So; my computer died and Photobucket doesn't display 3rd party pictures anymore.
But;
for much of last spring and summer I was still shooting pictures

So - courtesy of slickpic let's show some action shots.

Canuck is a small cartage company. This Columbia is hauling a trailer marked for Sobeys which is a grocery chain.

The Main Street Highway 401 photos are welcome  :D :D :D

About the Transforce Pete I would guess for Golden International. I'm pretty sure.

Thank you Rene for both comments.
I had wondered if it was Golden.

Can-Truck (2009) uses a similar logo design to the Can Truck that shut down in 2010.
The old Can truck was based in Oshawa but still maintained a terminal in Belleville that would have been rooted in Canada Transport.
The new Can Truck is based in Brampton.


Another "Can" name is of this car hauler CanUsa. It looks like a mixed load from different manufacturers.


Highlight Motor Freight is a colourful fleet in this age of so many white trucks.

Glad to see you returning to action Rob. ;D I missed this series as well as the produce warehouse pics.

One more update for tonight.

Here are the UNKNOWNS
(if I made notes about the sightings I mislaid or tossed them.)






Greatline Logistics and if my research is correct this is it! The entire fleet.

I don't know what I'm going to do about the Produce Warehouse.
I'll see what, if anything, I can recover from Photobucket.

Great to see more stuff from your spot Rob! Interesting find on the CanUSA. They used to be a dry freight carrier, so not sure if this auto hauler is related or if they just share the name. Not sure what happened to the original group.

Returning to May 2017; after shooting the westbounds I went after some railway action and got two on CN. Then, since it was a beautiful day I shifted position again and set up for some 401 eastbounds at the bottom of Campbellville Hill.

Started with another Highlight - heading to Toronto.


Then, Saputo Cheese but an unknown carrier. Saputo, based in Montreal,  is one of Canada's biggest cheese manufacturers and they supply lots of pizza cheese.


KFL - King Freight Lines is based in Nova Scotia but many of their units lay over in Mississauga on weekends.

I didn't stay in Milton too long. It's not too interesting since the Fifth Wheel closed.
Laidlaw  T800 with a Btrain set of bulkers went past next.


And, another Contrans bulk hauler - Wilburn Archer from Norwood ON in an International.


And finally just before I left I shot a blue KW T600 that looks like it was subcontracting for Wilson's Trucklines. I think it has a Food Basics decal on the roll up door.


and, that's all for that batch of pictures.
However, I was still shooting lots in June so I will be posting them soon.
