Title: By Truck To the North - I-79 Bridgeville PA
Post by: Paul Kane on May 06, 2018, 07:36:20 PM
Some shots taken Saturday 5/5/18, Canadians likely headed to the GTA

Can't make out all the info on this worn T2.  C..... Transport (CTI) and maybe Mississauga.  The stripes look like Keena's colors, maybe an ex?  Is Flex-Mor still in business?

One of my favorite fleets, Fleetway.  I;ve just recently begun seeing these KW's from them, T880's I think.

Interesting catch on that Flexmore, haven't seen or heard of them in years, I don't have the answer for you though.

Flexmore is now Titanium. More on that later.
I'm not sure what the carrier name is on the T2000 Paul. I've seen him around
And, as far as I know, K-Dac is still owned by Erb.

Update - Thursday May 10 - I saw the T2000 this morning but couldn't read the carrier name.

Saturday 5/12 dawned sunny, breezy, and warm, but with the forcast for the remainder of the weekend pretty crummy, it made it hard to pass up on a run down to the highway even though I had far better things to do.

Executive Transportation, Cobourg ON

I had suggested a possible slogan to the company, "Watch Your Freight Go Boom!", but it was roundly rejected for some reason.  ::) J/K

I've seen that Beyond Colorando couple times in Toronto. Great catches seeing some Canadian known carriers in the states!  8)

Nope; not my boats ...I get seasick.
On a serious note I haven't seen much of Andrews boat hauling division for a few years.
On a more than serious note....you couldn't have had "far better" things but you might have had "other" things to do, Paul.
Nothing better than taking truck pictures on a nice morning.

I should have said "more important" but...you're right, nothing is "better". ;)

Some fine looking rigs there!
The Marcellus 388, the Andrews 379, and the BLM W900L are my picks, very sharp rigs. 8)

The mail hauler is sharp, they have been around for quite some time already, the old Mack looks mint!! The Load 1 is pretty cool too!

Man you found some nice equipment out there Paul! I'm conflicted because I think fracking is bad in general but the trucks are always so neat. And the Pete boat hauler is a nice catch too, not to mention the Beyond Coronado. Wish those MKII's had caught on more.

The Sodrel Mack is very cool. 8) It's amazing the shape this company keeps its trucks in. :)

The Forbes-Hewlitt and the Warren Gibson Cascadias are very nice. 8)
The Forbes-Hewlitt looks to have some type of custom fender over the rear axles, though I can't quite figure out exactly how it's set up.

Funny that you mention that because it caught my eye too.  It's the reflective stripe and bottom rail of the trailer on the next truck down.
