Another EGGR from Quebec put in an appearance the other morning.

The reefer was running.

I guess living near a busy Container Yard means a can hauler picture is almost always available.


CNTL was busy movong some containers on Saturday April 13 2019

Always like seeing the CNTL rigs, such a spiffy paint scheme. :)

Seatainer with a T800 daycab.
They are a large local fleet.

Seatainer and Gusgo are two similar companies and I believe are entirely comprised of O/Os. If you guys arenít aware, 427 is undergoing an extension which will bypass many of the intermodal terminals near Vaughan including Seatainer.

Hmm, also a CN truck going down to Southdown? I would be amazed to know if itís shunting cans to and from Musket, especially empties. Usually thatís what Musket does regularly, though itís possible their increase in activities between Montreal and New Jersey ports warrants for this type of cooperation with other fleets.

Nice snag. What do they do, drop empty 20s to load and pick up later bobtail and then go live load the 40s?

Ruffin, those b-train combinations are usually used to ferry containers to and from Montreal and Toronto. Sure, they have to drop the rear first, then shorten the lead chassis to be compatible for loading. Then unhook it and then put the 20í to the dock.

Rob, thatís Sun Express, one of the more iconic truck for that fleet. Also thatís a stunning photo of duo Muskets.

Zeprome- are they ever hauling both containers loaded at once?

I have seen Musket haul 2x20í loads before, but never a 3x20í with loads. Possibly because of the weight factor. It doesnít seem like there might be much spare cargo weight allowed on the road.

From what I observe - Multi containers other than 2 x 20 footers are empties.
I thought they would be shuttling them to the rail yards but Zeprome says they send some of those to Montreal.
Toronto is an inland port and 95% of the containers arrive by rail.


And, this week's can hauler is...a Volvo from Carmel. I think it must have been Bison before.

How much weight is allowed on the road for a heavy truck in areas where two and three containers are being hauled?
