I also have at least one other photo of a truck from this fleet, possibly a Dia REO conv. I am away from home until the end of May.

I knew I had seen other pictures of the Diamond Reos before, and tried googling " pa us6 "diamond reo" ".  Got lucky and several thumbnails came up directing me back to, of course, the HTP forum (not Facebook! ::)) to a thread put together by Boll Weevil when he was running for Shuster's Building Components.  Unfortunately the images aren't showing, maybe if he's out there he could repost them.

This MCL WhiteGMC was headed in the opposite direct on the QE Way. Rob: Astros in Canada. Probably loaded in Lewiston, NY where Leaseway picked up US loads and dropped these for delivery in Canada.

Nice catch, I wonder if A-H was bringing the ones over from Detroit back in the day, like you said earlier, maybe just the ones in Southwestern Ontario came across there. Those vans were so new yet then I remember being eye level with one at a red light (on the upper deck) and noticing just how compounded the rear doors were, from the side looks they had a stubby flat butt. Also noting that after Chrysler had a good start on the mini van craze -thought they were more of a station wagon style then van- and then GM came out one year later with what looked like a mini van! I was amused! We still have a 1994 shorty that is in pretty good condition!

Nice shot along the QEW...fruit trees growing close to the highway. Only 2 lanes each direction; gravel shoulders and cable deviders. Not much traffic. All that has changed.. Then I realise that your picture is 25  years old!

Twenty-five years ago, you could stop somewhere and take some photos and not worry about barriers or traffic. Here's a load of Grand Marquis and Crown Vics bound for Ft Erie or Buffalo on the same day.

Another MCL going the other direction, probably to Lewiston or Buffalo. Pretty safe bet to say this whole load rusted away ten years ago.

That load was built at Cami in Ingersoll Ontario.
As you said; if on the QEW by St Catharines lilkely being shuttled off to Buffalo.
I wonder, could there have been a rail shipping point somewhere near BUF to load and ship to California?

Ingersoll has both inbound and outbound rail head. These are destined for somewhere in NY where Leaseway would forward them to dealers in the East. Some  Canadian production was trucked to Windsor or Detroit for rail loading west. This truck would return with US-built GM units.
