I like the Sperry Sprinter. I haven't seen those either -
F series Fords usually.
I saw you got some snow down that way - we haven't had that much yet this winter.
Is that a dedicated train for Tropicana?

Thanks guys :).

Rob/Jim I think I know the Ford you're talking about, Ford F-6 or 7 series chassis with the small command box mounted on the back? Seems that's the most common rig Sperry has. I see this one parked semi-often at this hotel in Alexandria.

This was the 2nd snow we've had, first decent one though. That train used to be solely dedicated for Tropicana carrying empties back south to FL and fully loaded north to Jersey, but now since sales have slowed they combine it with an intermodal that runs up to the ports in NJ.

Anyways here's a few more from today and last week:

Cruised around Sterling last week, moving season appears totally dead up there but construction season is always going as long as the weather cooperates. FL M2-106 for United Rentals:


See these guys running from the quarry to Titan Concrete all the time in Sterling, they have a nice fleet of VHD 300's:


Starting to notice these guys more, seen them on I-95, on I-81, and now delivering to a local warehouse down in the mover's alley. All appear to be bright neon T800's painted in various colors. Company's called Old Pylon Trucking out of Edinburg, TX:


Caught this VHD 300 for Moore Transport up in Alexandria today:


I won't keep doing this but caught another snowbird today, this time it's the Auto Train making its' daily run from Lorton to Sanford, FL:

The Old Pylon T800 is cool, and the Auto Train is a nice catch. 8)
