Hmmm...all the way to Montreal with empties?
Here's one I got this morning - missed the power but it was a gray Volvo to try and get the containers.

Difficult to assert. The 40’ and 20’ MAERSK container could both be empty or lightly loaded; even the Maersk 40’ chassis it’s front axle raised up. The alternative to taking the trains which frees up space for heavier loads. Also possible that both containers are very time-sensitive do boarding the train is not an option.

There is actually a shortage of empty 40' highcube in Montreal. That might be the reason empties are beeing carted to Montreal

That's an interesting list.
Certainly shows how busy Musket is.
Another Adams from one morning in February.

Cool catch on the triples, that's definitely something we don't have in my area. :o
The new Volvos for Musket look good, though this one looks like it's got a bit of a slobbering problem going on with the fuel tank.

Containers on trains shots.

I've been working to get my Slickpics albums into some shape - going back several years too.
Containers on the trains.

Sometimes a grab shot of a truck going past yields something unusual.

This guy was trudging up the street one day last week and I was able to get the shot.

Turns out the MSC container he was hauling was a 45 footer which is a rare size - a long container for ISO types.
Can't read the number so can't trace it to see where it came from.

Interesting Rob, you just never know right? I don't pay enough attention to containers so not sure how many 45's i have turned down, best start shooting and then see!

Jim.
