Can't believe it's been well over a month without a post but sometimes life gets in the way I guess. ;D A little minor surgery that took 2 weeks to recover from, 7 days away in NC for Thanksgiving, 2 trips tp Florida back to back and a couple of Christmas parties really got in the way. :D Now it's back to normal beginning with pics from a trip to Ft. Lauderdale FL I made from 2-4-19 to 12-6-19. As always I hope some enjoy.


An early start and a sunrise pic of a Barber Trucking FL Classic flatbed from Brookville PA at the Trailway Truck Stop on US 301 in Centreville MD.

Nice shots Charlie. Glad to see someone else shoot Carlyle for a change, I see those W9's so often I've lost all interest. The Ditech Cascadia is cool, I've caught a couple of those but they had Prostars pulling them. The Pepsi 579 is cool too, don't see too many Pepsi cabs with sleepers and the Mack Granite dump truck is just a solid beast.

Welcome back Charlie, glad to hear all things went well!

You always catch some very unique trucks on your trips, the D&D IH 8100 is cool, were so common but now not easy to find em, that is one clean sharp looking  Columbia for Rusty's Towing! Carlyle's is always a great catch!

Jim.

Another nice set Charlie, I'm surprised given how popular Little Ceasers is that shooting a rig is so hard. The Legacy Pete is a classic, and I love the Pete big bunk heavy hauler (think I shot that at the Doswell truck show in April).

That orange vnl is an upgrade to the livery; maybe not for the drivers though. Around here BlueLine used to run white Cascadias - with much bigger condo bunks! I'm not even sure if the Canadian operations are still running: the local d/c appears to have closed.

 Blue Line still is running their Canadian operations.....this Volvo VNL860 was taking a break at the southbound I-95 Hardeeville SC rest area on 12-10-19.

Man, that O'Donnell 359 is a really sharp looking rig, looks to be an earlier 359, judging by the windshield and the door handles. 8)
The R.D. Hall Pete is nice, I believe I've caught it before myself.
I'm always a fan of oddballs, and the Topkick definitely fits the bill, neat catch there.
Nice shots all around. ;)

I don't know if that is the same Blueline Charlie.
The one you showed is a carrier from Milton.
Fairly big too.
Little Caesars had a DC down in my district but now that Oso mentioned it - I haven't seen them for a wghile.

Little Caesars has been around a while but I don't know if I've ever seen anything else but Volvos in the fleet. :-\ Not a very popular pizza brand down my way. ;D


One of their trucks laid over at a motel in Secaucus NJ on 10-27-04.
