Gravel Trucks From Canada Trip

These pictures are the ones from my dad's camera... I'll upload the pictures from my camera later. Some pictures from his camera were taken by me if it was the camera I was holding at the time, some were taken by him because he doesn't like using my camera.

Thanks Ray, I think if you liked that set... you'll love this set. 8-)

Well, here's some from MY camera... we camped out just east of Banff one night near an overpass on the Trans-Canada Highway. After breakfast I went up and took pictures while my parents got the camper ready for the road. I think the intersection was near a gravel pit or something. :-D
Here's a video and picture of a SWEET 379 reversed B-train.


Just about my favorite picture from the trip... I also LOVE this configuration, never see it around my area though.

Transfer dumps.


Dumps with pups.



Straight dumpers.



Another one of those configurations I like. Is there a name for this type of set-up?

B-trains.



Belly dump.

B-trains hauling what I'm assuming is concrete powder, please correct me if I'm wrong.




Not sure this is gravel, I suppose it's possible it's something agricultural.

Class...you either have it, or you don't.

That 359 was a REALLY cool truck, it was pulling doubles in a ten-axle train like I see in my area... I just messed up the picture.
It was taken along I-15 somewhere north of Butte, Montana.

A Granite in Fanny Bay.

Some from a Kenworth dealer near I-5 just north of Seattle.

Cool pics! You caught a lot of nice looking Kenworths. It's hard to choose what my favorites are, but I really like that photo of the teal W900B in your second set of photos. I also like that T800H, I don't see too many of those, as well as that older C500 for the same reason.

I love this pic as well! Very, very sweet looking truck pulling a very interesting setup, and some cool scenery to boot! The rest of the pics are great, too, of course, but this one really sticks out, IMO!  8-)

Thanks a lot, but to tell ya the truth, I dislike that picture... LOVED the truck though. I took that picture too early, shoulda waited 'til he was further down the cloverleaf. I put my caption ABOVE the picture... this is the way I meant that to turn out. I liked THIS picture because of the background and the angle and position of the truck. I found the set-up very interesting too. :wink:

The red Pete in the last picture in your post is pulling a set of grain hopper bottoms.

Yeah, I know, I did some "interesting" cut-and-paste there, I guess, hehe. I was actually more interested in the setup of the one I quoted there, as the KW setup looked a bit more "Norwegian", never seen a gravel train quite like the one pulled by that flattop Pete before...  :-) And I liked the composition of the picture and the background and everything... :)

I meant peterbilttrucker's original post, the caption said he wasn't sure if it was gravel, but he thought it was agricultural. Sorry for any confusion.

I understood you... thanks for pointing that out, I guess I was right when I said it might be agricultural.
