Good luck on the part time gig Greg. :) Are you working at the Pennsauken barn? ???
Yes, it's the closest. It's not far from home or the school I work at.
Well that's good. :) Any chance of borrowing an old R or U model Mack & bringing it to Gerharts in October? ??? ;D :D

There is an awful lot of newer power there. I even think all the Fords are gone at this point. There is a U-model tanker, an R-model plow, and International S series for service though. They are all yellow. I have a couple photos of tractors but I haven't found a new way to share since Photobucket stopped working.

A lot of people seem to like SlickPic........I have an account but will continue to use Photobucket until my paid plan ($50/year) runs out. You might want to give it a test ride. ;D

I meant to thank you about turning me on to Pennsauken at the June show in Macungie but forgot. I'd never spent anytime around the area until I saw some of your posts & now stop off there whenever I'm in the area. The NEMF & ODFL barns are huge and there's always some interesting trucks to be found in the area warehouse district.

Hope things are good for you Greg, glad to see you back on here! As far as posting photos on the forum, I think Slickpic is great. Photobucket was IMO already bad before they screwed over all their customers. It constantly had issues and bugs, whereas I have had a great customer experience with Slickpic. The only time I ever had an uploading issue, I contacted a rep and they resolved it within minutes and were really professional. I do pay for my account, but they have free ones as well, though you will probably get an ad link in the photo unless you get a paid account.
I have started using Flickr as well, just as another place to post photos, and it's great to use, you get a terabyte of free space.

I like very much your photos taken in the yard. NEMF is one of my favorite fleet. Great variety of equipment with some old
soldiers in the bunch.

Still lookin' to shoot a red & gray FL M2 & Cascadia. Maybe I should drop by with coffee at the end of your night shift? ??? ;D

They're out there! I don't see a lot of the M2s in the old style but there are at least 3 2012 Cascadias at the terminal I work at. However, two have had their good replaced and it's a solid color. One's in my most recent photos!
