Let me know if it can extend to 45' or shorten to 20'.

I see coiled air lines hanging under the lead, a regular B train lead wouldn't have that, and the pup's 5th wheel seems a long way back from the centre of the tridem.

The more I stare the odder it looks.
It's either extendable or the wheels slide, which I haven't seen before.

Based on the Max Atlas website, the chassis equipment only allows the fifth wheel to be extended.

The coiled air lines are a common feature among all extendable chassis. Ones that arenít are fixed accordingly to the frame.

Itís an extendable, the dolly frame is fixed. The interesting thing is that itís air suspension, which is an uncommon feature for container chassises.

Should we be expecting quadrupled 20s soon???  ::) I would really want to see that!

Really great B Train. The Capital Intermodal 20 is also rare -- the small logo in the corner has never been spotted on a dry van! Only large, centered logo as below

Those ZIM reefers have integrated GPS tracking devices so it can monitor the temperature, fuel and whereabouts. Paul's been getting some decent equipments. Very nice to see some old fleets upgrading.

The Challenger looks nice with the colorful decals, always nice to see a truck with a little pop of color. :)

It's a 379, the 359 has external hoses for the air cleaners whereas the 379 cleaners fit flush with no external hoses. ;)
Example: a 359.

Notice the big black pipes in front of the air cleaner.

That Volvo is one of the newest additions to Musket's fleet. Looks like it only runs between Toronto and Montreal as I don't see it on local roads.

Yes; they have a few. The picture I wish I could have taken was one of the new Volvos with 3 or 4 stacked new container chassis heading to the Royal Windsor Drive yard.

Moving along - this is kind of an interesting container.
