One of the two W&S Cascadias, June 2014:



Later that year the first new short nose super lightweight Cascadias arrived at the yard in Claresholm.
Instead of 4, these trucks can load 5 of the biggest tyres (13'-4'') in the world:

Ready to leave in the morning, 30 minutes after sunset, for Ringgold, GA.
There a pilot car is waiting to cross TN and KY, day 1 ends at Paducah, KY or Ina, IL (depending on how much daylight there is left):

Very interesting reportage on the activities of Watt & Stewart.  I have ever seen their trucks hauling big tires on the Quebec North Shore  . Last Friday,  on my way back from Montreal, I made a detour by Lacolle to  do some truck spotting on trucks coming  back from the USA and I  caught  Cascadia # 052.   Welcome to the forum  and I can't not wait for more pics.
