Miscellaneous road pics from my last excursion
« on: July 12, 2010, 11:01:14 AM »
I did this excursion along TCH in the St-Liboire & Ste-Helene area on June 22. I took so much time to edit those 550-600 pics.  I keep up to 300 after edition.  I will post a few in this thread this week.

Brookville Carriers like many of the big transportation companies from Atlantic Canada use a lot of owner-operators. It was not very noticeable when carriers had strict paint codes. But now it seem to be  a free for all. Those guys out East are very proud of their trucks and we see  lot of nice rigs.



Here is another 0/0, this one for Fastrax , a division of Day & Ross based in Hartland NB.  This one have kept a more traditional paint code.



I like taking pics of liquid carriers and lately I have seen quite a few newer from the USA.  This one, Tidewater Transit (TWT) is from Tidewater NC and is a first for me.



Transport Serbo is a livestock carrier out of Wickham near  Drummondville Qc. The fleet of about a dozen trucks is mostly International with quite a few ProStar. This Pete 386 seem to be one of  their latest acquisitions.  Serbo have always  nice looking trucks.



Always quite a few livestock carriers from Ontario and even from Western Canada . This T660 is from Thur Transport out of Elmira ON.



I had not seen a Kleysen Transport rig for quite some time now. I have always liked this fleet  and  I took quite a few pics of them  in the first half of the 2000.

Nice catch on the Tidewater Transit tanker. 8-) They're actually from Kinston NC & have been a Volvo fleet for years. Here's some info about them on their website.

The livestock haulers and the Brookville Pete are some sharp looking rigs.

Here is a few more:

Nice Pete lease to Com-Scott transportation , Pickering ON.



Another Pete lease to TerraNova Tr. out of Petitcodiac NB.  Up to 1-2 years, very few 0/0 with them. Lately we see qute a few  more.



A Pete T800W for the heavy hauling divison of Bellemare from Trois-Rivières.  Can be a former Tr. Maltais truck.  Maltais from Chambly Qc have been taken over by Bellamare last year..



A Transfreight/McManara Volvo VN 780.  Up to now I have always seen Peterbilt and Freightliner  with this carrier based in Ayr On.

I like the Terra Nova and the Bellemare. Been seeing a lot of Bellemare trucks around here the last 2 weeks hauling wind farm equipment.
