6-9-09 Around WI & IL
« on: June 13, 2009, 03:33:34 PM »
Took this past Tuesday to do a little truck fanning around southeast WI & even ventured into north central IL a bit. Good area for lots of different companies as covered by Steve WI in a few of his recent posts. Hope some enjoy.  :-)

Very interesting serie Charlie.  Of all of those fleet, only Halvor Lines I have ever seen  and it is never more than once or twice  a year. This Notionwide Volvo have  strange front end  kind of protection.

Nice Midwest catches, Charlie! That Scholten cattle pot is too sharp, I love it!  8-) And the Kelle's Prostar is very sharp, too, I like them with those shiny bits.  :wink:

Nice series! I can't remember the last time I saw a Halvor T600.  All T660s now.  Nationwide doesn't look too different in 2012.

I stopped by Halvor's yard a couple of years ago, and even then there were few if any T600s there. :-\

On a random note, I notice there is an NTB Columbia in this set 8) They are a frequent visitor to my area, and I will say in 2012, their equipment has not changed. Still Columbias and Centuries from what I've seen.
