Road Trip Report #1

Truckfax travels far and wide for photos-and so apparently does Scott-Wood Transport, from Maple, ON. The specialist tilt deck and oversize carrier has a long history, and a fleet to do just about any odd-size project.

I spotted their Kenworth #376 when we shared a ride on the ferry Jos. Deschenes between Baie-Ste-Catherine and Tadoussac, QC on August 5. There is a very long hill out of Tadoussac, so I had lots of time to get ahead and set up for the highway shot!

(If you don't know where on earth this is, it is about 150 miles northeast of Quebec City on the north shore of the St.Lawrence River at the mouth of the Saguenay River.) There is lots of industrial activity on the lower north shore in such places as Baie Comeau, Sept Iles and inland in Quebec and Labrador, that are accesible by highway 138, the main artery. There is lots of trucking activity, and I will show more later in the summer.

The truck is a healthy KW T800, with tandem axle, a single axle dolly and a four axle float trailer. The dolly appears to be getting a real workout in the road shot, hope they made it!

Scott-Woods is an interesting outfit, and they have a very informative web site. See:
