the woods on a logging road, he turned west and down the hill he went
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket001/257_zps3246ba83.jpg)
zooming out, this Cascadia rounds the bend climbing up
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket001/258_zps81c75228.jpg)
close up of the Cascadia, looks to be Casey's of Abbotford

(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket001/260_zps96469bb5.jpg)
as we  enter Terrace, a busy town that seems to be doing well with mining in the region, a Western Star is taking on lunch
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket001/264_zps4053cb19.jpg)
Tim Horton's is in Terrace so we took on lunch here as Bandstra is doing P&D with the little binder
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket001/265_zps5a683a25.jpg)
continuing on the journey, between Terrace and Prince Rupert, a Freightliner Classic looks just fine going E.B.
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket001/301_zps105e94d6.jpg)
self explanatory?
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket001/271_zps05c7503e.jpg)
too bad about the glare but still, what can you say
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket001/280_zps68b03895.jpg)
the propane needs to be delivered here too and Superior is up for the challenge using a KW T800 to make it happen
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket001/273_zps14e341ba.jpg)
I wanted a truck, a train and scenery, well 2 of 3 is good
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket001/283_zps26cc8452.jpg)
OK, I got a 3 out 3, L.G........life's good!!
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket001/284_zps6861282a.jpg)
I have nothing to say
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket001/274_zpsc59cf913.jpg)
another view point/rest area, then this logger rolled up
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket001/287_zps8976adf5.jpg)
now as luck would have it, he entered on in to the rest area
a Peterbilt 367 tri-drive tridem, Judi said to the driver, " wow, you get to do this everyday"?, he just smiled and said " I guess so"!! He knows that winter is just past!!!
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket001/289_zpsc2b2d3b3.jpg)
and that's what you see on HWY 16 west!!
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket001/294_zpsb98b2915.jpg)
away he goes, shifting like a pro!
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket001/297_zps49349676.jpg)
and we continue, now if you're going to snooze, wouldn't this just be the ticket?
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket001/313_zps1467c160.jpg)
Prince Rupert, port of! This is it!
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket001/318_zpsa38de61e.jpg)
this is the fishing dock area, this Prostar ICE truck from Kamloops was off loading here

(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket001/324_zps9b309e6f.jpg)
D&N Seafood is a local from Prince Rupert, they have some nice trucks, this is the Coronado, they have white trailers with a blue stripe mid way, didn't get the chance to catch one
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket001/333_zpsaf701cc0.jpg)
I guess I kinda caught one, 2 more of the 4 in total, not sure if the 4th one is out on a run
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket001/334_zps2aa42434.jpg)
here is an older Western Star dump with trailer
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket001/335_zpsecd67d2b.jpg)
there is a major container port here, it is the shortest route from Asia and it has the flattest rail line to the interior of BC and on to Alberta. Still, it is no where as large as any of the Vancouver Ports This is one view of the port
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket001/325_zpse22e8635.jpg)

I wonder if this guy hauls fresh fish?
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket001/327_zps3ddd576f.jpg)

Back to Terrace, another train going the other way now
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket001/337_zps0c81ab73.jpg)
I know this is about trucks..........but........I thought it too be quite spectacular.......like the epitome of model railroading?
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket001/341_zps0985bad6.jpg)
in Kitimat we find a KW dump combo
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket001/343_zps46299127.jpg)
and a heavy duty Coroando SD tri-drive vaccuum tank

(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket001/348_zpsae545f21.jpg)
a pair of Cargostar IH trucks, and that about did it for the town of Kitimat!
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket001/349_zpsb7854b08.jpg)
then back to Terrace and on to Smithers were we spent the night again. The next day before leaving town we checked it out again, out to the airport to find this scene
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket001/361_zps41a8e789.jpg)
out of the airport, this view came in, waited about 3 minutes to catch a truck going by-just to make it a post-able pics on the Forum ::)
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket001/362_zps1c5a68a4.jpg)
back into town for the last of these, a view one would see each day living in this town
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket001/359_zpsb484b2cc.jpg)
same place, same time- or 30 seconds later- different Pete
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket001/360_zps076d7c2e.jpg)
then at the Post Office, we had parked here to walk around, this Mack Granite rolled right up into my lens
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket001/365_zpsefec85da.jpg)
the last one from here, an old GMC 8500 of the 70's is still working as a yard goat, the name on the door says Doc's Cartage & Storage, Terrace BC. Wonder if they still exist.
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket001/354_zps4a30b09d.jpg)

Pretty hilly and winding?

Post by: JJG on July 05, 2014, 11:27:05 PM
Thanks guys!

Actually surprising how straight and level the road to Kitimat is Rob, you would think being a coastal region like that  it would be very curvy and mountainous, a few curves and hills but nothing serious.

Spending a lot of the day in Smithers we decided to set out and get as far as Vanderhoof, that was a shorter day but staying in P.G. was pushing it on a Friday heading into a long weekend, found a great place to stay that so it was worth it.
Somewhere near Burns Lake we made a pit stop at a rest area, this Peterbilt now has a load of lumber quite possible from a mill in Houston, that was the one we caught in Smithers earlier
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket001/369_zpsf111ca3a.jpg)
here is one captured coming thru Burns Lake, a neat old Ford Louisville Concrete pump
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket001/374_zpsdd81f91b.jpg)
couldn't let this old Pacific dump truck go by, not the best shot
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket001/371_zpsb7261bc8.jpg)
nearing Vanderhoof, this farm scene, zoom, point and shoot on the fly
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket001/381_zpsa85f3ff2.jpg)
this Western Star logger has some wide bunks on it
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket001/379_zps0f3063d2.jpg)
I thought this Peterbilt 378 logger was kind of cool with the painted bumper, gives it a whole different look
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket001/378_zps77a27eac.jpg)
FLD 120 with a tridem live floor somewhere between Burns Lake and Vanderhoof
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket001/373_zps05388f77.jpg)
then in Vanderhoof, this Western Star dump goes by and we call it a day.

I zoomed in on that picture Rob as I was curious too, it says Eddie Bell, Bell Four Enterprises, Lilloet BC on the door? It is plated and has water jets on the front as though it may be for watering on road projects? No placards on the tank so it may be just that. Big tank.

I agree with Rob that Kenworth W900 A real nice ! nice quantity of parked  Freightliner Coe behind fences out there, some in decent shape. The Western Star real dark blue white stripes in Terrace looks to be from the company that provided the show Western Star w/ matching wagon that appeared in the music video by: Theory of a Deadman "nothing could come between us". I may never get out that way so is nice to see some of the scenic country side there, looks real nice !

Thanks again for all the comments guys, glad you are enjoying them, it certainly is nice country!!

Just going off track here for a set from today, this is at the BC BIG RIG Show 2014. We were not likely able to go initially since we had the grand kids over for the weekend, when daughter came to pick them up, I mentioned I had planned on taking the little guy and they all agreed we should so late for  the show but still interesting finds, these are the highlights of the show. It was a bit different as it was an outdoor/indoor event this year for the first time, not so bad as it rained, not so great for indoor pics, some better then others but here we go.
this is a T800  from Ridge Lowboy Service with a TigerCat tree harvester, looked very impressive
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket033/023_zps36911d51.jpg)
a 1954 LT Mack from the Island
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/BC%20Big%20Rig%202013/011_zpsa7ebc33b.jpg)
I have not ever seen this W900L before from Yarrow BC, looks like it may haul fish as it has a tank on the rear of the trailer
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/BC%20Big%20Rig%202013/010_zpsc5aed873.jpg)
Custom needlenose Pete, has a 1967 BC Plate on it, maybe it is actually a 1967.
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/BC%20Big%20Rig%202013/068_zps1816b259.jpg)
I believe this is a 1960 Dodge D700 tractor
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/BC%20Big%20Rig%202013/017_zps1f82fd99.jpg)
I've been snooping around Ulster Transport's yard (John Maywood Trucking) in Abbottsford lately in search of cool trucks which they have several of, this is a new one, pretty colourful Western Star that caught my attention
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/BC%20Big%20Rig%202013/014_zps88a3943f.jpg)
happy to see this Ulster out from under the canopy- caught him before from front view only- all shined up and show worthy, hooked into a sharp tridem stepdeck trailer
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/BC%20Big%20Rig%202013/034_zpsa0ebef4c.jpg)
something very different
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/BC%20Big%20Rig%202013/050_zps8f455107.jpg)
first time I see this fine Coronado from Moznik (BSM) Trucking
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/BC%20Big%20Rig%202013/037_zps56d12bea.jpg)

(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/BC%20Big%20Rig%202013/063_zps16e84d3c.jpg)
B-73 Mack, sweet little unit, maybe it's the lighting inside here but this did not come up clear form either side I shot it
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/BC%20Big%20Rig%202013/060_zps75603094.jpg)
a Hayes made it to the indoor section keeping dry
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/BC%20Big%20Rig%202013/036_zps00208bb5.jpg)

Hank was at the show so he will have a great coverage on all the units there, Sunday afternoon is not the best time as many are already gone to make a living.

Nice coverage for a quick visit. I like the coverage of new and old trucks but  old irons  are my favorites with the Mack LT at first place.

Thanks for the comments guys!

First, a few of the show-talking about the old trailer leads me to these and then go back to the trip!

The old Trailmobile "Hayes" trailer usually is pulled by a Hayes but this year the first for the old Mack I think! As we wandered around, he fired up the Mack and backed up
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/BC%20Big%20Rig%202013/030_zpsdcc617eb.jpg)
then headed out , sounded very good
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/BC%20Big%20Rig%202013/031_zps0b1061c6.jpg)
I guess I didn't catch as much of the trailer as I thought! Have to check last years pics

Then this polished up KW needle nose from Captain Crunch that was interesting
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/BC%20Big%20Rig%202013/008_zps85ef5067.jpg)
well they all are really but back to Prince George we go!

It had turned to rain so no pictures on the fly were taken from Vanderhoof to P.G. Then @ the Husky in P.G. we captured this Overland West Cascadia
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket001/390_zps4a0ac13d.jpg)
the Chevron had this KW parked so we took a shot
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket001/386_zps28745ede.jpg)
there was an identical colored Peterbilt at the fuel Island but he was on with CNTL, photo didn't turn out so no post!
Southbound on 97 to home,  :( Quesnell is next town where we nabbed this tanker going North
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket001/393_zps1f77d4bc.jpg)

(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket001/408_zps825cb2f1.jpg)
between 70 Mile House and Clinton, this zoom and shoot on the fly turned out OK really, cool scene with this fine FLC livestock combo and farm
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket001/410_zps54019f9f.jpg)
It's a Saturday afternoon and this lonely XTL Prostar sits at the Husky in Cache Creek
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket001/412_zps0655b18e.jpg)

(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket001/428_zps6acda102.jpg)
the tunnels begin, no trucks in sight, then rain and ugly! Put the camera away and head for home!
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket001/435_zps8505cc50.jpg)

A few random shots of the past few weeks mostly in the region of Langley/Surrey. To start with, Judi scored big with this catch at a Tire shop near where she works
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket002/20140709_170120_zps89cddad0.jpg)
here is another look at her catch of this sharp KW W900L and tridem stainless reefer with Ontario base plate
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket002/20140709_170135_zps9000d936.jpg)
Cardinal Boat Movers of North Vancouver came to pull a boat out of storage with his FLD112, I did not get a chance to catch him with the boat loaded as I got busy working and missed him leaving
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket002/001_zpsc0b18576.jpg)
this new built custom body is going to be mounted on a 5 ton chassis, he did not know what the truck was but he sandblasted the unit and it left on a deck truck
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket002/012_zpsfa614d85.jpg)
now it just so happens that the tow unit, a very clean Freightliiner M2 from Bayview Towing is the same one captured at the BC Big Rig Show-check Hank's pictures for details- it was so clean I asked her if I could shoot it she said yes! I then asked if it was at the show and again, yes!! Nice truck!
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket002/013_zps48588262.jpg)
Ritchie Smith Feeds brings feed to the animals on farms in this Peterbilt 3 axle feed tanker! I wonder if the livestock enjoy the delivery by Class?

Southbound on HWY 15 (176 Street), a block away from the USA, this Peterbilt tanker is about to return to US soil where he hails from

I have not seen this Volvo from Super Save before, clearly it is an older unit that has been on with them for years
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket002/012_zpsa6c67c1c.jpg)
I think Load Way is out of Alberta, this Prostar was taken at the Chevron Fuel Stop in Langley-Pt Kells
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket002/021_zps34caf099.jpg)
this is the whole unit
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket002/022_zps89649c86.jpg)
custom Pete 379 with a stainless tanker bodies
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket002/020_zpsc7f05d64.jpg)
across from the Chevron this Peterbilt from Shadow Lines
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket002/025_zpsb8dcc5d2.jpg)
hooked into a set of bullets, B-train dry bulk tankers
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket002/026_zps081d5f26.jpg)
and this sharp Volvo VT880-says Tatsu on the visor, same on door in different font- is behind the Shadow Lines
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket002/024_zpsf1384888.jpg)
this pair is waiting at CAT, my guess is they are CAT powered ::)
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket002/035_zpsc2cc8c77.jpg)
another one at the CAT dealer
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket002/034_zpsf7588b4d.jpg)
then down the road we find this Peterbilt 379 looking rather intimidating
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket002/019_zps3a4aeb06.jpg)
the driver- and I presume owner was sure proud that we were trying to get a picture of his truck, after getting ahead  of him, Judi zipped into a parking lot, I jumped out, aimed  and shot! There were 3 missed attempts prior to this catch- he was movin right a long, gearing up and rippin the horn cord, big wave!!
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket002/032_zpsef4626ab.jpg)
this is what he was pulling on  behind, a potent Vega race car

one shot during the week, they shoot a lot of movies or TV Production shows from this neighborhood, a White Volvo GMC and Freighliner COE are among a few of the trucks required
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket002/006_zpsb751d89d.jpg)

A couple short outings on the weekend, this lineup at a truck park in Abbottsford

(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket002/012_zps3525abd1.jpg)

back in Langley, Graestone runs a sharp fleet of mixers, this one is an older unit sitting on the ramp, just had to capture it! They always have them lined up in the evening and weekends hard to catch as the fence is in the way, This one is far enough back  for me to zoom the lens thru one of the links of the fence
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket002/015_zps14d2090d.jpg)
Pannu KW T600 was kind enough to let us go ahead of him turning left, we wanted to go back and shoot this next one

That 379 looks sharp,I wish Peterbilt would have done a 389 for their anniversary truck but unfortunately that is the future I guess.

I agree on the 579 being quite sharp, I thought the same Rob, too bad they didn't do up a 389 too! They showed a 1939 Pete in that scheme beside the 579 in an ad and that's when I hoped to see the 389 too!

I just noticed that 379 you commented on Rob is actually and X! I will add that to the description, and yes, nice clean truck, the right amount of bling to me!

The 579 Anniversary scheme takes its inspiration from the "1939" stake truck.

Sometimes you're just at the right place at the right time!! Sunday, just as we were going for a little drive, stopped in to grab a coffee to go and sitting at the drive thru, this comes by, I scrambled to grab the camera, he stopped on the side of the road to grab a cup to go! I would not have got this otherwise.
This is a Hayes that I have not seen before, the trailer he is pulling sure looks cool too, might be a fish hauler with the tank on the back
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket104/002_zps1f9f3538.jpg)
I just had to get another, it says "Keep It Cool" on the door but can't make out the smaller print
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket104/003_zpse47c7ecb.jpg)
and one more

going north to Pt Kells to see what's happening and caught this FLD 120, could use a little attention but still nice
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket104/006_zps16aaf08c.jpg)
this is a view of a Peterbilt tanker coming off the Golden Ears Bridge from Maple Ridge into Langley

over the bridge to Maple Ridge were this nicely appointed IH 7600 single axle sits behind the fence
I think the theme is chain link fences, here is a stone slinger mounted on a Peterbilt chassis
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket104/022_zps7876d6f8.jpg)

Been a few weeks since I added anything here, not much going on either but last Sunday, this fine Peterbilt 379 was at an industrial area in Langley
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket001/001_zps82748408.jpg)
took a drive to Hope to find around 13 Upstage Peterbilt's at the Flying J, someone important must have been comin into Vancouver town.
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket001/016_zps9e9ef786.jpg)
there was a mix between 386 and 579 models
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket001/017_zpsda235d02.jpg)
this oustanding bus was leaving the J just ahead of the Upstage convoy, not sure if it had any connection. One would think an artist requiring 13 truck loads to move would fly rather then bus?
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket001/019_zps30b997c2.jpg)
after that we grabbed some fast food and went to a park in Hope, zooming across thru the trees to the other end of the park is this scene, parked at a house
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket001/027_zpsb42d2ed0.jpg)
back this way last week, Walrus has more then one truck, here is a Peterbilt loading some structural steel
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket004/003_zps383ee137.jpg)
this CH Mack is an OO for Ocean Transport, I shot him here with a flat deck before with a different carrier name then. He also owns the Pinnacle in blue that he a driver on.

I missed that Hayes you caught in the earlier post,that is an awesome truck.Great catch!!.The black 379 in Langley is very sharp.The Upstage trucks were sitting at the Flying a couple weeks ago too.They were there for a few days then were gone.

Wife and I  just got back in from a late summer vacation! I have been across the province often from East to West and early summer did a Prince Rupert trip-new grounds covered- and this time we anted to cover some North South highways and regions in the Kootenay Mountain region! Now, I have heard a lot about this area and it does not disappoint, excellent trip, awesome weather, come on a long, you'll see!
You have to start from home of course, took the Coquihalla aka HWY#5 from Hope to Kamloops, from there to HWY 97 south to Vernon and that is where the "new" territory begins! First a few from Hope to Merritt # 5
a Coronado from Kal Tire just around the snow sheds
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/West%20Kootenay%202014/009_zps2b54a594.jpg)
Coronado B-train loaded with lumber NB on Hwy 5 at Logan Lake Exit
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/West%20Kootenay%202014/013_zps25d31d2b.jpg)
same spot, Western Star hauling plastic pipe
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/West%20Kootenay%202014/015_zpsb807373b.jpg)
SGT from PQ caught me of guard so I had to catch him from behind, SB Logan Lake
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/West%20Kootenay%202014/016_zps78081342.jpg)
moving right along here, a Peterbilt from Badger, Coquitlam, heads north on Hwy 97 near Falkland
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/West%20Kootenay%202014/018_zps72f5caee.jpg)
just north of Vernon, an IH 9900i is doing business with B-train curtain side
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/West%20Kootenay%202014/021_zps04e389cd.jpg)
in Vernon on 97, shot this fine Coronado
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/West%20Kootenay%202014/025_zpsf33991c1.jpg)
this is where we begin to explore, never having gone on Hwy 6 East from Vernon, it goes on this quiet long winding road to Needles, where this ferry takes us across Arrow Lake to Fauquier, likely a lot more traffic in holiday season
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/West%20Kootenay%202014/029_zps404b9e33.jpg)
only 1 truck boarded this small ferry, might hold all of 4 cars and a truck trailer combo as this GMC Topkick is the lone truck going for a ride
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/West%20Kootenay%202014/030_zpsb4200973.jpg)
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/West%20Kootenay%202014/031_zps0f7b3d38.jpg)
from Fauquier to Nakusp along the eastern shore of Arrow Lake, not a truck in site and the sun went down, we got a hotel in Nakusp, a small skiing resort community off season. More tomorrrow!

Post by: JJG on September 21, 2014, 09:35:23 PM
The morning in Nakusp is cool and clear, great day ahead, it really got very warm! We started out with a walk to get the body in gear, this should do it! Breath taking! House boats, it's all good!
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/West%20Kootenay%202014/039_zps1a17313a.jpg)
 A few trucks in town, one from Home Hardware lumber division. I don't get to see a tandem Topkick very often
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/West%20Kootenay%202014/041_zps8fcd0310.jpg)
up the hill going out of town is this Nakusp Concrete batch plant, I seem to have a soft spot for these
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/West%20Kootenay%202014/047_zps614002be.jpg)
the tri-drive Sterling looks kinda cool
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/West%20Kootenay%202014/048_zpsef0345af.jpg)
a few of the other units on hand
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/West%20Kootenay%202014/046_zps7d91274b.jpg)
interesting old trailer out of Ontario ended up here. I don't recognize this unit from my Ontario days
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/West%20Kootenay%202014/040_zps33f4e6da.jpg)
couldn't resist this old 50's Chevy
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/West%20Kootenay%202014/045_zpsfd021cb7.jpg)
continuing on Hwy 6  east (NE) to New Denver, no trucking activity to capture, missed a logging rig, nothing in New Denver, small town, got gas, headed up Hwy 31A to Kaslo. Between New Denver and Kaslo we spotted this awesome old REO,
 (http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/West%20Kootenay%202014/053_zps6c64b798.jpg)
Kaslo is a unique historical town! It's hey day comes from Kokanee Lake which had a passenger ferry service before the automobile came to be.
this Ford LNT dump works the area
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/West%20Kootenay%202014/052_zpsff8b05e7.jpg)
captured this scene from the downtown area-sorry about the glare, you just can't get out for every thing you see! Of course there was also an awesome lake to see, the Kokanee Lake as mentioned earlier, I didn't upload a photo of it. We aren't done with htis Lake yet.
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/West%20Kootenay%202014/058_zps8af117ff.jpg)

Connect Hwy 31 in Kaslo, we head south to Nelson. We were a bit time bound as we needed to do some business downtown, sun was at a bad angle to shoot on the move. Once in town, this Peterbilt is right downtown were we need to be!
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/West%20Kootenay%202014/060_zps2d3fc26b.jpg)
to get there we crossed the Kokanee River via this Bridge, once we had done our thing we explored to catch this view of how we entered town
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/West%20Kootenay%202014/062_zpsf28fdbf5.jpg)
waited for quite a while here to catch a big truck crossing the bridge, Safeway was in town with a Prostar and tridem reefer, sadly the Safeway store was this side of the river! I zoomed on this IH instead
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/West%20Kootenay%202014/063_zps1edab850.jpg)
the local batch plant was in sight, yeah I did, took some pictures, here are a few
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/West%20Kootenay%202014/065_zpsbdcf9225.jpg)
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/West%20Kootenay%202014/068_zpsed1d3717.jpg)
Nelson has a Home Hardware building Centre too, they chose an IH 7400 to deliver
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/West%20Kootenay%202014/064_zps2a9ee1ee.jpg)

We decided to head back over the river, got a hotel for the night as we wanted to cross the Lake via another ferry, that will be tomorrow!

On the way up to the ferry terminal, I remembered to capture these, seen them on the way down, so worth stopping. They were at the roadside!
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/West%20Kootenay%202014/071_zpsf96a5f08.jpg)
I would guess these KW's spent their life working this area
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/West%20Kootenay%202014/072_zps7f5327ed.jpg)
the small community of Balfour is where this ferry sails from, across Kokanee Lake to Crawford Bay. It is a 35 minutes sailing said to be the longest free ferry ??
this KW logger was 1st in line to board, from Kaslo, just a bit North, I think he was going to Creston.
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/West%20Kootenay%202014/073_zps7da2bb96.jpg)
we had to wait about 45 min. to sail, as we wandered around, very fitting no less, the Kokanee KW was off loading beer at the store down the road
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/West%20Kootenay%202014/079_zps097b9d54.jpg)
while waiting, one can view some stores, food places and this hippy bus too!
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/West%20Kootenay%202014/083_zps75062f3c.jpg)
this unique set up arrived later but in time to catch this sailing
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/West%20Kootenay%202014/085_zpsb3e68ba4.jpg)
the Kokanee KW moved over here to deliver to the bar/resort at the terminal
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/West%20Kootenay%202014/084_zpsb5d4eb04.jpg)
the Columbia Brewery gets its cold water from the Kokanee glacier which is across the hwy and south just a bit

the Osprey is arriving, the larger vessel that makes the sailing, a smaller one takes the overload in prime season and when breakdown or service is required
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/West%20Kootenay%202014/089_zps3423853b.jpg)
Unloading, cars come off first followed by the trucks, there were 2 logging trucks on board, a T800

and the loading begins
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/West%20Kootenay%202014/096_zps7e291063.jpg)
this T 800-yeah, I think KW rules this area-low boy was in the lineup, enters
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/West%20Kootenay%202014/098_zpsc54131f0.jpg)
we are entering, photographer Judi doing the shooting from inside
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/West%20Kootenay%202014/101_zps2dfb5a8e.jpg)
once we were on and parked, we took a look around and I went to the front to get this shot
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/West%20Kootenay%202014/107_zps3a2d8f8f.jpg)
they pack them on tight
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/West%20Kootenay%202014/102_zps4d4e29d4.jpg)
keeping a bird's eye view on the situation
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/West%20Kootenay%202014/103_zpsa2af74ab.jpg)
approaching Crawford Bay
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/West%20Kootenay%202014/112_zpsb61cc687.jpg)

Bonus:
This brave soul was in the water (Lake) with his Kubota tractor, I zoomed in on him as we were sailing. He was in deeper when I first spotted him
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/West%20Kootenay%202014/105_zpscd3166e6.jpg)
 Later on as we were coming down the highway the wet tractor was parked by his house, safe and sound :)

And from Crawford bay to Creston, that will be another chapter!

continuing on the journey SB, at Crawford Bay, Hwy 3A takes you down to Creston on the East shore of Kokanee Lake, a scenic drive overlooking the lake often. Stopped for lunch at a rest area, looking at the lake of course, this Mack MR concrete pumper broke the silence, grabbed the camera between bites ::)
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/West%20Kootenay%202014/119_zpsd5d7ef59.jpg)
then, a Kokanee KW SB. gets attention. This is NOT the KW on the west side of the lake either, I wondered how he would have got there as he was not on the ferry. No unit #'s on the trucks, I zoomed in to see the different trailers
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/West%20Kootenay%202014/120_zps9e3025a7.jpg)
Once in Creston, this Chevron tri-drive straight truck is making his rounds
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/West%20Kootenay%202014/125_zps4feee6f6.jpg)
now on Hwy 3,main street in Creston is the back drop for this logging truck
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/West%20Kootenay%202014/128_zps34f70a53.jpg)
CP Rail crews are working the afternoon in town, this FL114 SD is turning around to join the rest
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/West%20Kootenay%202014/138_zpsc9cc4d55.jpg)
who are in the FL70 crew cab
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/West%20Kootenay%202014/137_zps8d69d380.jpg)
and on the tracks is the IH 7600 crew cab
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/West%20Kootenay%202014/136_zpsecf75ff4.jpg)
then, who should roll into town but one of the Kokanee KW T800's, I think these guys thought I was out to get them :).........could have taken a cold on off the truck mind you, it was hot!
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/West%20Kootenay%202014/140_zps34fba8e2.jpg)
on towards Salmo, the Pualson Summit is a nasty hill for big trucks, a huge climb followed by a long descend
possibly an ex- Loomis unit, the R Model is still working, climbing at a snails pace
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/West%20Kootenay%202014/167_zpsc7511734.jpg)
a lot of these shots did not come out well due to the afternoon sun causing too much glare. Here is one salvaged of a Prostar coming down EB on the Creston side
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/West%20Kootenay%202014/177_zpsa9d1b0b9.jpg)
there are runaway lanes, 3 of them, nobody wants to use them......really! But, if you do need one.......

from there, into Salmo, small town, not much activity, we went up Hwy 6 North to Nelson, a section I have never been on, just below Neslon, going west again on 3A to Grand Forks, We spent the night here, next morning, Kal Tire dropping off tires at the local tire shop via the bull dog!
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/West%20Kootenay%202014/193_zps32cbcc87.jpg)

There were some missed opportunities on Hwy 6, but, as it turns out we end up back on that section later, this time we took advantage of those, later though!

That Pualson Summitt hill is a nasty hill.I have been over it a few times with a Super B.The down hill side is definitaly an excercise in patience.Cool seeing the old R-model still working.

Very interesting  travel series. I like the main street pics with those traditional buildings. I like too the pics with the CP truck. Around here I almost only see trucks from the CN.It's pleasant too to look at the R Model and  the great landscape in almost all pics.

This was our only cloudy/rainy day on the trip, not bad at all! From Grand Forks, we wanted to check out Trail and Rossland, also a section never before explored. Hwy 3 East towards Castelgar, again, the Paulson Summit going the other way. this FLD 120 Classic is holding up some traffic on the downward run, as he is loaded, a wise man to be patient, he did not want to end up on the runaway lane!
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/West%20Kootenay%202014/205_zps3bab7701.jpg)
a tanker is nearing the top, EB
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/West%20Kootenay%202014/213_zpsa066ab65.jpg)
and a Western Star with a load of hay rounds the bend about to descend
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/West%20Kootenay%202014/210_zps970c1154.jpg)
just after the summit, down the other side, the cut off for Rossland and Trail is Hwy 3A, up again on Strawberry Pass , Rossland comes first, we entered town, very historical town. This IH S series was sitting in a yard
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/West%20Kootenay%202014/221_zps21595221.jpg)
an IH 9200i is taking off from a nasty incline, poor old trucks!!

an FLD 120 dump truck comes thru town, I was surprised by the truck traffic in this small town, it is from WA. then we realized that Hwy 22 connects from here to Trail and south to the US
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/West%20Kootenay%202014/225_zps9e0111ba.jpg)
going down from Rossland into Trail, another small town of Warfield all connect in the killer down hill. Once in Trail, this KW T800H made an appearance, seen him many times since as he was running from the Smelter to dump slag........somewhere near by!
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/West%20Kootenay%202014/231_zps0ffb1701.jpg)
this is the Smelter in question, just up the hill from where the T800H was taken
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/West%20Kootenay%202014/239_zps00cf180b.jpg)
this FLD 120 Classic on with Trimac is also doing many local runs to and from the plant, he just came down from there
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/West%20Kootenay%202014/233_zps0dac8934.jpg)
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/West%20Kootenay%202014/234_zps00e37c70.jpg)
we took a walk thru all this activity, this is on the bridge crossing the Columbia River just down from the plant/mine. A KW T800 is doing local construction work
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/West%20Kootenay%202014/242_zpsb2ed1428.jpg)
followed by another KW T800 from Trimac hauling B train side dumps also with some product from the plant, maybe copper or zinc
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/West%20Kootenay%202014/244_zps2c766294.jpg)
we crossed and went to the other side, walked back and down the street to capture this look of the same bridge. A pair of Cascadias make their way EB
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/West%20Kootenay%202014/255_zpsccdc7d78.jpg)
on the other side of the bridge-we drove there now though, these dump trucks were all grouped together here, an LTL 9000 up first
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/West%20Kootenay%202014/274_zps115c7bb7.jpg)

(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/West%20Kootenay%202014/273_zpsc493240a.jpg)

the rain set in pretty good now so we grabbed a hotel and had an earlier day, relaxing but tomorrow we will add some more info on TEK, the smelter/mine which is the back bone of Trail

I am really enjoying the pictures from this area.There is a very old fertilizer plant owned by Cominco halfway up the hill from between Rossland and Trail.I hauled a few loads out of there then up to Vanderhoof.It has probably been about 10 years since I have been there.I remember coming out of the plant and even though we were already half way down the hill it was a wicked drop right down into downtown Trail.

Interesting trip. I like the urban pics and the one on the bridge.  I like the Ford LTL 9000 and the KW T-800H.  This model is quite rare around here.

Thanks guys, glad you're enjoying this trip, it was a fine one indeed!

Rob G, yes, that fertilizer plant is still active, now under the TECK ownership. That would have been quite a trip from there to Vanderhoof. Any pics of that trip? Who did you run for then?

Teck seems to run the entire complex, the mine/smelter/refinery complex has zinc, lead  and the fertilizer products uphill from the other one. Also included in this operation is the Waneta Hydro-electric Dam down river from here.

At one time this main plant employed 5000 people, now it is at about 1200-1500. Picture can't do this site justice really but for what it's worth, in this set, I have included several shots of the operations and goings on.

First, from the hotel, I could view Hwy 3A that runs East to Montrose, Fruitvale and on to Salmo. This Sterling is headed WB to Trail, who could resist?
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/West%20Kootenay%202014/305_zps85411cc9.jpg)
then a Trimac KW T800 tri-drive/dump trailer hauling out of TECK, not sure what he has, Trimac has a terminal just up the road from here which is where he is going. It is clearly marked "PRIVATE PROPERTY, NO TRESPASSING', need I say more?
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/West%20Kootenay%202014/294_zpsa1d0e78f.jpg)
for Gerard, another T800H a logger, not a very high quality photo I see
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/West%20Kootenay%202014/296_zps09508835.jpg)
away we go, back thru Trail to take a look at the TECK complex, the sun had returned so we could get nicer pictures then the day before
A look at the Fertilizer Plant up hill from the main smelter refinery
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/West%20Kootenay%202014/345_zpsc18ff662.jpg)

(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/West%20Kootenay%202014/336_zpsc31fa95e.jpg)
zooming out to my max, here another one beyond Van-Kam. seems to be a Peterbilt 579 or KW T660 with an interesting side dump.end dump B-train

(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/West%20Kootenay%202014/313_zps75d26754.jpg)
all dump trucks would enter this area, stop and then go, weigh scale? Not sure why it was covered.

took  more pictures of the main plant, but on with the show. These were actually taken yesterday of the Caron Transport Terminal at Trail/Waneta, they seem to handle mostly the Fertilizer operations and the must be transferring to rail tank cars. Maybe too steep a grade for the rail? Not sure

You're absolutely right there Tim, I don't know why I posted it as a KW? Thanks, I will change that immediately!

You didn't help me out with the other one, the one I couldn't really tell? 579? T680?

(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/West%20Kootenay%202014/346_zps8d918f37.jpg)
then we head back thru Trail, east thru Waneta, Montrose, Fruitvale, all small communities flowing into one another on #3A till we meet up with Hwy 3 to Salmo. This is were we have been again but no way not to double up on one section, north on Hwy 6 to catch a few opportunities we missed the other day. Sutco calls Salmo home, here are a few shots of their terminal, prepping a new KW T680 tractor

this is were we leave Hwy 3, head up Hwy 33 to Kelowna, one more road never traveled. Very little to see here really, no towns to speak of and little truck activity. Big White is an attraction here for those interested in skiing, then down into Kelowna. It got dark, we had supper and headed toward home via 97C, the connector to Merritt where we stayed for the night.
The next morning we finished the trip :(, here is one from Hwy 5, the Coquihalla
more glare from the sun, but this one is between Merritt and Hope, just below the snow sheds

this Cascadia short nose from Super Save has caught my eye, never seen it before till about a month ago, since then I have been trying to catch it, best shot I could get so far is here at the Supersave Gas Station, unloading fuel.

Not Jim, Rob here....I don't know about the Volvos but Wayne and I saw a DOME Pete 579 at the diesel pumps at the Mississauga Husky.

this was a must shoot; Ocean Transport with a new Peterbilt 579 with the Anniversary scheme? Didn't get a chance to wander back  to talk to the driver to get the scoop but it has their name o it

I like the 75th anniversary edition but the symbol of Pete for me is more a big car than an aero truck.  Maybe we have to forget the past and look toward the future.

Been a bit but not much time to shoot, weather has been fine but no time. This Lonestar was in Langley, I shot the same one a few years ago on with Tenold, now he is on with T-Lane
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket006/002_zpsd67746a5.jpg)
I shot this one last week and found it in the yard the other day, it was not clean, took some shots, the wash truck came later that day and washed it up. Next morning, took a few shots of the clean truck, here they are
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket006/005_zps784156a8.jpg)
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket006/004_zpscacaa5f0.jpg)
the story on this truck is that they sold one of the 379's :(, had to get another unit, this was on the lot and so he bought it.
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket006/006_zps6b42e4c9.jpg)
last weekend found this VT 880 in Abbottsford

As always, nice pics with interesting captions. I like the Volvo VT 880.  The old Econoline bring back souvenirs. I had bought one for 400$ in 1967  for my archeological survey on the Quebec North Shore in the summer of 67. It was a 1961 and I have sold it for the same price at the end of the season.

Oh that's cool Gerard, I had a '62 Mercury too yet- as is this one- but I bought mine for $200.00 in 1976, spent a lot of money to have all new panels put in the bottom, ran out of money, it ended up out side, rusted away, traded it to my brother for a set of rims.......he made a trailer out of it!! I think you did much better!!

If it wasn't for Ocean Transport being right in the same place as my shop, I would have less photo ops during the week!! This one has been in storage for some time but the cab was raised the other day, been a while since I seen one that way.

then this made my day. It was a VERY wet and miserable day but this fine "redo" of Triple-Seven came in!! It was sittng in the yard for some time-Jan 2014 to Aug(?) in need of some attention
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket076/006_zps4346bab4.jpg)

Glad you guys enjoyed them, it was fun, my 2 year old grandson was just amazed, couldn't get his attention for anything while the trucks went by............wonder where he gets that from :).

It does take a lot to do, most run a generator on the back to give the power source, last couple years there was a concrete mixer completely lit up, rotating drum and all, spectacular but it was not there this year! The Canada Post had the inside of the van body decked out well too! These were the ones that came up OK but so many did not, I'll go thru them and see if there are a few others that might make the grade. I have one posted on POTM category, didn't think I should double post that.

It was the 9th annual parade!

We stayed the weekend at a cool place in Colwood (part of the greater Victoria region) overlooking the  Esquimalt Lagoon and being able to see the distant city across the water, just an awesome view.
View Royal is a suburb of the region, an older IH S Series sits outside the old hall, a new hall is being built just down the road
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Island%20Trip%20Feb%202014/016_zps78d0852d.jpg)

an interesting variety of equipment wears the Greave name, a (VW) Kenworth COE, an old Chevy C series and a Volvo F(?)series COE are among them, a Ford F650 is on the far left facing forward
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Island%20Trip%20Feb%202014/019_zpsf4835dba.jpg)

(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Island%20Trip%20Feb%202014/021_zps72c11b2d.jpg)
just around the corner from them is Nanaimo Cold Storage  (Victoria warehouse), quite a few strait trucks in the region
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Island%20Trip%20Feb%202014/023_zpscd7f21aa.jpg)

(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Island%20Trip%20Feb%202014/036_zps04830f56.jpg)
this Volvo super B tanker just came up out of the Esquimalt Dry Docks, not sure what he left there. It is a secure area and like a fool, I left my wallet at the hotel that day, wifey was not happy as we were denied access........that did not make me happy either and sadly, we never made it back the next day
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Island%20Trip%20Feb%202014/054_zpsd518bb65.jpg)
the next day we took a nice long walk around Victoria's inner harbour trying to catch some views of what takes place in the downtown. Industry still has a place in town but getting good pictures of all of it is not easy, in a boat would be ideal.
LaFarge has a large set up here but no concrete mixers visible, Trimac sitting in the yard with a fuel tanker and a dry bulk
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Island%20Trip%20Feb%202014/069_zpsfee61023.jpg)
also at LaFarge, a Western Star dump set up
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Island%20Trip%20Feb%202014/070_zps3e3ab353.jpg)
Butler Concrete seemed to share the LaFarge plant but no equipment of theirs was to be found. Just down the street, Ocean Concrete (Lehigh) is alive and well
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Island%20Trip%20Feb%202014/071_zpsaabd89dc.jpg)
going to the front gate proved to be worth doing, the previous shot zoomed in from Lafarge

(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Island%20Trip%20Feb%202014/065_zps8d0dc60a.jpg)

Island Farms Dairy is just up from the downtown but still in the city, a few views of the trucks on hand, they seem to take pride in the fleet as seen by this pair

After trying to catch the re-build of "Triple Seven" from Ocean Transport, the first time I caught him it was raining hard, then last week it came in on a sunny day, with the low sun in this season it is hard to catch the look but here it is again, no rain!

another of the tractor
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket001/009_zps3b24888a.jpg)
checked out the Peterbilt dealership in Pt Kells and found a dozen or more new concrete mixers, maybe for LaFarge?
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket001/001_zps12b23ea6.jpg)
zoomed in on this Peterbilt sitting in a country setting in the city, had a horse trailer next to it but I could not catch that from the trees in the way

They do?? Kind of odd really, Ill have to ask about it when they come back in. They just finished the build, seems strange to sell but I think there is another new 579 @ Pt Kells in their colour, maybe back to old school didn't go over as planned!

Took a trip to one of the Southern Gulf Islands for the weekend, nice getaway, weather was great and as always got a few pictures in the mix! This time we opted for Salt Spring Island, it is the most populated of the Southern Gulf Islands but oddly enough, we did not find more trucks on it. Here is a look at what we did get.
Before crossing over, on the Delta side (Tswassen Terminal, one Cold Star taking one of the other sailings
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket007/002_zpsazewdeaq.jpg)
 this Ferry run is a bit lengthy with 3 stops, Galiano, Mayne and on to Long Harbour on Salt Spring making for a near 3 hr sailing. No trucks where on this one, being Good Friday night, not surprising. We stayed on the North East part of the Island, in the central part lies a nice town of Ganges, these were taken around town.
Gulf Coast Materials
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket007/008_zpsq8fmc1wy.jpg)
one of 2 Pumpers
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket007/010_zpswowqayji.jpg)
they had 2 Mack Granite mixers that i could not capture but took these RDM Macks
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket007/011_zpsh8k7bsj1.jpg)
they had the door open to the Fire Hall, one of 3, and this pumper serves Ganges
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket007/019_zps88lchvzo.jpg)
and this Isuzu Rescue  helps out
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket007/018_zpsucs2mbt9.jpg)
we drove down to another Ferry Terminal,near the Southwest part, Fulton Harbour where we captured this IH 9400 dump
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket007/022_zps4vkpitl4.jpg)
back to the central East coast, Vesuvius Terminal has a ferry service to the main Island at Crofton, on the way there we came past Hall #2, this M2 looks proud to be part of the fleet
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket007/030_zpsijjjmkfp.jpg)
 we decided to sail out of there, 20 minutes sailing  to see Crofton, sailing on the hour every hour seemed like the thing to do, small ferry, no trucks on board. Now in Crofton this dump truck looked worthy of a shot, an Oskosh?
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket007/032_zpscoaszj2u.jpg)
we bought some local produce, beer and found this Kingsley Trucking O/O KW in Crofton
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket007/035_zpsaf5mmbx1.jpg)

Past weekend we brought the summer cruiser out of storage, it was sunny so off to a mini road trip..........to familiar stomping grounds, Aldergrove, Abbottsford and Chilliwack. Before we left the storage yard, this pair of Peterbilt 379s were sitting, ex Whiskey River units
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket008/002_zpsswp9fsim.jpg)
off to Aldergrove which didn't yield anything new, on to Abbottsford, ah yes, Ulster Trucking and we have a cool 379 I have not seen yet, loaded with rail wheels
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket008/006_zpsemeverbt.jpg)
another 379 from Seven H Transport
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket008/007_zpspsrnrm1u.jpg)
ok, so we're on a 379 binge, one loaded down with Weyerhauser Lumber on the B-train
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket008/009_zpsyx1vffke.jpg)
still on Peterbilt, a 386 this time from Vedder Transport of Abbottsford with B-train tanker looking eastward
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket028/018_zpszxingzd9.jpg)
at Peterbilt of Abbottsford, this fine new 389 with custom headlights and unique colour scheme
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket028/015_zpszaes2s7g.jpg)
also, another new 389
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket028/014_zpszh78fmrk.jpg)
a 379 flat top with no clearance lights from Burnaby @the dealer
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket028/016_zpsv57wlryd.jpg)
just to show there is more then Peterbilt roaming the streets as evident by this SB Columbia on HWY 11
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket028/012_zpszuylaf37.jpg)

before we leave Abbottsford, this 379 has fallen on hard times and lost the battle
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket008/010_zpswmepiiig.jpg)
 next stop, Chilliwack. The summer cruiser is working just fine!

(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket067/026_zpskolj7a3d.jpg)
and coming thru Chilliwack, WB, an unknown T680
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket067/035_zpskez1pdyo.jpg)
once we ate supper, it was getting dark quick, took a quick look at the Husky to find these, a smart looking T660 KW
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket067/038_zpssbaxpvpv.jpg)
The Argosy is from an Atlas Van Lines agent with a bonus  early 90's FL COE next to it from Quick Transfer, MB.
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket067/037_zps1smurrff.jpg)

Thanks for the tour, Jim. My favourites are the Pte with  Mt Baker in the back and the top less Blazer. Quite clean for an old truck.

Title: Re: RANDOM SHOTS FROM BC
Post by: JJG on April 19, 2015, 11:42:08 PM
Glad you enjoyed Gerard, yes that Blazer is clean, looks to be for sale the way it is parked but don't see a For Sale sign.

Let's continue.......on to Chilliwack, at the Esso a pair of bright red 579's from Kivi Trucking serving up Serco products

Just after leaving the Husky, this fine IH 9900ix rolled up to enter, I shot him as he went around the corner, would have liked a better shot
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket085/052_zpsshk9ye5c.jpg)
then onto Aggazzi we go to find this Peterbilt 389 laden down with steel coils, don't see too many of them here
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket085/053_zpspoxmgcp1.jpg)

(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket007/058_zpsktu4f32m.jpg)
we left here and went along the north side of the river via HWY 7 to Mission, ate and headed home via Abbottsford, too dark to shoot more. Sunday was gorgeous so we set off from Langley, while getting gas we shot this IH9900i moving a portable rock crusher
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket106/026_zps6zbo1e7x.jpg)

and a silver T680
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket106/031_zpsa3jsymus.jpg)


Bonus shot
if this is an actual 4X4 Suburban, it sure is rare, I have the feeling it is mounted on a newer Blazer chassis but still, cool old 64-66 Chevy Suburban, in Aggazzi

Great series Jim. I like all the pics with mountains as a background. Great catch with  three COE  together. The  red & white second generation Coronado is  from Trans Luthi, a small carrier  from Baie-du-Fevre Qc.  It's a small town near Nicolet where  a big truck show is held yearly in August.

This time our rounder went to Abbottsford -the back way- and to the North side of the river into Mission -where we reversed the day before. Here is one from the back way
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket106/033_zps5fouskfy.jpg)
and Mission was a good source for some oldies, take a look, some new ones too
an early 90's FL COE hooked into a Pathfinder trailer
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket052/036_zpsktzr8yej.jpg)
seeing more of these Volvo VHD flat top sleeper cabs for the auto haulers
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket052/041_zpsnijc4erd.jpg)
a 70's IH Transtar 4300 with a bunk, note the wipers from above the windshield, an early feature
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket052/035_zpsztevoum7.jpg)
a sharp FLD 120 Classic from Pro Image
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket052/038_zps44k4sa5c.jpg)
and a Peterbilt 378 flat top bunk from the same company, although it looks like he has a load of cedar shakes along with some shrubs, the trailer is actually empty
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket052/039_zpsex1pqm6n.jpg)
seeing a lot of Argosy tractors lately, this one may be for the Movie Industry
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket052/037_zpsapqhj4qo.jpg)
a Peterbilt 379 with some custom features hooked into a tridem step deck
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket069/042_zpsybggdb4u.jpg)

(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket069/043_zps2tihqj0x.jpg)
caught this Western Star day cab years ago in Richmond, from Mission, still looks pretty good
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket069/044_zpswnt6j6lx.jpg)
not a huge fan of thru fence shots but how do you not? Didn't want to leave this FLB behind
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket069/046_zpsfmuvgist.jpg)
and, neither did I want to pass on this W900 that seems to be an ex Tri-Line Express
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket069/045_zpswyfr7mmc.jpg)
still a few more to go before leaving Mission but ..........

The Bonus Shot:
Another view of the Pacific logger that we seen near Abbottsford, went passed  him, turned down a side road to zoom in on the one with the barn, then turned around for this shot,  zoomed in from the other road

Yeah, I agree, just took the shot quick -as it was at the end of a road- while turning around. When I looked closer at the picture it looks VERY restore-able!

Just a couple of shots in Mission yet, this old C Cab Ford, ex ESSO was zoomed in at a aggregate facility along the river
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket069/047_zpsgsujvioo.jpg)
and this Peterbilt 378 with B-train bottom dump was in the same place
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket069/048_zpsxftewtxu.jpg)
then we headed along to Maple Ridge, as we were eating this T2000 from Pro-West rolls up, parks along the street with 4 ways, I snapped a shot and he left, think he had to check on the store address he was delivering to as I seen him scooting thru a back alley right after that!
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket069/054_zpslofntur7.jpg)
looks as though they used a decal for a 48' and put it on a 45' or so, kinda cut it off

We crossed the river via the Golden Ears Bridge and headed for home! Yesterday I caught 2 Ocean trucks heading out, the awesome "triple seven"
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket029/002_zpsds5gcqwf.jpg)
the boss man was following right behind in the ex Gordon FLD 120 Classic, #770, I sure would like to see that re-painted in  Ocean's colour
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket029/004_zpslwbf60z1.jpg)
wife Judi caught these 2 Peterbilts sitting in Langley, both are not plated
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket006/20150422_202717_zpsm9exi8dd.jpg)

I like to look at  those " promenades " , catching here and there a trucks, most of the time with nice mountains in the background. In this series, the Brandt and the Titan are my favourite.  I would like to see later the Titan with the concrete pump installed .

Thanks Gerard, I appreciate the mountains each time I go out, always nice to capture scenes with that as the backdrop. I too would love to follow the build of the Astra Titan, don't get out that way too often and would love to get up there during the week, maybe the gate would be open and one could enter in to capture some of the trucks. My first capture of an Astra Mack MR was around 2003, taken right in behind where I work, a new building was being erected, I took a few shots then,

I didn't see they had a yard beside Concorde at that time, I had been to find Concorde after seeing that Pumper, very hard to get pictures of the activity, well gated!
Here is a link to their web-site:

a few more from Coquitlam and Port Coquitlam, we were hovering right around the border of, so some may actually be Port, while others Coquitlam
Sysco has a terminal/DC here, sorry about all the chain link shots, weekends are quiet in these parts but hard to get action without the fence
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket004/Jimmyjacobs_bucket003/018_zps3qzwi6ri.jpg)
this appears to be an ex-Kiewett Contracting truck, they had a pile of these KW T800 tri-drives while working on the new Port Mann Bridge and the Sea to Sky Highway project. Can't make out the name of the current owner
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket004/Jimmyjacobs_bucket003/005_zpsyjga1yi7.jpg)
I have seen PDI of Guelph Ontario here at Canada Bread many times, now I see they may not travel across the country each time as they have a yard here
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket023/004_zpsk6igpkel.jpg)
then we head out to Pit Meadows, a small city just to the east of Coquitlam, across the Pitt River. We headed northward to Pitt Lake, the largest fresh water tidal lake in the world with reverse flowing rivers during tide, didn't seem like much of a deal but being as it claims to be that, maybe it is quite cool. We did capture this fine scene returning from the lake, too bad we couldn't shoot to the north as we would have got a mountain backdrop, but........a barn, boat, trailers and an old  FLB COE, I shouldn't ask for more!! Looks to be an ex-Allied Van Lines tractor
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket004/Jimmyjacobs_bucket003/024_zpsk9whort8.jpg)

Bonus Shot: in the centre, just because, this is Pitt Lake with the Thompson mountain range in behind.

(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket004/Jimmyjacobs_bucket003/028_zpspikp2mcd.jpg)
saw this nice Peterbilt 389 across the tracks on HWY 7 pullout, had to get up on the tracks to zoom out on this, can't make out the name on the door though

Final Bonus Shot:
the sign for LaFarge is unique and well done. One way to get an Ontario spec'd picture in BC ::) I actually favor this look over the BC spec.......but that is just my opinion.

I have been trying to snag him for years now. He stopped to close the doors on the street, I shot a few to make sure I got him.

Spent the weekend on one of the Gulf Islands, this time we chose Galiano. It is the first Port O Call from the mainland, 45 min. sailing, coming back however isn't so easy on a long weekend, we couldn't reserve the return when we booked so, they give you a "thru-fare" which means you board Galiano , stop off at Mayne, Pender Island and on to Victoria (Schwartz Bay) were you get off, spin around and board back to Vancouver. Kinda goofy really but the weather was fantastic so sail we did making it 4 hrs of sailing in a 5 1/2 hr span. As we boarded Friday afternoon from (Tsawassen) these are a few trucks waiting to board to Victoria. No trucks entered on our vessel. They pack em in tight in the line up and difficult to get a nice shot
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket059/012_zpsttx58lkj.jpg)
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket059/011_zps3b7o9xps.jpg)
after boarding, up off the deck I was able to zoom in on BC Ferries Peterbilt hooked into an XTL tridem, likely loaded for Costco
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket059/016_zpsxrowxgea.jpg)
Once on Galiano, we stayed in a cottage, very private on around a 3.5 acre lot, no one to bother us.not much for trucks, didn't find one tractor trailer combo but we scored some pretty cool stuff. On the property of the cottage this 1980 Ford LN8000 bucket truck was down near the back of the lot
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket059/020_zpso7nkq6op.jpg)
3208 CAT engine,

A Mack Granite gravel truck was next door
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket059/058_zpssl79z91w.jpg)
as we drove around the Island zoomed in on this IH S Series dump truck from the road
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket059/030_zpsom02vwec.jpg)
and another IH down the road, this time a "Rolls Royce" 9900 tandem dump
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket059/032_zpsjuliijzj.jpg)
always enjoy going past the fire halls, South Galiano Fire Dept had this nicely restored Dodge  under cover, the rest of the trucks were behind closed doors
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket059/034_zpsg497azc7.jpg)
an unusual unit an MR Mack HIAB with a van body on the deck, looked like he was hooked into a trailer but no, it is a van box.
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket059/036_zpseciwnpke.jpg)
you can't have roads and not maintain them, this was an IH 4900 sited  for the job, the others might have been in the shed

BONUS SHOT

When we got back from touring around, the owners of the cottage were there working on the new garage, we met, had a great time and then..........he said "so you like old cars?". Follow me, and off we went thru the trees to the neighbors lot where this old Dodge sits in the field

There used to be 60+ cars on site, most are taken away by now. There are only a few old trucks left -much to my delight- and this Mack B-73 is sitting across from the Dodge. Pretty tough old girl!
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket059/040_zps4j77u7kc.jpg)
the other side of the Dodge
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket059/044_zpsxqrs0eij.jpg)
another look, this was a logging truck in it's day, always been a part of the family business
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket059/039_zpshesccmax.jpg)
here is an interesting part of the business, an mid 30's Ford -what is left of it- which had the front sheet metal removed, chassis lengthened which housed the mill.
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket059/046%20-%20Copy_zpsj8xttbyi.jpg)
another B-73 was up the hill a bit, this one is much better condition, still runs, Cummins powered, heavy frame.
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket059/042_zpsmbi2ovxq.jpg)
Then we move off the lot again, head as far west on the Island -about 26 kms- and at the end of the road, these 3 old pickups are sitting idle, the 1st one is a 64 Mercury
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket059/059%20-%20Copy_zpsejgdxpb2.jpg)
and behind it, a 1970 Ford
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket059/060%20-%20Copy_zpsmyzhffvt.jpg)
and the 3rd one is a 67 Chevy small back window 8' fenderside
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket059/061%20-%20Copy_zpscej9ekfs.jpg)
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket098/062_zpsgjkfbz52.jpg)
coming back we checked out the ferry arrival, only one small truck coming off
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket059/057%20-%20Copy_zpsyqx9vck7.jpg)

and seeing as most of these would have qualified for a bonus shot, here is the last one from the Island, a 1957 Ford, tucked away behind a pole, looks to be an ex Fire truck

The movie industry is alive and well here, these have set up often here, 5 blocks away from home makes for some easy pictures......and some interesting units.
a Mack Midliner with pull trailer

(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket039/005_zps6vy28ezi.jpg)
and T600 don't have much popularity either but here is one
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket039/004_zpsky5s17kv.jpg)
and a few weekend outings result in some finds, one being on a service road near Abbotttsford, a T800 transfer dump in black and yellow
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket067/029_zpswhngxqup.jpg)
between Abbottsford and Chilliwack, you could stop in and buy this IH 9400 for a price
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket067/031_zpsnvdzz8j8.jpg)

in Bridal Falls, this intimidating 367 tri-drive logger laden down with logs is a fine combo
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket036/044_zpsnntzcpat.jpg)

(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket036/045_zpsgtnt94or.jpg)
when you see a Transtar ll, fence or no fence you shoot, and this is what you see, next to the FLB
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket036/046_zpssjjbizdl.jpg)
back in Chilliwack, this Hi-Pro Feeds 389 Peterbilt looks clean, might be a Reimer Bros. unit
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket036/048_zpsgnajoswx.jpg)

We ended up in the same area again Sunday but trying to catch different roads. Our aim right now is to find a 1971 Lincoln Continental 4 door, need one for parts!! So. while searching every back road, we succeed with some different truck pictures
of course while getting to, might as well check out Alliance Pumpers, yes, something different for a pumper along with the usual

Goodness, the weekend is already at hand and I haven't finished last weekend's journey.
Yarrow is a small town but it has 2 window/door manufacturing facilities, in one of them a Prostar has just picked up a load of windows
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket023/017_zpsuwigdxrp.jpg)
 Spotted this FLD 120 in Yarrow
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket023/018_zpshpqhzhf5.jpg)
also in Yarrow, this one seems to be an ex Audec? of PQ
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket023/019_zpsskoel1j8.jpg)
at the Husky, a 9900ix is in the line up
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket023/022_zpsghmp48md.jpg)
and this Western Star found favor for my camera @the Husky
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket023/025_zpsutyrqncg.jpg)
Doritos gets delivered stylishly in this KW, also taking a break at the Husky
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket023/029_zpsjlhygaa3.jpg)
a Prostar in the back row
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket023/027_zpsvrudtjpb.jpg)
this fine looking KW was photo worthy, also in Chilliwack
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket023/028_zpsqsdny8os.jpg)
I never pass up on a Coronado, 1st gen this time still looking fine
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket057/023_zpsiwnz1qry.jpg)

I think that we can find former Audec or Express du Midi all over Canada.  Lee have ever posted some working in the Maritimes, I have seen some with Ontario Carriers and now we can even find one in the West. BTW interesting series showing a great variety of trucks in a nice environment.

Yeah thanks Charlie!! The work gets done.......somewhat.......a little behind but one has to take time out here and there!! So busy hadn't even had a chance to take one picture today!

But still a few more from last weekend, just south of Chilliwack these fine Visscher Western Stars are being replaced with single colour blue Peterbilt 389 tractors,
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket047/037_zpstf7suau8.jpg)

as we continue, had to zoom in on this one, a four way stop, this IH 9670 rolls up, stops and goes just was able to nab him. Yes, golf is big around here!
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket047/041_zpszj58uqbh.jpg)
not a common sight here, there were 2 f these clean little car carriers parked here
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket047/039_zpsnwoqpnku.jpg)
rural Chilliwack is certainly farm country along the south to Abbottsford, Vedder Transport hauls milk from the farms, we spotted a Vedder tanker turn into a tight small road from a distance, we slowed right down and as we approached, not only a tanker but 2 Livestock trucks from Dykman unloading as well

from last week, I had sand delivered and it arrived on this clean 1985 IH 1900 series, I had posted him before on Hank's, it was grey metallic then
If anyone knows or has a DT 466 hood ornament, he is looking feverishly for one
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket004/003_zpsgesduwus.jpg)
from the Cloverdale Cold Storage near my shop, always go there if in the neighborhood, this Manitoba based Western Star waits out on the road for his turn to load/unload

Post by: JJG on June 11, 2015, 11:28:13 PM
There was no road trip last weekend but did get a few from the area, starting off with a Coronado from Seven H Transport, not sure why the oversize banner, maybe he just pinned into this load and hadn't removed them yet?
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket004/Jimmyjacobs_bucket003/001_zpsj8nntdah.jpg)
then this fine 389 Pride and Class edition from the same

another 389 Pride and Class from Libra Trucking loaded with lumber in Pt.Kells
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket100/003_zpshpzgefyx.jpg)
I liked it enough to take a 2nd shot, lovely side profile with the old style low roof bunk
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket100/002_zpsnkw8ryul.jpg)
a 379 from Triton in Pt. Kells, must be an owner operator
caught the tail end of this 579 from Ocean, it is a new unit, now they have 3 of these
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket100/004_zpsjuuuwraj.jpg)

A Rodeo 3 blocks away provides a few easy pickins this weekend, captured this batch on the bikes! A Chevy Kodiak Crew cab is a nice solution for a hauler
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket085/009_zpsacfo4kug.jpg)
find the Sterling Acterra hidden away, looks like another cool way to take the horses along
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket085/008_zpsqpvkettn.jpg)
an ex Day & Ross KW T2000 was the choice for this cowboy
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket085/010_zpsy5yq8ttb.jpg)
a nicely appointed IH 9400i single axle makes this one stand out out
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket085/005_zpszhidnayj.jpg)
I don't think the horses have any preference in brand but the owner chose Volvo in this combo
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket085/003_zpsxmqknwrl.jpg)
Peterbilt made the grade, a 378 in this case pulls the trailer, shown in a different view in the POTD
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket085/002_zpst7xvliot.jpg)
down the road a little further sits this Ford LTL 9000 car transporter private carrier
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket085/011_zpsdktnml81.jpg)
then the afternoon transpired into the car and off to Aldergrove, Allied Concrete Pumps mounted a new unit on this fine Granite
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket085/012_zpspbupeuwx.jpg)

(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket086/023_zpsw90mqcfc.jpg)
from rural Langley today, an early 80's 2 story Ford with an original factory paint scheme hooked into a pup, both appear to be in-active
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket059/002_zpsnxfxrvzf.jpg)
also in Langley at the Super Save Propane Terminal, this new Peterbilt 389 day cab and matching tanker look nice in the bright sun
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket128/001_zpsj74ak7sf.jpg)

This past weekend we set out for Penticton for a car show, it is an annual event and we have wanted to check it out for some time now, finally, plans were made a couple months ago and the weekend was HOT and sunny! This is one of the finer cities in the Okanagon Valley with a lake on either end of the city, what more could you ask for.

On the way down, this ex Sunrise Poultry FLB is on steel duty now
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket064/023_zpsrlm7quih.jpg)
and Arrow Transportation runs a fleet of these tri-drive Western Star B-Train side dump dumps between a Copper Mine in Princeton and Vancouver
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket064/026_zpsajtzogkq.jpg)
in Princeton, this KW T800 chemical Acid tanker was taking a break at the CHevron. It was Friday after work when we left so it was getting dark after we left Princeton
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket064/030_zpsstcnlxre.jpg)

While it was a car show, there were some trucks on hand too, this being Berry & Smith's home town it would seem fitting they had a unit on hand to assist in the activities
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket064/031_zpsmzdtcrog.jpg)
OK Redi-Mix had this fine vintage IH to show

this tandem Federal Tanker is quite nice.......and rare
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket064/035_zpsacwcaztg.jpg)

(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket064/057_zpspy0nvsme.jpg)
the rest of the truck, kind of a mixed bag of lumber

Cooke is the IH dealer here, a few units parked out in front
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket064/070_zps7uaiorox.jpg)
last time we caught this skip truck, it was mounted on an IH 9670, strange for this type of unit but it was sharp, now he upgraded to a KW T800W
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket064/072_zpsbwgjdxan.jpg)
it looks a though he is part of the scrap metal operations here
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket064/071_zpscifvubla.jpg)
a pair of Coronado MK ll's in different format , one for Arrow Transportation and one for the local Berry & Smith

Ford LTLA looks fine on duty as a dump truck

Skaha Lake is at the bottom end of Penticton, we took a drive around the lake which ended up at OK Falls and back to HWY 97, then  on our way back to town, a view point look out is the setting for an inbound Tim Horton's, he had left the pup at the weigh Scales just a few miles back.
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket064/061_zpsuv6hkxjw.jpg)

Near a hamlet of Olalla, between Penticton and Keremeos on HWY 3C stopped in for some gas, an old highway coach sits in the back

Thanks guys for the comments' glad you're enjoying! That FLC was a favorite for me too, so glad I turned around to see what the noise was, would have liked to get a better shot but at least I got him!

Hanky, we didn't really plan on a stay, we stopped for lunch and realized we had a few minutes to spare, decided to explore your town! Never seen that area before, was thankful we did! Yielded to a lot of photo ops! Here is one you will recognize!
the newer W/S plow truck from Hayes Canyon Road Maintenance

After leaving Princeton, a few randoms on the way didn't really turn out so well but this one just had to be posted, 3 classics returning from the show winding thru the curves and hills
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket050/156_zps3fzk7rdg.jpg)
in Hope, grabbing a coffee, going past Tim's was this FLD Classic XL towing an Arrow tractor
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket035/183_zpshkbi3hpz.jpg)
that pretty much was it, not too much really cool stuff on the move between there and home, we move into the local scene with randoms from Langley, a cool 1958 Chevy works daily, this time hauling a cool 50's GMC flat deck!

a 379
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket089/049_zps03bpbay3.jpg)
fine touch, more then one of the trucks have this
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket089/053_zpscntmhifq.jpg)
sitting off to the side is another 379, very cool!
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket089/050_zpsbqjlqakc.jpg)
not limited to Peterbilt, a KW W900L fits in too

Any chance you took more pictures of the Old Skool wine red and white flattop Pete ? I took some pictures of an Old Skool Pete last fall that looked very similiar to that but it had single square headlights and a small bunk.I am curious if it is the same truck.The black 379 Old Skool parks in Barriere at night.

I didn't take any more Rob, the sun was quite low already and I wasn't really getting at it from the fence side. They are sharp trucks for sure, I'm up that way on weekends it seems so maybe I can capture him again!

Friday a new (older) truck on with Ocean's O/O Div. showed up, the sun was out, gorgeous day, took the opportunity to shoot this KW W900L
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket052/007_zpsdfoyhgj9.jpg)
the other side
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket052/008_zpspsmtuma8.jpg)
then later in the day, the boss hooked the race car trailer on behind the FLD 120 Classic, makes for a cool combo
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket052/010_zpsde3i5dat.jpg)

A while back, the Triple Seven Peterbilt 379 was re-done, fellow member mentioned he had seen it for sale, yes, it was and sold, all the long hoods are now gone :(, triple seven is now a nicely appointed 579 that I missed a couple weeks ago. I'll catch him next time.

Leaving for the weekend to go to the Island, Duncan the destination, who should roll up to the booth at the Tsawassen Ferry Terminal but Ocean in the sweet 377 AE
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket052/016_zpsyqc4atpu.jpg)
once aboard the Queen of Alberni, I went down to the truck deck as this is a busier run for trucks but they pack them in so tight you can't get a look at  let alone a shot of most, this is 2 I did manage to catch from the front
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket052/017_zpseijktyrs.jpg)
and this one, I couldn't even find the Ocean 377, it was tight
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket052/38cbedd0-094e-4d64-bebf-63d7c8613483_zpskpcmwxkt.jpg)

The purpose of the Duncan trip was to take in the ATHS Antique Truck Show in Duncan, which is part of the Forestry Museum of that region, if that is your interest, it would be worth while but just for truck content it wasn't a big show at all, interesting none the less with some trucks I have never seen. Here are a few of the ones I seen on the Saturday
a 46 Chevy "Wurlitzer"
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Island%20Trip%20Feb%202014/028_zpspgd0lebl.jpg)
a 1953 Dodge D5 from Duman Transport of Duncan BC was outstanding complete with trailer and load of lumber
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Island%20Trip%20Feb%202014/026_zpscumuhvx6.jpg)
1957 Studebaker Transtar is always a welcome truck IMO
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Island%20Trip%20Feb%202014/029_zpsni8fiwzm.jpg)
a truck show on the Island would not be complete without a Hayes present, this is one fine example, I think it is a 1974 owned by Cam Rizzie, thanks Hanky
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Island%20Trip%20Feb%202014/027_zps5o3l8aii.jpg)
and of course there is this awesome 1955 Hayes Clipper from Ross Stevens
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Island%20Trip%20Feb%202014/039_zpsiwfic4wh.jpg)
interesting Peterbilt 359 with a V12 Detroit  on board, I guess it must be a 12V71, not very bashful as the hood is cut away to show it off
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Island%20Trip%20Feb%202014/025_zpsz7uqpnvs.jpg)
I didn't get much info on all these trucks, bad on my part as I can't remember now, I think this is a 1935 Ford
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Island%20Trip%20Feb%202014/030_zpsyq1vg7be.jpg)
a vintage needle nose Peterbilt is a project in the works
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Island%20Trip%20Feb%202014/037_zpsnzfyzgzs.jpg)
I have only seen pictures of this H-67 Mack till now, was good to see it
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Island%20Trip%20Feb%202014/032_zpslyiujde6.jpg)
the Horseless Carriage IH Transtar ll is nice to see in person too
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Island%20Trip%20Feb%202014/036_zps3znnpbh8.jpg)

Post by: Hanky on July 21, 2015, 10:10:21 AM
The Hayes is a 1974 and has a RTO 9513 transmission and a 350 Cummins in it.  The truck is owned by Cam Rizzie,  himself and his 13 year old son Peter have been working on it for the last 5 years.  Looks like it came out of the factory with colors they did a great job. :)

After the show, we took a few drives around the area to see the sights, and the sights included seeing Ladysmith where we seen this Mack Midliner-from Surrey oddly enough!
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket052/107_zpsxjbxc6tr.jpg)
Ladysmith is a pretty town on the water, enjoyed the harbour but as there were no more trucks to find, we went back north towards Chemainus, these next shots all come from the industrial exit

the last day of our trip we went West on Hwy #18 to see Lake Cowichan, a nice town that has had history in logging and I believe there is a paper mill there too,the one and only truck I shot was this old Ford vacuum truck
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Island%20Trip%20Feb%202014/152_zpsr5hdac5k.jpg)
that road continues on to Pt Renfrew and and back to Sooke then into Victoria, a rounder that would be good to take on day, we opted to head back and up thru Nanaimo, as we rolled up to the ferry terminal, they stopped us on the road and surprised us by , "no reservations,get in this lane".......not what I intended, that put a damper on the city sites as we waited two sailings to get to Horseshoe Bay, This was the only truck boarding that sailing that went before us, a KW T800 tanker that had supplied fuel to aircraft fighting fires!

that was it for the Island trip

Here is one from last week, a KW K100, looks to be an ex Williams Moving tractor converted to a farm truck
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket001/005_zpspf23buae.jpg)

we opted to stay in town for the long weekend, major vacation period, looks like a ghost town, we headed on an excursion to North Vancouver over the Second Narrows Bridge -a song about this span from the late Stompin Tom Conners is worth a listen.
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket101/057_zps2vrcwrb7.jpg)
this was taken after we had been in town for a bit finding this fine location to relax

after exiting, we went to the the North East of North Vancouver , something we had never done oddly enough, finding this next set, first on from Ocean Concrete
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket090/004_zpskobxhqao.jpg)
next street over is Remple Bros, batch plant. a Mack Granite loaded out
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket090/006_zpsb6sxf5up.jpg)
and one coming in empty
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket090/012_zpspum8d2pq.jpg)
a chemical plant along the water makes the scene for this Peterbilt Tractor, one would think a tanker of sorts would be his steady run but none in site
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket090/007_zps5ngro9m6.jpg)
another chemical Plant next door with an incredible work Safety record, 4,000 some odd days without an injury, not bad!
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket090/010_zpst2gzujgg.jpg)
we continued to Deep Cove, a unique port on the water, long weekend, hot sunny weather, standing room only in town, we cruised thru and left, across the freeway again trying to find the water back, Paylees Towing hangs their hat here, they serve the Sea To Sky Hwy
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket090/016_zps7ofqaxau.jpg)
for the bigger tasks, this 378 should get it done
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket090/015_zps1i70o6ya.jpg)
then there were a lot of trucks from Headwater Management parked in the streets, this T880 being one of their newest ones
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket090/014_zpsfjinuxss.jpg)
Vancouver Pile Driving has an old Freightliner COE on site, my kind of Park, walk, water, industry....life's good.
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket090/032_zpsi19wm6kd.jpg)

Double Bonus:
as we searched for the water, this awesome Park is situated in a small inlet-same Park as above- we were able to walk along the inlet to the Burrard inlet viewing the activities along the way

Interesting pictures. Seem to be lot of tri-drive trucks in your area. I have always been intrigued by those  narrow Ultraliner day cab. UPS still had many of them in the beginning of the 2000 decade. I like your sceneries pics specially the ducks and the Port of Vancouver.

Another great series. Nice trucks pics with interesting background and sceneries. BTW, I used to see once in a while a ulster truck around but I have not seen them for quite some time now.

Post by: JJG on August 07, 2015, 11:05:00 PM
Monday being the holiday, we took a run over to Richmond, check out the airport and the goings on. On the map it shows a road going around the airport along the water, we set out to find that road but it is for Airport traffic only, however, you can get to the south and north of the it, some really cool spots to watch planes. There is also a park, Iona Park which has a 4.5 KM pier out into the ocean that you can walk, we did the walk and the planes were taking off over the water. Pretty cool, always marvel at the fact these big birds can fly.

btw, being as I am not a hunter, I decided not to name these birds or shoot at them Rob and Charlie ::)............well, I did but only with a Nkon

First stop, Purolator, last time I took pictures here of the line-up, the trucks all had Purolator on the doors and were white, this time  mixed colours and different names
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket004/010_zpszsqv1icq.jpg)
just around the corner, a side shot of a KW W900L from Aerstream
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket004/009_zpsljl45zcq.jpg)
beside them is FedEx, a couple of Freightliner M2 straight trucks are visible with the air freight containers
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket004/008_zpsylc0fqrz.jpg)
on the North side, a Volvo tractor appears to be catching up on his sleep or watching planes, on the edge of Canada's west, the ocean is behind him
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket004/024_zpspmcjjli9.jpg)
Shell Aviation Fuel tanker at the south terminal
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket004/015_zpsg8brnbbc.jpg)

I suppose it being the holiday there weren't as many trucks going about their usual so we focused on some planes and the big walk on the pier.
from the pier, here comes one
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket004/043_zpsjzp1oc2j.jpg)
they come up out a cluster of trees at the end of the runway, go figure, when you hear them, they are lifting off quick.
this is the underside of a British Airways 747 or 767, can't really tell the difference but I love the way the huge birds are so graceful, appear to be going slower then small one but the sound is awesome!
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket004/044_zps7qwkbzpd.jpg)


Double Bonus Shots:

The south terminal is the home terminal of Pacific Coastal Airlines, they have a combo of float planes and a small turbo prop fleet, this one was outbound as we went by
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket004/012_zpstlknq79h.jpg)
he waited for an inbound floater, then turned around and put er to the wind!! Very impressive power!
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket004/014_zps3s6qfc05.jpg)

OK, the next post will be ONLY of trucks, I promise! Tomorrow is "Chrome For Kids", a truck show held at Mission Raceway Park, proceeds going to Children's Hospital. Gonna be fun!

Jim.

I liked the shots of the float plane,different than the usual float planes with the floats underneath.I am glad to hear that you are going to the Chrome for Kids show.I heard about it when I was down there and wished we would have been down there this weekend instead of last weekend.Looking forward to seeing some pictures.

Interesting tour around the airport and impressive pics of the float plane.
Title: Re: RANDOM SHOTS FROM BC
Post by: Rob Archer on August 08, 2015, 04:31:51 AM
A nice tour of YVR. Here in Toronto it is a majority Air Canada and WestJet interspliced with others.
Is Vancouver the same?
I liked the float planes too.
That looks like a cool Cargo Area but yeah not much activity would be happening on a Holiday Monday.
Keep the pictures and tours coming.

Title: Re: RANDOM SHOTS FROM BC
Post by: JJG on August 09, 2015, 01:00:56 AM
Thanks guys, glad you enjoy the pictures of non trucks, it is interesting too!

Rob G. you picked a better weekend weather wise to be here, we had a dry summer so far but this weekend is one of the first for some rain........lucked out at the show, till about 5:30, we just left and it rained!

Rob A. Vancouver is same. mostly Air Canada, West Jet is strong too but they are also the major airline out of Abbottsford.

Then a few of my favorites from the show today:

the preservation of the COE's is alive and well these days, more and more seem to surface at the shows, awesome, this late 80's Freightliner is for sale!
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/BC%20Big%20Rig%202013/002_zpsoi59svie.jpg)
a CAT powered 1986 KW K100 is a new one to me, shows up well
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/BC%20Big%20Rig%202013/010_zps3cacysbs.jpg)
a little on the radical side for me but it is definitely a show truck, this 379 has somewhat departed from its roots
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/BC%20Big%20Rig%202013/037_zpszrpsqw9g.jpg)
this 1991 KW W900 is sharp, think it is the same one I spotted in Sidney in the makings a year ago, if it is , looks grand all done
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/BC%20Big%20Rig%202013/030_zps0lsyfccg.jpg)
this long nose KW looked to be very original, weather beaten well but still awesome, from New Mexico
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/BC%20Big%20Rig%202013/048_zpsfsraf33c.jpg)
this fleet from Northside Transport of Abbottsford is impressive
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/BC%20Big%20Rig%202013/052_zpsc2rrx0si.jpg)
Rob G mentioned this company, Trick Transport of Kamloops, I see why he had an interest, this is a fine example of one of their trucks, a stunning 2007 Peterbilt
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/BC%20Big%20Rig%202013/040_zpsj3edd0ua.jpg)
this 1984 Peterbilt 359 is outanding, just taken out of service, now going in for some TLC, I think it looks great as is!
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/BC%20Big%20Rig%202013/100_zps6m99nirk.jpg)
another KW W900 long nose
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/BC%20Big%20Rig%202013/011_zpsl0vgoejp.jpg)
I have a lot of respect for those entering a working truck, this great wood chip B train is outstanding, takes a lot to keep the tractor clean but then the trailers too? NICE!
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/BC%20Big%20Rig%202013/15a867de-7690-4e85-9c13-808d40af4fa3_zpsqaxqxjkr.jpg)

The hosts of the show, ZZ Chrome, had their cool '67 needle nose Peterbilt on display
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/BC%20Big%20Rig%202013/031_zps0v3tjchp.jpg)

I seen that Freightliner COE last fall and talked to the driver.It was a low mileage truck that pulled some kind of an electrical trailer that was parked on the jobsite.When I was at ZZ Chrome last week I seen that W900A longhood aerodyne tucked in their shop.I couldn't get a picture but seen inside it.Beautiful truck with a KTA Cummins and two sticks.Since then I have learned it was kind of a famous truck that was in magazines.Also if anyone has the late Stan Holtzman's book Semi Truck,Color History you can find it in there.If you don't have that book I would suggest get it .

although this truck is new, the way it is spec'd out makes me think it will be show worthy for years to come, Seminole paint scheme, nice! The back side of the trailer was shown earlier here. Would like to see this one at night.

And that will do, was a great show, hope it will see a 2nd Annual, I'm sure they are deciding as we speak!

No problem Rob, was a great show for it being a first of, hope they do it here again, much nicer spot really. The BC Big Ric show was held here in the starting days of it, raced trucks on the track and all, great entertainment value. That day may not come back however, they said the trucks were too heavy for the track. Guess they might be!

Glad you liked it, wanted to go and get another look at it that day, I guess when it started to rain we were at a point where we left instead of going in again, We had hoped to go back Sunday but it never worked out, sharp looking old unit though.

Bowcott is from the Island? I won't be seeing these around much then. The 2016 KW in seminole scheme belongs to a girl, Christen, she just got it in time for the show!

Last weekend we ended up in Chilliwack on Sunday, knowing the Abbottsford Air Show was on, we went that direction intentionally and caught the Snowbirds doing there show- from a distance mind you- then we proceeded to Chilliwack where this KW C500 and an old LT 9000 Ford look to be retired

Micra...Used to see one Western Star of theirs pulling Curtain Side Supers around here (Kelowna)
every couple of weeks.
Now a couple years later I see maybe 4 or five different rigs of theirs around pretty much daily.

Their business must be flourishing in these parts. 8)

Thanks Charlie, it was going to be my guess, wanted to look it up and time kinda got away on me! There is a dock on the other side of the river -that is then Richmond- up stream slightly, that's where there is an auto off loading facility! It is on my list of things to check out there.

That may be the case Renee, I wondered about that colour, thought of Scott-Lynn but it isn't a reefer so not likely. It has the look of a Stoughton but the front corners are round, no manufacturer plate visible. The trailer # is 053-9218 if that helps any.

I've seen this trailer(?) in Kelowna quite a bit and I thought it was an old (or taken over) Can Am West trailer.

Here is a pic of a Fortier/Boostway  rig taken at the end of August 2008 along highway 15 in Lacolle. Trailer is a Manac  .  The trailer in Jim pic look quite like it but he may have been completely repainted because we dont see any ghost lettering and  the Manac tag have been removed. I have never seen number on the side    of Fortier trailers  except for  the 48' or 53'  for the length  .

while #3 HWY is an awesome drive, it is not used much by truckers, mostly just those servicing the towns between. It is hard to catch one in action in a safe location, this one was coming down Allison Pass -same place as the "no truck" picture, we are now going up- I shot it from the passenger side thru the windshield while wife was driving.

Off to Saltspring Island for a relaxing weekend, waiting to board the ferry, this Island Asphalt Paving tanker rolled up, I have caught him on the ferry before. We boarded one for the Southern Gulf Islands where there is no truck traffic where as he would board for Victoria (Schwartz Bay)
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket092/006_zpsmpxzy0ch.jpg)
a Peterbilt 579(?) also rolled up, not sure if he was bound for Duke Point (Nanaimo) or Schwartz Bay
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket092/003_zpszotv7lxw.jpg)
as mentioned, no truck traffic here on Saltspring, did catch this tree service IH 4900 near Ganges
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket092/013_zps5rvmvc6p.jpg)
other trucks spotted have been posted on our last visit, this time though Hall #2 had the trucks out for some sun tanning
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket092/017_zpstgljofaf.jpg)
it isn't easy to get off the Island without reservations, our Long Harbour departure was full, went to Fulford Harbour (to Victoria), 2 sailing wait, we would then have to transfer back to the mainland so either way, the easiest way off was at Vesuvius Bay to Crofton (almost mid way between Victoria and Nanaimo) -drove right on- so that is how we got off, now on Vancouver Island, wanted to check out Nanaimo, haven't been there in a bit - well, we were but got in line to the ferry and that ended that. This time we looked around a bit first, then headed in to the terminal (Departure Bay) and waited 4 hrs to catch the 2nd one to Vancouver (Horseshoe Bay)
in Nanaimo, this IH 9400 posed for this shot
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket092/018_zpsj0kdbcaz.jpg)

Interesting old model 348 - most had single headlamps, this one has dual lamps.    Tim Ramble Mode On:  348 debuted around '70 with a fiberglass hood.  A wide-front version, the 349 debuted in the early 80s.   349 became 357 and later 367/365.

As soon as I came to the last pic of the 348 Pete it got me to thinking that I need to go
pick up the one rotting away on the farm back in Saskatchewan.
Have not laid eyes on it for several years, it was pretty rough then.

It was driven to the spot where it sits, while still safetied..

Set up as a dump truck. It layed the foundation and paved many a mile there.

318 "Screaming Jimmy" (Detroit) with a 5 &4.

Thanks for the pics.

Have not laid eyes on it for several years, it was pretty rough then.

It was driven to the spot where it sits, while still safetied..

Set up as a dump truck. It layed the foundation and paved many a mile there.

318 "Screaming Jimmy" (Detroit) with a 5 &4.

Thanks for the pics.

-Ted

You could get that one back on the farm, then if you need some good parts, this one might have what you need?

A few more from the Mack dealership
a Granite, Vision Pinnacle and Titan lined up, should have got a better shot of the Titan really
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket004/027_zpsweotl0uh.jpg)
looks like a fine Granite for a dump application

the back side of the old B model mixer

this Granite looks pretty sharp with spoke flotations on the steer

very clean FLD 120 Classic at the Mack dealer

the Volvo Dealer is next door - who would think- and this new VNL looks quite nice in the day cab format

a VHD model in for service

I think this is a KW C500(?) LW848, either way, sharp looking old logging truck @ Mack
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket004/028_zpsibl6w5wg.jpg)
there goes the Queen of Oak Bay, should have been on that sailing, missed it by 4 cars :(. that ads another 2 hrs. Now, on that sailing was a IH Lonestar, he rolled in last minute, obviously had reservations, couldn't shoot him as he entered, figured we would be on that boat to cath him on it, he got on, we did not, no photo :(
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket053/044_zpsdjv67ija.jpg)

right after that shot, a float plane emerged from the waters of Nanaimo Harbour and lifted off in time to avoid the vessel....as he should ::)

This...
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket053/038_zpsdtw2iw2t.jpg)
...is, if my information is correct, the new VNX model. Apparently a VNL for beefier applications, which would explain the flotation tires. As it turns out, apparently, the "chrome" grille and bumper are the main spotting points for the VNX.

Thanks for the info Jan, that is interesting, should have paid more attention to it but the fact it had the chrome bumper and flotation tires caught my attention to shoot it. Will it be replacing the VHD model? I hope not, I actually like that VHD -in the set forward axle version better the SBA. It still has a rugged look.

The instrument panel appears to the Dash of Class, so it's post '77.  Not much else cosmetically changed on 348 over the years.

I don't think the VNX will replace the VHD, but rather fit in between the VNL and VHD. It seems it is supposed to be a heavy haul tractor. Btw, I only learned of the VNX's existence myself a couple of weeks ago. Never seen one in person, either.

Here is Volvo's info page on it: http://www.volvotrucks.com/trucks/global/en-gb/trucks/new-trucks/Volvo_VNX/Pages/volvo_vnx.aspx

Oct 1, snow tires are mandatory in all mountain regions, this meant the last weekend for the summer cruiser, with a beautiful weekend at hand a day trip was in order! We decided to take a drive along the Canyon on the TCH, first stop was the rest area near Hope. A KW T600B EB loaded with boards
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket164/005_zpsnamfdyt9.jpg)
Sunday isn't the best day for truck photography but it's better then not having any, was the only day we could get away.
a custom Peterbilt with US spec'd trailer makes a pass EB heading into the mountains

Thanks Ted, yeah that sums it it up well!! :)

All right, carry on then to Yale, just this side of town, there is a rest area where this Monarch of Edmonton was taking a break
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket164/020_zpsmshdbze9.jpg)
You can always catch a Vedder Peterbilt on the move in BC any day of the week, this one, a 388 day cab is likely loaded with garbage from the city hauling to a landfill near Ashcroft, he will return with wood chips from mills in the area
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket164/021_zpstdbiybcc.jpg)
just after he went by I shot him going thru town, then a bear -not a cop- ran across the street into the market area, most didn't seem to take much notice,
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket164/022_zpseb4toyb7.jpg)
we set out again and head right into a series of 5 or 6 tunnels, this one is first, Yale tunnel, a Volvo WB is coming at us, Judi shooting from the passenger side
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket164/040_zpsa5wfwiom.jpg)
between teh tunnels, a KW T680 leans into a curve
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket094/024_zpsolj7spxs.jpg)
out of the tunnel and we catch up to Vedder chuggin along, you don't make good time pulling heavy in the hills
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket164/029_zpsij99tqtc.jpg)
we went as far as Boston Bar, I believe that is it for the tunnels, scanned them from our side to see which ones would be "parking friendly" on the "out" side. China Bar and Hell's gate tunnel both offer parking on the west entrance so we set up for some pics, took forever for this Hino to emerge, thought I had a big one but just this, kinda like fishing, wait to see. The noise as they come thru is hard to decipher if it is a truck, RV or motorbike for that matter, quite the sound
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket164/042_zpsuvcag1st.jpg)
wifey didn't feel safe at this one so we went to Hell's Gate tunnel for this set, much bigger parking area
waiting for one to exit - I missed one- so I shot this one going in EB, Rite-Line Trucking
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket164/052_zpsvtxw9ivn.jpg)

waited too long to shoot this fine B-train chip hauler and a little automobile interfered
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket164/059_zps2yx5liay.jpg)
I want to say this can't be the same Vedder, I was thinking one was coming out but it was an RV, so I shot Vedder going in, one more second and the vintage Mopar would have been in better view
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket094/057_zpsaykkzt79.jpg)
waited for at least one good one and this was it, a custom Peterbilt m/t B-train came out of the darkness
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket164/060_zpsorbzmi6q.jpg)

The Vedder Pete is a model 367 (note the arched slope to the hood.  388 doesn't have the arch).

Dang!! Mr. Tim, you probably did -no you did- but......I looked at this side profile so many times before listing what it is, it thought the 367 had to be a long hood, set back axle with or without air breathers is where I got confused but I see I am still confused!! I do see the arched hod.......so 367 it is, lessen learned........for today that is!!  Thanks Tim!

A few more from last weekend yet, from Abbottsford, you can't be in town without catching a Vedder Transport, this one is just leaving the terminal
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket056/009_zpsu4pcs40p.jpg)
one from the wood chip/trash hauling division
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket056/013_zpsn3z4gm7j.jpg)
one more leaving from the tanker division
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket056/025_zpsfyqy5p0f.jpg)
these were all at All Rig Collision, wonder if they were the ex-Bison units that Vedder bought, all in for the colour change?
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket056/027_zpssthrelfn.jpg)
another look at this flat top 389, never noticed the painted custom visor on it till now
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket056/024_zpsxy4pxtsk.jpg)

Bonus Shot:

I shot this truck sitting in the back of Clearbrook Mills, a twin steer SBA COE feed truck, it appears to be retired. The hydro pole doesn't exactly thrill me but the truck does :)

All of the 386's in your pic are "Vedder spec" - Ultra Extended Daycabs, upright DPF's behind the cab on the daycabs, etc.

Thanks Tim, do you know what the Bison specs where/are? I read somewhere that Bison was not happy with the LNG trucks, Vedder loves them so they bought most of what Bison got rid of, an amount of 15 - 20 tractors comes to mind. Vedder was to re-paint them and change a few specs(?) before bringing them into service.

Friday morning, right next door to where I work, this FLD is only a 1/4 mile from home, got too close to edge and laid it over
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket035/001_zpsjs2lemkp.jpg)
doesn't look good for the tractor

this is a 379 heading into the US @ Pac Hwy Crossing
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket078/011_zpsu1jcsxhy.jpg)
this is a truck coming out of the US that has BC plates on it, hauling a trailer from Transport Alaska and it also has plates from Alaska on the trailer.

(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket078/010_zpsbxrllmnj.jpg)
I spotted it about a month ago but it is on a busier rural rd, lucked out and found a break in traffic to stop and shoot.

That Scania is a rare (for here) bird!

I've never seen one in person.

Is it a straight truck or a motorhome? Hard to tell in the photo.

Good question Ted, I looked at the photo again -close up- and I see it has a window near the top front but that is all I can see. I'll have to do another drive by and see if I can get a better look, sitting quite a ways off the road tho!

Wow! That is incredible, how did yo find that out? I didn't take in the address but it is on 40th Ave however the property may very well join the 240th side road, that would be why the 240th Address. I don't live far from there, this weekend I will swing by and see if there is a greenhouse on that location! If so, excellent opportunity to roll in for a visit....unless of course it is a private greenhouse business, then I will have to come up with an other plan!

Dutchy: I went looking again, the Scania is before 224th St on 40th Ave, I went to 240
            and 40th, there are a few small greenhouses on site, no sign there and
            no sign at the other location or green house.

Been a bit since I have been out, beautiful sunny day today and no fog around the waters made for a good excuse to take a few shots. Annacis Island is a part of Delta, primarily an Island along the Fraser River that is home to industry only, as far as I know there is no residential areas at all so there are quite a few trucks parked around for the weekend. On a weekday it is very busy having both a container and auto/vehicle ports.
The first one I shot was this Western Star with a bunk scrap metal container and pup
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/Jimmyjacobs_bucket071/001_zpsxwptltlv.jpg)

Last time I set out to catch this Argosy Super Truck from Manitoulin, they have a terminal on Annacis Island (Delta), found the terminal and one was there but I could not get a shot. Today I stopped in at Vancouver Freightliner and wow, there it is! Looks more impressive hooked into a 53' Tridem but still, I got him!!

this M2 was of interest to me, large fuel tank for a straight truck and that is one long box

"Super" catch on the Manitoulin.
Looks like the new Western Star is going on with CNTL.
Lots of good catches from the past couple of postings.
There is a Unisource tractor here in Mississauga that is painted as Veritev  but the small name of the door still reads Unisource.

Good catch Jim. I like the Manitoulin Argosy glider and the Star 5700 XE.

I am glad to see you caught one of Manitoulin's Argosys out your way.I just noticed that linup of Murdy trucks in your earlier post.If you look close the Pete on the left has one hole aluminum wheels,I think they look cool.I took pictures of it several years ago,glad to to see it's still around.

Thanks guys for the comments!

Rob G, I didn't notice the wheels on that Peterbilt at the time, I should have taken a close up of that, I don't think that truck is on the road any longer but at least they still have it, looks good!

Took a trip out to Chilliwack this weekend, lots of rain, did get some pictures out of the batch though. First up is this Cascadia EB on the TCH taken out of the hotel window.........yeah, we asked for a room viewing the highway.........she gave us a bit of an odd look but then yes, of course!! Really had to zoom way out so most shots didn't come up all that well

an FLD120 Classic still gets favor for the camera, it is a little rough but could clean up into a sharp unit. It had a Nevada plate on it

Nice variety, that West Coast Amusements COE is pretty spanky and new for them. ;)

Love the bonus shot, same general spec and colour of differing breed.

Interesting set of pictures.  The Lonestar is definitely different, and I haven't seen that piece on the grille before; with that said I don't like the way it looks at all.

Oh, and by the way, that Peterbilt COE a few posts back, reply #1098, is a model 220.  I believe it's essentially a rebadged DAF model, and there's also a Kenworth version called the K370/K270.  Interesting catch as those little PACCAR cabovers have always seemed to be pretty rare.

Ted: West Coast Amusements has quite the fleet, I thought maybe 10 trucks over the years but they have a lot more there now, got to see if i can get into the compound one day, some unique units.

Rob G, thanks, that is an awesome shot, I never seen that one the day I went years ago but certainly nothing I have ever seen before, must have cost a pretty penny.

Iowa 80:Thanks for the info, I had since learned that indeed it is Daf, the picture above it had the KW in behind the T300, they had it parked quite tight in so I never took the shot, 2 for 2 in 2 minutes :)

moving on, still in Chilliwack, Sutco KW T800 Chip Hauler
