Nice set Jim. That Cargostar is really neat, haven't seen anything like that before, especially not still working in 2019 lol. That W900B with the HIAB is a tough looking rig too.

The old IH Cargostar sure is cool, hard to believe it's still working. :o
The W900B with the knuckleboom and the 9900 are cool too, nice catches! 8)

An International Cargostar still at work in Vancouver?
Obviously they don't throw much salt on the streets there in winter!
From the looks of that International 9900 they must throw lots of salt in the mountains.
I would agree on the former Fortin look on the old Century too.
It looks like you spent an hour enjoying a taste of early spring.

yeah, the Cargostar is a survivor, there are a few I have seen around so maybe I can catch another one someday!

Spring is here Rob, well, then we had a dusting of snow last night, 8C today so it's all gone again,hopefully that is it! Very odd winter for here!

Continuing from that day is a Volvo from Syco with a 1/2 B--train making the rounds

then a lumber laden, (look more like roof trusses of joists maybe) Peterbilt heads East something came too close to the exhaust stack on the right

an IH Durastar modular toter yanking an office structure behind

Mack MR concrete pumper in 2 tone green

unknown gorgeous Peterbilt 379, has a look familiar to an Ontario carrier, not sure


I have more coming but whatever is going on, need a new PC maybe, Photobucket not cooperating, too frustrating to add more right now.......later!

I know how the guy with the 379 with the messed up stack feels, our 379 had tall stacks and constantly hit tree branches and such. We ended up shortening them a few years ago.
The Durastar and the Mack MR are really cool, looks like the MR may have a black trash bag stuck on the grill. ::)
The unknown 379 is really sharp, an unusual paint job, but looks great. 8)

Good eye on the trash bag over the grille, must be what it is, certainly wouldn't need a winter front around here and on a local truck.

I have to agree with you about that 379 being gorgeous.It looks to have a B.C. plate on it.

It does have a BC plate on it, i guess I was thinking of these trucks from the Clifford show in Ontario maybe?


There were a few at the Notre Dame de Nord show too but Ontario plated

here are a few more from last week, all in Surrey at HWY 10 @ 152nd Street, a WB M2 Freightiner straight truck from Canadian Springs

EB M2 from Purolater

Mack Vision/Pinnacle from Van-Kam

Ryder supplies an IH 8600 to this little glass hauling trailer from PFG

unknown Peterbilt 388 367 thanks Tim-with a transfer dump rounds the corner

City of Surrey has a few Volvo VHD dump trucks in the fleet

no one was getting gas when I shot CF SB on 152 Street

Clean Harbours Peterbilt 379 roll off bin

later that day I stopped to grab a coffee, moved to the west side of 152nd Street to capture these, B&B Contracting has a KW T800 fuel tanker to supply it's on site equipment with fuel

Sunrise Poultry with a KW T800 going to fetch a load of cluckers that will soon cluck no more

this Coronado Mk l sure is livin a hard life

This one is a 367, not 388.
 The tell:  Grille is smaller, no visible fasteners on the grille.  Hood on 367 has no panel seam or visible panel fasteners.

367


For reference,  a  388(technically a 389 as the 388 model merged into the 389)

A comparison of grilles:  388 on left, 367 on right.


367 is cleaner looking, smooth yet crisp, no fasteners all over the crown to "look traditional", cluttering up the surface.  The 389 headlamps look better on the 367 as they tuck back more, reminiscent of 351.

Thanks Tim, I thought a 367 was a set back axle style, guess why I called it a 388? I will correct that shortly!

The 2 Pete dump trucks are very sharp, particularly the 367 transfer dump, that's a very cool rig there. 8)
The Ryder glass hauler is an interesting catch, wonder how often they break some.
The Super Save M2 is really clean, had to have just been washed. Nice to see a clean garbage truck, nice catch!

Jim,
367 has SBFA too!   And a tall hood option.

tall hood on the right. "Vocational Hood" or "Heavy Haul" - names used by Pb.

Thanks Wreckerman, not sure how many Super Save M2's there are in the fleet, every time I see one they are that clean, amazing really!

Here are a few from Saturday, the 2nd weekend in March, we headed up to the mountains to watch the grand kids ski......early morning, the frost was in the air, WB HWY #1 into Coquitlam and on to Vancouver town across the Pt Mann Bridge

truck traffic is not plentiful on a Saturday morning but Air Liquide was making his way thru Vancouver

across the 2nd Narrows into North Vancouver.........wonder if Neil Young got the idea from the song "Sugar Mountain" from a view such as this

caught a few trucks beyond that point but nothing spectacular so we move onto Sunday, in Langley, a KW W900 sits in the centre of the road while doing business

last week they were shooting some TV series just around the corner from where I work so I caught this pair on site

these were from Eighty-One transport

last week sometime this fine little Freightliner FLD112 stopped to check in, nabbed him while I could

from Sunday, a car carrier comes into town WB HWY #10 after a sloppy trip thru the mountains

and another Sunrise Poultry, this time a Cascadia heads out EB HWY #10 to fetch some chickens


Jim.
