And, we'll finish this first LTMOP for 2017.

Normandin most often seen up on the 401 is on the QEW - probably headed to the 401 to go further east.


A T680 from Challenger enters the Toronto bound QEW while a T600 from Skylark Logistics cruises past.


WJ Deans of Delson QC and Stoney Creek ON steel hauler.


The TRUCK OF THE DAY and a Video Star too ( I think)....
This Peterbilt livestock hauler from Vernla Livestock rolled past. A nice Pete certainly but when doing the editing and research I found it to be from Vernla of Wallenstein ON. It stars in a video too.

There is another Pete following behind it.

And, I tried to shoot it too but only got the BTrain grain trailers.


Another Pete, a 386, with a B Train - not sure of the carrier name though.

 

Then, a Western Star from O Puga Ent from Niagara Falls Ont.


Finally a Mack from ACS of Oakville headed east.



Then, while walking back I turned and saw this flat deck hauler

and a Wilson's Truck Lines Columbia exited from the highway and turned north.


And, that's all.
The weather was more like late April than late February.
We will try and return at least once in March.

Rob.

I finally, with 2 days to spare, went there in March.
March has been a nasty month in Mississauga. That is not unusual.
So, once again, Edit and Photobucket and then post the pictures.

Let's get the March update started while it's still March....

Alexandria Wood Moulding (from Mr Tyzo country) of Alexandria ON.


Cooney Transport - based in Belleville with several other terminals around Ontario - T680 with a load of steel grid or mesh.


Olympic Wholesale of Ajax ON (east of Toronto) "suupliers to the bakery trade since 1972" with an unknown Volvo following.


Sharp but unknown Peterbilt.


T600 from Traffix of Milton with a trailer with L&M markings. They were a long time produce hauler from Etobicoke who are no longer in business to the best of my knowledge.


Another colourful tractor with a CN domestic container (Ruffuin 51 - heated CN can)


An older Freightliner leased on to Laidlaw Van division.


A pair of Warren Gibson Transport - Alliston ON - T680's. Possible Honda auto parts ion the roll-tite trailers.


A Freightliner from Convoy Supply probably from their Stoney Creek branch with a load of building materials.


and we close the first set with a Volvo from GT Group, container haulers from Montreal and Toronto.

Damn Rob this is a great spot, great selection of rigs and a nice background. Love that Vernla Livestock Pete, but the pair of T680's for Warren Gibson Transport are neat as well. And I'm a sucker for a 53' can even though the cab is a little beat up, I just wish I'd start seeing them more down here.

So, let's continue with Wednesday MArch 29 2017.
We left off with a GT Group Volvo.
It was followed by a Wiebe Transport Pete 386 daycab from JJG's hometown of St. Thomas Ont.


Then another Steelhauler that I hope LocalCoilHauler can identify.


I'm not sure who runs this Prostar either. I like the looks of it though.


One of the many truck-pup dump comboes always seen along here during the week.


Bruce R Smith has a lot of brokers in older trucks now.


THis Volvo seems to be from Transport Inter-Fast of Longuille Quebec.


Steelhauler, with a load of plate steel,from Daneca -Montreal .

Don't flat-bedders use chains to hold the loads down anymore? Those look pretty big and heavy to be held on the trailer by staps.

I'm not sure who runs this Pete. My buddy Wayne would call it a "Hot Rod" .


Ippolito from Burlington is common along here but I like their fleet.




There were several white Volvos and Freightliners that I didn't bother with. Maybe I've had my fill of them while shooting the weekend action on The 401. I let the first XTL go past without a picture but decided to record the second.



We're not done yet either.

The teal Prostar is a sharp rig!
The red Pete looks odd with no stacks, but different strokes for different folks.

Yes Rob, hometown it was indeed, but Weibe was not around when I lived there. When I went back, they had a yard where corn used to grow!!Nice update, lots of really cool rigs here!

I wonder if Weibe was a Broker for another carrier who went out on his or their own.

And we continue with the March 29 2017 action-

NOW, what can better a better, a more cool, more evocative name for a carrier...than ARCHER? 8) 8)
I mean, I ask you.... ::) Look at the trailer -it's ARCHER'S.... ;D



Priority Logistics is based in Kansas City and they have a Toronto branch in Mississauga - at Interport apparently. Note to Ruffin51 - another heated container.


When did they cease production of Sterling trucks? This green dumper must be getting fairly old.


Here is a Peterbilt (587?) with a walking floor "dump" trailer. Maybe hauling asphalt to a paving job.


An older Freightliner from a "Brampton Boyz" carrier - Hi Star Group.


The obligatory "Zoom" scene at this spot - we are at the top of a small grade and the slower trucks often get passed here.
 

CA Transport from Quebec in a newer Western Star.


Donnelly Farms from HArtland NB (same as much larger carrier Day & Ross) bringing fruits/veggies into Toronto.


Two Quebec Steel haulers finish this group of ten. The first is Transport R.D.R. from Barrute. It's hauling a Btrain of steel wire mesh held down with straps. Now, I have been watching a "YOUTUBE Trucker" called Supertrucker Dan, a flat deck owner operator leased to Mercer. He hauled a load of this tyype of steel recently and wrecked 12 straps from all the small edges on this stuff. Why don't they use chains to hold the steel down? Chains won't get ripped. Of course, the RDR driver might be more familiar with this cargo and know how to load it properly.


The last picture is another Prostar hauling steel - this time from Transforce carrier Durocher from Ste-Felix-Du-Kingsey.
Another load of plate steel.


And are a few more to edit from March 29 so stay tuned.

The last Sterling produced was in March of 2009 I think.

There is little info about Weibe, no complete web site, they are just looking for "fast" drivers.........?
