I thought....I had a match to Gerard's picture from a truckstop in La Belle Province


A Peterbilt from L Hansens.

On closer examination the unit numbers are different and the truck I shot has a decal on the bunk that the driver is using electronic logs.

It might be a match - replacement for

the orange Sterling since the Pete was parked where I found the Sterling in December and L Hansen is the carrier in both instances.

Here is another owner-operator car hauler.
This Freightliner pulled into the Auto Mall behind where I was eating supper and watching the trucks but was there for only a few minutes.

I saw this Pete heading to the ESSO cardlock fuel station on Saturday evening.

Didn't get the carrier name.

I spotted this Sterling daycab from United Road Services parked on the side of the street near a Chevy dealer.


The driver was pulling the ramps down off the trailer in preparation of unloading something.

Cool shot Rob; I didn't think you could cross that port in a truck?

Two of the four bridges over the Niagara are Commercial Jim.
The Queenston -Lewiston, considered the Port of Niagara Falls, and the Peace Bridge at Fort Erie to Buffalo are the Commercial.
The Rainbow Bridge is strictly for passengers, buses can use it too.
The old Whirlpool Bridge is now restricted to NEXUS card holders only.
The only railway bridge that sees commercial traffic is the INTERNATIONAL BRIDGE between Fort Erie and Buffalo.
AMTRAK-VIA uses the Whirlpool upper level.

Thanks Rob; I thought didn't think Queenston Lewiston was considered Niagara Falls. Is that the one at the end of the 405?? Really stretching my memory here!! Fort Erie/Buffalo is quite a ways down the road yet, correct? I have crossed both of those before and Rainbow I did in a 4 wheeler.

Jim,

This morning on the Queen Elizabeth Way there were two Cassens Sterlings traveling together but the loads on both were mixed.
There were Dodge Ram trucks on the upper deck and Chevy Cruzes on the lower, on both trucks. Times certainly have changed in the Car Haul business. Back In The Day manufacturers wouldn't allow something like that.

(no picture; the OPP are on a "Distracted Driving Blitz" this week. Any use of hand held devices will draw the attention of The Law and I'm sure cameras are a "Hand Held Device".

Seen one day recently unloading at a storage lot.




Jack Cooper Transport has the ramps down but I didn't catch the carrier name of the other.
