I'd not known about this model either, of course I'm not knowledgeable about White or Sterling.

One of the rarest of the rare, Jimmy, only a handful of the particular model you're looking at are still in existence. There was also one other version where the snubnose was a little longer that, to my knowledge, none exist anymore. Wonderful looking trucks.

I've only read about that model White somewhere, great catch for sure! Looks like there are a lot more unique and interesting units in that barn, where is that Jimmy?

T-series... TG's, TE's, TF's, etc...

Here's a couple photos of the rarer "longnose" version:

Jimmy,
  I think that might be a sleeper in the lead trailer. Glad you enjoyed the photo.

Thanks guys. Gary, daycab truck with a sleeper in the nose of the bunk. It certainly looks that way. Next time I'm down that way I'll check for the builders plate.
