One of my favorite photo spots is the Illinois Toll Road service plazas - the ones that span the highway. 8-) Got to spend about 45 minutes last Tuesday at this one on I-90 just south of the Wisconsin border. Always some interesting trucks to see & constant action to boot.

I caught one of those Roehl's, early last year I think, hauling a tall, overlength steel beam, probably for a bridge.

I think I've taken pictures at this spot myself Charlie. :lol:  I was on I-90 at one of those service plazas, eating lunch and taking pictures in the afternoon sun.  It was a nice time, especially because truck traffic starts to thin out the further you get into Wisconsin.

Really enjoyed the photos, it's good to see they came out good even in the cloudy weather.

Hmm, looks like an excellent place for pictures!  :-D Nice catches, too, that Jade Pete is something out of the ordinary with the stacks behind the sleeper like that; also cool catch on the cattle pot Pete.  8-)

Roehl seems to have diversified quite a bit - not a bad idea in this economy. Thanks for the photo Paul.

Good shot of the Jade Transport. It's the first time i've seen a Pete 379 with the stacks behind the bunk like that. The cattle hauler is a sharp looking outfit also.

And what a good location that is.  Never photographed there, but its neat looking down on the interstate.

WW Trucking KW T800.

Just saw this truck the other day.  Not sure if its an O/O or company ride.  Based out of Darien, WI near the big Geneva Cold Storage / Birds Eye plant.  They have light green colored Columbia's.  Both daycab and sleepers.  Pull alot of liquid asphault tankers, along with end dumps and conveyor belt trailers.  See them hauling trash into the landfill in Janesville along with aggregate out by the nearby pits.

 I wasn't able to get a pic of the WW green Columbias with the end dumps although they seemed to be all over the place. Ran with one for quite a while last week on the PA Pike until he exited around Harrisburg - maybe i'll catch one yet back east.

Hey Jon_G, check out this Tidewater Transit Circa 2009!


Neat ROEHL operation here Charlie.  I don't know if I've ever seen a 9900 for this company, and I'm sure I've never seen them hauling a trailer (can hauling?) like this before. 


Prime Flatbeds are rare enough, even 387s more so.  Like that you got this one in 2009.


Never seen this company, but I like this one:
