This is the first time I ever won!

I’m thinking two-axle tractors for this month’s theme.

Okay... how about intermodal? Sea containers, rail containers, intermodal trailer pigs, etc.? You can find those anywhere!

Thanks Greg - it's best to have a broad topic which serves to increase the number of entries.
BTW - your Pepsi tractor is a tandem altho the trailers are single axle pups.
Is that getting more common?
To my eyes those trailers should be B Trains but obviously that isn't required in PA. Do they break the sets and use the pups for store deliveries?
Congrats on the winning picture

Congratulations Greg, Pepsi is my favorite drink, and I've actually been to the store in New Bern, NC where it was first created and had a drink. ;D

Thanks Rob. I have photos of two-axle tractors from all over the industry. I didn't realize they weren't as common up in Canada.

This is one of few photos I have of Pepsi doubles. Most tandem tractors pull vans between distribution centers and the single-axles deliver in the city. I've started to see a handful of tandems pulling tankers too. I'm assuming they do it as you said but I don't have as much know-how of beverage operations.
