Good find when I was there 4 years ago looked like there was a Hayes or Pacific in the back.  Was a weekend so I could not get in to yard.  In the 70's there were lots of heavy duty coal haulers there as they hauled from Tent mountain to Blairmore  remember seeing Auto Cars, Hayes and Pacific trucks on the road highway 3.

He did mention having a Pacific at one time. I'll be documenting a restored Autocar coal hauler from the Pass very soon.

In fall of 1977 Roy and I went to Blairmore and I dropped his P-10 Pacific off as Mario bought it for the tent Mt Coal haul. If I remember correct he also had a Hayes and 1 other truck which I did not see but thought it could be a Auto Car. Mario was a mechanic at the GM garage there and was a nice guy is all I remember.
