TFC - Lanita Transport - lineup
« on: February 27, 2010, 05:09:37 AM »
Here are my shots of the trucks that Lanita Transport out of Myerstown, PA, brought to Transport for Christ. I stopped by their yard the day before the show and looked around a bit; really cool people, IMO. And some pretty good looking trucks, too, I'd say.  :wink:

I happened to spot the Lanita convoy entering the lot, and got some pics as they were rolling in. If the angle had been a little different, the trucks a little closer together and if the background had been better this first one could have been a pretty cool picture. I'd have called it "The Dance of the Lanitas". :roll: :-D

W900Ls.




T800 and T600B.


Western Star.


Flattop 379.


Standup 379.


Here is the Lanita lineup. For some reason I apparently didn't get a really good lineup shot of all of them, but here's what I got, in any event.

W900Ls.

Thanks, guys!

Charlie, I believe at least all the KWs are company trucks, whether the Star and the Petes are I really don't know.  :|
