So, here we are. 2018.
The last day of April and finally it warmed up and the sun came out.

We kick off with a Freightliner hauling steel but I cannot read the carrier name on the door.

So, I went up to the overpass a couple of weeks ago to get a LTOP session but I wasn't pleased with my results.
It was a cloudy yet bright day and I couldn't see the images on my camera screen properly so I was shooting "by guess".

July 2018 - Friday the Thirteenth

Unfortunately I missed getting up to my Overpass in June.
However, a nice summer day meant I would shove other tasks aside and get a few pictures.

Walking to my spot I saw this sharp Peterbilt with a coill of steel on the deck. Too far away to make a carrier identification it was worth a picture.
(https://bulk-share.slickpic.com/album/share/TINzOOjOMOyUEx/15218404.1/600/p/ltop-0713-001.jpg) (https://www.slickpic.com/share/TINzOOjOMOyUEx/albums/LTOP-2018/photo?view=15218404#15218404)

I saw a Mack wearing Trimac colours but pulling a flat deck approaching. I thought it must be a former Trimac working for someone else but the trailer had Trimac's name on it too. A rare non tank Trimac spotting.

I'm not sure who runs this Western Star daycab but they use a former Earl Paddock trailer.

The FL M class seems to have those trusses loaded every which way. :o Down my way they're usually just hanging off the trailer on one side only.

Charlie...that load certainly looks lopsided but I would have to assume it must be loaded safely.
That company ships lots of those every day and there is a weigh-inspection station between their place of business and where I took the pictures.

OK, there are a few more to add

King of the Roads - I thought was from Brampton but it is actually from (Rexdale) Etobicoke.
(https://bulk-share.slickpic.com/album/share/yLM2zVMzMYOMwx/15228889.1/600/p/ltop-0713-021.jpg) (https://www.slickpic.com/share/yLM2zVMzMYOMwx/albums/LTOP-2018/photo?view=15228889#15228889)
The name and the look of the Volvo and trailer struck me as one of the Brampton Boyz. That whole industrial commercial area sprawls around the Toronto airport - Rexdale on the east side; Brampton to the north and Mississauga to the west. (ok, I'll stop blathering now  ;))

Here's one for the LTL guys - a set of Yellow pups pulled by an International LT.
(https://bulk-share.slickpic.com/album/share/MM3I,Z3MT1MMQY/15228890.1/600/p/ltop-0713-022.jpg) (https://www.slickpic.com/share/MM3I,Z3MT1MMQY/albums/LTOP-2018/photo?view=15228890#15228890)
The tractor is a rental/lease from Maxxim. This is actually a Reimer

Here we have a sharp looking T800 from Moore Bros of Brampton.
(https://bulk-share.slickpic.com/album/share/TDgAuTVDVVxjEV/15228891.1/600/p/ltop-0713-023.jpg) (https://www.slickpic.com/share/TDgAuTVDVVxjEV/albums/LTOP-2018/photo?view=15228891#15228891)

It was followed by this Pete 386 with a B train. Unknown carrier and I'm not sure what the cargo is.
(https://bulk-share.slickpic.com/album/share/045yNzM204NT2O/15228892.1/600/p/ltop-0713-024.jpg) (https://www.slickpic.com/share/045yNzM204NT2O/albums/LTOP-2018/photo?view=15228892#15228892)

And; this update finishes with a bus.
Heartland is a charter coach company from the Twin Cities area. Two of these were running - from my research they are probably on a Niagara Falls and Toronto tour.

Not sure but the Century class Freightliner looks clean. I doubt it gets driven too many miles a year hauling the whatchamacallit.

The aggregate hauler is a KW T800, and a very sharp one too.  ;)
The last shot is interesting, the Century has an NRC Quickswap unit (http://nrc-industries.com/equipment/quickswap/quick-swap/), and is pulling what I believe is a Portable Frac Tank (https://www.rbauction.com/frac-tank?cid=1931291104). :)

July 25 Continued


Next comes a Zoom - a Western Star from Cole Carriers Corp -a steelhauler from Hamilton - is being passed by an International (I think we have an LT) that looks to be a lobster hauler from the Maritime Provinces. Maybe Lee Dugas can id this one.
(https://bulk-share.slickpic.com/album/share/,WQMWO532,jRMh/15256858.1/600/p/ltop-0725-011.jpg) (https://www.slickpic.com/share/,WQMWO532,jRMh/albums/LTOP-2018/photo?view=15256858#15256858)

Then we have a Sterling from Walker Environmental.
(https://bulk-share.slickpic.com/album/share/AYkiNwMTMN5TEI/15256859.1/600/p/ltop-0725-012.jpg) (https://www.slickpic.com/share/AYkiNwMTMN5TEI/albums/LTOP-2018/photo?view=15256859#15256859)

A Prostar or a newer LT? Keith Hall and Sons from Burford run Internationals. This is likely a liquid sugar trailer.
(https://bulk-share.slickpic.com/album/share/OGQzjOjULOYjI4/15256861.1/600/p/ltop-0725-013.jpg) (https://www.slickpic.com/share/OGQzjOjULOYjI4/albums/LTOP-2018/photo?view=15256861#15256861)

Preston Transport is a long time carrier from Bowmanville, a small town east of Toronto.
(https://bulk-share.slickpic.com/album/share/hN2NDEzjgxjNM1/15256862.1/600/p/ltop-0725-014.jpg) (https://www.slickpic.com/share/hN2NDEzjgxjNM1/albums/LTOP-2018/photo?view=15256862#15256862)

What model of International is this one from Gazzola Paving? This must be a tank load of asphalt from Hamilton.
(https://bulk-share.slickpic.com/album/share/MiUNYUMN1UD4YU/15256863.1/600/p/ltop-0725-015.jpg) (https://www.slickpic.com/share/MiUNYUMN1UD4YU/albums/LTOP-2018/photo?view=15256863#15256863)

Then we have a Cascadia from KimTam Trucking, the in house carrier for Samuel Steel of Burlington.
(https://bulk-share.slickpic.com/album/share/xxhyhNNNDV3QEI/15256897.1/600/p/ltop-0725-016.jpg) (https://www.slickpic.com/share/xxhyhNNNDV3QEI/albums/LTOP-2018/photo?view=15256897#15256897)

A Volvo daycab from Bestway Transport. I actually thought they were out of business; their Mississauga yard has been vacated.
(https://bulk-share.slickpic.com/album/share/jNz5gmwYTwjATU/15256898.1/600/p/ltop-0725-017.jpg) (https://www.slickpic.com/share/jNz5gmwYTwjATU/albums/LTOP-2018/photo?view=15256898#15256898)

Carterm hauling an APL container with a sharp Mustang zipping past in the far lane.
(https://bulk-share.slickpic.com/album/share/3TMIjjTYNuNjYj/15256899.1/600/p/ltop-0725-018.jpg) (https://www.slickpic.com/share/3TMIjjTYNuNjYj/albums/LTOP-2018/photo?view=15256899#15256899)

And we close this LTOP installment with a Cascadia from ACAM Transport from St.Hyacinthe Quebec on the entrance ramp to the highway.
(https://bulk-share.slickpic.com/album/share/Mzyz5IMk4MNLDL/15256900.1/600/p/ltop-0725-019.jpg) (https://www.slickpic.com/share/Mzyz5IMk4MNLDL/albums/LTOP-2018/photo?view=15256900#15256900)

I believe the Keith Hall is a Prostar & the Gazzola Binder is a 7600 which makes a pretty rugged looking road tractor. 8) I like the ACAM Cascadia. :) I see them a lot over in Swedesboro NJ........they seem to have stuck with Freightliners over the years.

August 21 already!
Where is the time going?
I have to apologise for the pictures - I had been trying a different setting earlier in the day and forgot reset the camera.
That being said - they are action pictures that can't be reshot so I am posting them as they come.

Leading off....a Peterbilt daycab from Wilson's Truck Lines heading to the West Mall Etobicoke terminal.
(https://bulk-share.slickpic.com/album/share/TM,OMMc1NNMw1N/15331206.1/600/p/ltop-0821-001.jpg) (https://www.slickpic.com/share/TM,OMMc1NNMw1N/albums/LTOP-2018/photo?view=15331206#15331206)

Coming second is another Peterbilt - unidentified triaxle and stepdeck combo.

A Freightliner Cascadia comes next - it too is unidentified.

The entire fleet of Bokalko Transport from Hamilton is this Freightliner with covered wagon trailer.

I tried to get both of these 10 wheeler straight trucks in the shot. TransOntario Express Kenworth was starting to pull away from the Castrol Oil Freightliner.

I'm posting/saving this picture as it is the only example of St Lambert Transport, a Transforce fleet based in St. Romuald Que., that I have. Of course I'm kicking myself for mostly screwing the shot up.

You know, like I NEED an excuse to go take pictures.

Walking to my favourite spot I see this loaded flatdeck from Crawford Metals heading past.

Here is a Mack from Trimac - I think a jacketed trailer like this is for acid or some other corrosive material.

TFI (Transforce) seems to be pushing the Contrans owned bulk carriers to operate under one name. The bulker in the middle lane has the Contrans Transforce logo but by the time it got in camera range it was passing the Moddom Haulage truck and pony gravel hauler.

So,
Another Truck and pony gravel set. This one is on with Laidlaw. Their dump division must be hiring local trucks for gravel. I see they show as having yards in Milton and Pontypool both of which are places with quarries.

Titanium is a busy carrier. They run Volvos; they made a large purchase of them in 2016.

The shaky shot of the day is this Volvo from Fortigo with a flat deck.

The TRUCK OF THE DAY -WD Potatoes W900 from Beeton apparently on the way home. They run a sharp fleet of Kenworths.
(https://bulk-share.slickpic.com/album/share/EZ1D0m5jw4MTIQ/15341738.1/600/p/ltop-0824-015.jpg) (https://www.slickpic.com/share/EZ1D0m5jw4MTIQ/albums/LTOP-2018/photo?view=15341738#15341738)

Immediately followed by the COULD HAVE BEEN Shot of the Day as Scottlyn headed west. Their "meet" must have been under the overpass.
That would have been a great picture; two of Ontario's shiniest fleets meeting. (Ignore the Mack, the Mack is photo bombing)

Thnaks all for the comments - Charlie ; you should make a journey up here sometime.
I was going to suggest when your Mets are in town but they aren't coming up in 2019. :( It looks like the Dodgers and Rockies - neither of which have any real history with the Blue Jays.
Back to truck pictures.
Laidlaw was the Core acquisition by Dunford that grew into Contrans. They sold to TFI (Transforce)but kept their colour schemes. Now though, the Transforce scheme is starting to appear on most of the Contrans fleets. This is the first example I have seen from Laidlaw.

I haven't finished this update until Tuesday morning.  ::)

Greyhound has been in the news here in Canada. It says it can't make money on many of its western and northern routes and will be scaling their operations back. This bus shows they are serving Toronto International (Pearson) Airport but from where I don't know.

This one is for Wayne Crane! It is his favourite subject when taking truck pics. Unfortunately he's having computer troubles so hasn't seen this pictiure.
Is this a W900 or a T800 High Hood ?

Hermann Transportation is a New Jersey outfit with headquarters in Dayton but I think the trucks are still showing South Brunswick (neighboring town) as the domicile. :-\ Been around as long as I can remember..........the fleet's been upgraded in the last 10 years but prior to that I recall a real hodge podge of power. ;D

So here we are....a mild but windy October day.

Leading off....a Volvo from Keena Leasing and Trucking from Bolton ON

This was a Fancy Ride Peterbilt fleet up to now.

Nova Steel but it doesn't look to be Chriscott Leasing any more.
(https://bulk-share.slickpic.com/album/share/3ykM2NM2Iyj3ID/15519168.1/600/p/ltop-1019-002.jpg) (https://www.slickpic.com/share/3ykM2NM2Iyj3ID/albums/LTOP-2018/photo?view=15519168#15519168)

Then, a new Cascadia for 4Tracks from Winnipeg.
(https://bulk-share.slickpic.com/album/share/zzyMMYjzMLUAV0/15519169.1/600/p/ltop-1019-003.jpg) (https://www.slickpic.com/share/zzyMMYjzMLUAV0/albums/LTOP-2018/photo?view=15519169#15519169)

Schroder Freight from Winnipeg? This company might have gone bankrupt and been restored. The Google links weren't too clear.

I'm not sure why I took this picture of two westbound daycabs. Maybe something interesting was following the ITS eastbound.

Here we go....I am about to run out of Slick Pic space. The first 1000 photos are free.

I think that the can hauler is a little too close to the Gambles trailer.
(https://bulk-share.slickpic.com/album/share/5NMT55ihVzMOzh/15528607.1/600/p/ltop-1019-020.jpg) (https://www.slickpic.com/share/5NMT55ihVzMOzh/albums/LTOP-2018/photo?view=15528607#15528607)
Maybe Gambles moved to the right lane - the can hauler escaped that day at least - I didn't hear of any collisions on the QEW that afternoon.
All he would be able to see would be the trailer doors of the truck ahead; what would happen in a slow traffic area? Don't follow so close!!!!

DRG Trucking from Windsor Ont.

And here is the last batch of pictures from Friday October 19 2018 LTOP.

A steel hauler from Hamilton that I can't read the name on the door. The unit number is 99-02 which probably indicates this Freightliner is nearly 20 years old.
(https://bulk-share.slickpic.com/album/share/2NMzYBY2JE,zW0/15533693.0/600/p/ltop-1019-031.jpg) (https://www.slickpic.com/share/2NMzYBY2JE,zW0/albums/LTOP-2018/photo?view=15533693#15533693)

Another Nova Steel - I wonder what happened to Chriscott

(https://bulk-share.slickpic.com/album/share/VMUUNUNVzZN2zM/15533697.0/600/p/ltop-1019-034.jpg) (https://www.slickpic.com/share/VMUUNUNVzZN2zM/albums/LTOP-2018/photo?view=15533697#15533697)


and we close October out with a ZOOM! - T800 from Briway of Alliston was passing a Highlight Volvo.

Cool catches all around.
