Once More Up To The Pass; Once More...
« on: June 15, 2013, 12:10:05 PM »
It's been a rainy June so I didn't get out to my Overpass until the 11th.

The first one that went past was this KW T800 hauling a load of scrap metal.


Next, a Canada Cartage F-Liner Columbia. These trucks are starting to look worn.


Anther KW T800 with a dump trailer - this one is for aggregates.


Here is a Pete 386 from Herve Lemieu from Quebec. He has a couple of coils on his deck and is pointed towards La Belle Province.


Another flatdeck hauler followed. I didn't get the carrier name of this sharp International 9900.


The KW T600 is from Harmac while the food grade tank trailer has a decal for LJW. This could be an interline move.


Here is another dump trailer; this time pulled by a white Prostar.


It was a good day for Kenworth sightings including this W900 from Premier Tank Lines.


And...here's ANOTHER KW, a W900 daycab. The dump trailer might be for grain.

(a Paccar shot; note the Pete from Laidlaw going the other way)

Caravan Logistics appear to be switching their fleet from primarily Volvo to Freightliner Cascadias.



More to follow

the CCS trucks are starting to look worn, because most are now O/O's. 10 or so years ago CCS had about 3 or 4 o/o's, now there are too many to count, most are new canadians, seems to be the way CCS is going to cut the costs. CCS has picked up some new contracts lately, good ones, and instead of internal job postings, the postings are for new O/O's! many changes over the years.

@ Rick - no tornados.
@ Yardman - The CCS Columbias have been in service for almost a decade haven't they?

So, continuing - the next was a Cascadia from J.C. Germain from Quebec with a tri-axle plus lift axle van.


Namaha is named for an Indian God from what I can tell. "Safer Web" says they only have 6 trucks; I thought they had more.


This is a long dump trailer but it does have 5 axles. Grain?, Scrap? Some other cargo? Aggregate trailers are shorter.


A straight truck from Burnac (fruit and veggie distributors) passed a steel haling Freightliner Condo.


Zavcor with a load of produce coming into Toronto from Stevensville.


This must be a former F.G. Lister tractor now hauling a flat deck.


Muskoka Transport Toronto-bound.


We'll finish our visit to the QEW with a couple of Zoom-Zoom shots.
C.A.T. Cascadia was passing a straight truck with a KW T800 dumper right on his tail!

Dump truck drivers are not noted for their Defensive Driving skills.

FedEx Ground with a set of pups was passing a scrap hauler from Tiger Trucking.


and....as we were walking back this auto parts hauler from TVM was getting on an entrance ramp to the highway. Hey Mike S - here's one of these in Mississauga Ontario.


I'm hoping for another decent weather day on the 18th, my best day for a LTAMO.

Rob.

Monday June 17 2013.

Leading off we caught a Cascadia from NFI. They are doing intermodal reefer work for Canada's Largest Grocer.
(psst...C.L.G. is Loblaws  ;))


Next up - Direct Equipment supplies construction job sites with this Volvo straight truck.


"B" Train tankers from Glen Tay with a Peterbilt 389 in charge.


A yellow Kenworth T800 dump truck was passing a Freightliner Century.


Here is a Kenworth T600 leased to LP SERVICES of Hamilton.

It was hauling a trailer with Lakeside Steel graphics.

There were three Western Stars from Carl Farrow Haulage from Caledon. I caught the first and third but the second one was running in a big clump of cars.

Next, an International from All Lanes Trucking (thanks LCH) with a miscellaneous load on the stepdeck trailer.


A Western Star pulled a "B" Train set of grain trailers .


Another steel hauler - A Peterbilt 579 from Herve Lemieux from Quebec with a J.R.Richard trailer. Lemieux took Richard over last year.


A deadhead flat deck with a Columbia on the point.


Things Go Better With Coke - Things go "greener" with Daisani according to the trailer graphics. Greenwash is alive and well.


Another steel hauler - a Western Star from COLE Integrated Systems based in Hamilton.

Thanks Rob. ;) I seem to recall reading that they were swallowed up by a bigger outfit but wasn't 100% sure.

Really great series--I always enjoy the different carrier names most never seen in the western US altho common in the east. The only  ones I recognize running here are  FX ground and  NFI.  My brother is not doing very well and I will be visiting him the end of the month. At the moment I will probably have a free day and will occupy myself trying to get some pics on I 81 which is a well traveled route for Canadian carriers. Hoping for some good weather.  We could use some of the rain here. Total rainfall in the LA area for the past year is less than 6 inches.

 :) ;) @ Charlie, Long before Glenn Tay Transportation was Swallowed up by Contrans...They started out as the sole Transporter of Talc Powder from a Huge Operating Plant in Glenn Tay Township on the Westside of Perth,On...Talc Powder of course is used in the production of various goods and so on.....

This Kenworth W900 is leased to steelhauler ICI which is one of the successor companies to ICL Steel Division from the 70's and 80's. A sharp looking unit but IMHO needs "something" . It has too much white and needs stripes or colours for some contrast.


The last three appear to be from a carrier named IRON HORSE which is based in the eastern Ontario town of Cardinal. They haul steel billets from Quebec steel mills to Hamilton where they are rolled. They haul coil steel back to Quebec. Iron Horse is one of several carriers on this run.

 ;D ;D ;D Steel Haulers ;D ;D ;D!!
Great shots Rob!! Can't wait to get out and see some of the new equipment the steel haulers have this year.
That International 9400 with the miscellaneous load on the stepdeck trailer is from All Lanes Trucking.
I think my favourite from the last set is the LP Services Kenworth T600. Its always been a sick looking combo especially when you see it in person, sounds great too :D!!
It's Appearance might be Half yours but it's Reliability might be Twice yours!!
