One of each please, and a bonus

Lots of oversixe loads movbing off and on the piers inHalifax this week, but often under less than ideal lighting conditions.
At noon time today however, there were three Groupe Robert Volvos lined up at Fairview. Oddly all three were different.

One day cab in the centre, flanked by a low rise sleeper and a high rise sleeper. We don't see too many Robert trucks here, even though they are a very large Quebec company. However we do see Watson trucks (which is a division of Robert).

And that was the bonus, this dandy Watson KW. No 3878 has less chrome than its counterpart 3879 that has been here many times before.

Watson is the usual carrier for Bombardier aircraft components, and maybe Roberts were here for something else, but in view of the common ownership it is more likely they were here for fuselages too.

Going to the dogs

Not a truck in sight, so my annual homage to

Classic Mercedes Coupe.

And one for the road:

Backseat driver

Oh and why not another one:

Stop, Look and Listen

Freightliner from BC

This Freightliner with British Columbia plates showed up today - well coated with road salt.

Aside from a COE cab with generous sleeper, the tractor chassis carried a large drom box for additional cargo capacity.
The US DOT number 125550 is allocated the Atlas Van Lines, Evansville, IN, so I have no idea who the operator is for this unit.
