I saw one go by last night in the dark along the QEW.
It was a Canpar Btrain heading for their terminal in Etobicoke. The lead trailer was painted for Select complete with Transforce swoosh.
Select has disappeared as separate division hasn't it?
How many B Trains did they run?

I to have seen those Select trains but can't tell how many there are/were. I was thinking they may eventually merge the 2 if they haven't already...
As for the Canpar rigs (Servicing the Etobicoke terminal) they use to be purely Volvo daycabs but have since seen them testing out Prostars and Cascadias :o.

From its Montréal hub Canpar uses frequently Prostar tractors operated by the Trans4 Dedicated division to pull their trailers.

About Select it was already integrated into Kingsway. So probably that Canpar inherited of their pup trailers better suitable
to the Canpar operations than the ones of Kingsway.

Vitran in Transforce paint. Clement Cartage doing the trucking. It might be on the way to their terminal from the CP Expressway Iron Highway terminal coming from Montreal.


Do any Quebec "Hanksters" see the Montreal "Expressway" terminal?
It's at the CP St Luc yard accessed from Decarie Blvd.

Last Sunday, while standing beside Dixie Road in Mississauga, I saw a couple of rather obscure Transforce divisions.
I guess Clarke can't really be described as obscure; it operates coast to coast in Canada and is a big user of domestic containers on the railways.
This container wears the Transfoce logo


When DHL closed it's domestic operations in North America and retreated to it's International Parcel roots, Transforce bought the Canadian operation. They had the Loomis Courier name in their stable of corporations and applied it to the DHL Canada operation.
This Loomis truck went past and it's trailer was distinctly ex-DHL and for airfreight. The side doors accommodate the "igloo" airfreight containers on rollers.

The Loomis unit is very interesting as well as the Clark container.

Just to let you know, MTMX and P&W are the same company but most likely with different operations.

This is just like Challenger and its cousin Elgin.

Here's one that is a little on the rare side....never seen one like it before.
MTMX hauling a dry van trailer from their yard in Oakville.


I have seen van haulers from Trans4 Logistics hauling out of that yard.
This is the first MTMX with a van.
