The PacLease Pete is sharp, nice shot Rob. And it's nice to see some CNTL tractors, I've always a had a thing for their colors.

The Spartek Cascadia is nice, and I'll second Partsman on the CNTL rigs, that paint scheme looks sharp. 8)

Ruffin, Iím not sure myself. All I know is that I never hauled doubles or even triples before and much of the cargo weight is pertaining only to the maximum net weight of a container. For instance, most 40í HCs have roughly around 63,000lbs of payload allowed. 20ís are roughly the same though itís definitely a killer even with Tri-axle chassises. You can fit more in but terminals will reject if itís over the max gross weight. Their stackers/crane can approximate the weight upon lifting.

I saw roughly I think 11 Musket trucks including the unusual non-grey Volvoís ferrying containers to Montreal last weekend. They didnít seem to bring anything back this time.

Itís always very nice to see varieties of trucks especially since Musket seems to have acquired some relatively new and different trucks. Not sure if they are O/O but goes to say the uniform shades of grey are starting to be more colourful now.  8)

Here is a Musket MSC "almost LCV" heading to their terminal or CY.

Blast from the Past - Grand Valley Cartage KW Aerodyne.
Not sure what happened to this truck but I haven't seen it for a number of years.

I last recall seeing it in 2011 or 2012.

So many can hauler fleets are scruffy - these guys do stand out.

Nice Bright Summer Morning pictures.

Rexway Transport - An old Columbia still in Elke paint.

"Only" a tandem chassis as well. Most seem to be triaxle now.

So; it's been about a month since we last updated the CHOT files.

Carmel Volvo with a 20 foot dryvan leased can.


I shot this on the QEW from the Tim Hortons but the summer shrubbery makes for a cluttered shot.
This is a CP domestic reefer can. The tractor is either leased to or arranged by Canada Drayage
https://www.cpr.ca/en/media/cp-introduces-temppro-for-shipping-perishable-products

The two Canadian railways are fighting for market share. CN took over the TransX trucking operation to increase it's refrigerated business.


Here's a picture that I screwed up. The retailer Canadian Tire has a small private fleet operation of Volvo daycabs for the Toronto region. It is the used container with the CDAU markings I should have focused on.
 

Then, same day, I didn't get a good shot of this Spartek Logistics tractor as it went past.


Pauls from Mississauga is a large drayage carrier. This Freightliner daycab had dropped a container at one of the yards and heading back for more.

August 2019 action....

Sunday the third; just up the street from Musket's Container Yard.....
One Volvo leaves with a Cronos reefer can

while another goes for it's load.


The following Friday evening this Volvo came up the street after leaving off it's container.

while the next (Saturday) afternoon a Kenworth W900 owner operator for Musket went to the yard.


We saw this CNTL Volvo headed west on Highway 401.


Back to Southdown Road
Adams Cargo International with a container for drayage. They've been hauling containers locally since the 1970's.


Here is Canada Cartage with a regular Canadian Tire domestic container at the store.


Most of the Musket tractors are gray Volvo sleepers but this white daycab shuttles the containers between their three local yards.

It wears their older logo on the door.

A Musket driver stops for a coffee on his way out of town.


And this update ends with a beat up old International that I thought was an ex- BR Smith tractor.

The O/O W900 for Musket is sharp, and the CNTL Volvo is typically snazzy. 8)
For some reason, the old beat up IH looks cool, too.

I can't believe Canadian Tire still have those old Navieras de Puerto Rico 53' container... When I worked at Canadian Tire's eastern Canada dc, they already had them and they were  beat up...

Rob does Canadian Tire run any 60' cans in Ontario yet? Hoping I'll catch one up there. Looking forward to seeing those CN cans too, I've only caught one down here so far. Nice find on the CP reefer can too.
