Another shortly after noon Sunday shot - April 3 2016.



Lister seems to be simplifying their paint scheme but in blue not white.
A Cascadia is at one dock while a F.G.Lister Western Star backs into another. Some of their straight trucks seem to be waiting their turns too.

(This series doesn't get much anymore. Yes, it has been over 120 days but NO I am not considering a new topic. )
Monday August 1 2016

The first Monday in August is a Public Holiday but there are no holidays in the produce business.
(Civic Holiday isn't a Retail Holiday anymore so my wife had to work)
The F.G. Lister Warehouse had activity - a W900 daycab and a Freightliner Cascadia.

Another of my infrequent visits past the F.G. Lister warehouse.
There was a Cascadia backed into the doors and a couple of straight trucks nearby.
Unfortunately, I had to rush the shot since someone was behind me.


For record purposes, if nothing else.

Catching up here....Sunday December 4 2016 although late, after 12PM

View of the dock area - 4 doors


This F.G. Lister Western Star was backing to a door. They have simplified their paint scheme.

May 21 2017.

(This is the first post of 2017 from the Produce Warehouse?)

We went past at 8 AM instead of 10 or noon. There were two Freightliners at the dock.
The Alpha tractor has unhooked from the trailer. Is this for safety? Maybe to prevent the truck from leaving while there are still workers in the trailer.

You might be right Rob, some do it for that while maybe the driver opted to unhook to get a bite to eat or have a non-disturbed sleep. Once un-hooked, they would likely not allow him to hook up till the green dock light is on.

More than likely correct Jim. Sleep while the lumper takes all day.
