Title: September 2017 LTOP
Post by: Rob Archer on March 26, 2018, 04:06:24 AM
By this time I was starting to despair about my (former) laptop but thought "what the heck, I'll go and do another LTOP and see what happens". This would be the last oen though.

They had been rebuilding the Overpass for most of the year.

The main work was done overnight to lessen the impact on local traffic.

The golden rod was blooming

They were followed by another Kenworth.

Thanks; I hope to get up there this coming month to start my 2018.

And we continue..........
I can't read the name of whoever operates the sharp Lonestar grain hauler. A International Prostar from Erb is in the right hand lane.

Can't help you on the model Rob, but this one looks like an ex-Deans tractor.

Joseph Haulage from Stoney Creek has a large fleet of dumps and flat decks. they have a smaller fleet of tankers.

I thought it looked like a Deans tractor too.

I guess I should have finished this off the other day since there are only three more pictures to post.

A scrap hauler - name I can't make out. The trailer looks like it's carried a few loads in it's time.
(https://bulk-share.slickpic.com/album/share/3DjzYMxzN3xYYY/14802305.1/600/p/ltop-sep-021.jpg) (https://www.slickpic.com/share/3DjzYMxzN3xYYY/albums/LTOP-August-2017/photo?view=14802305#14802305)

Then....
HAY!!!!!!!!!!!
Two loads of hay finished the afternoon's sightings off.
The International pulling a B Train nearly outran the camera.

and the Peterbilt seemed like a good finish to the day.

And, that was it for truck pictures from my Overpass.
The computer problems were too expensive to be worthwhile so I just switched to my Smart-Phone.
Smart-Phone pictures from my overpass wouldn't be worth taking.
So, now it's nearly April so I hope to get back up there and see what action I can record....very soon.
