That IH HX is pretty sharp for sure, great shot of it too with the dust it is kicking up, great action captured! That SGT tanker is quite unique too.

Another interesting "modern day" fire truck, I know Winton  '90 isn't exactly new anymore but a canopy cab on a conventional is something we don't see here much, that seemed to have vanished with the old coe trucks.

Truck Pictures / Re: Life on the Merida-Cancun Toll Highway

Nice series, the tankers look cool!

I seen a few lower top Columbia trucks as car carriers (with head rack) but don't think they were that flat! Interesting trailer it is pulling, light weight product? What do they haul in that?

Jim.

It was a car hauler, but I couldn't see what it was hauling. High end cars maybe?

The Columbia is interesting.
The trailer has the look of a curtainside car hauler, so maybe the truck started life as a car hauler and eventually had the over the cab part removed.
Anyway, nice catch. 8)

That'd be my guess, or they decided not to add a head rack last minute. There was an M2 112 in front, with a similar trailer and no head rack, didn't look close enough to see if the roof was chopped or not

Interesting new series since I've last visited this thread

Thanks, added a few. We'll see if I see anything this week.

Thanks!
I'll definitely be experimenting with the drone, hopefully I'll find some neat photo ops. :)

Anyway, here's a batch of some older randoms.

First, an unknown Kenworth W900L.


An interesting looking KW T800 for STG Transport from Wilmington, North Carolina.


A sharp Mack Pinnacle for R.L. Causey from Murrells Inlet, South Carolina.


An ex-military dump truck at a construction site.


A very sharp International HX520.


A somewhat rough Volvo VNL for the "Future Truckers of America Driving School" from Asheboro, North Carolina.


A couple Freightliner Classics.




A nice older Volvo VNL for United Van Lines' agent the Kloke Group.

I never stopped in for a meal but have always stopped in for photo ops when coming or going from MD or places south. The last 2 times I just rode through the lot....no trucks around or just 1 or 2 crappy O/Os. :( As for the 301 road work....what a joke. :D The dirt got piled so high you'd never know there was a truck stop off the exit......no signage either.

Thanks for a great poem Suzanne. That is one nice old General and I wouldn't mind having it to restore to it's former glory.

TRUCK STOPS, DINERS, FUEL STOPS / Trailways Truck Stop
« Last post by navypoppop on Yesterday at 08:20:16 AM »
The Trailways Truck Stop in Centersville, Md on Hwy. 301 and Cty. 304 used to be a great local place to park for free, eat a good meal and have a safe place before heading north to Del. or south towards Washington. After the state of Md. redid the exit ramps and mid-Easterners took it over it has become another rat's nest owned by foreigners that have no respect for the industry they are serving. I for one will never set foot in there again. I hope they have to close for lack of business.
