ATCA Upper Canada Part II

Earlier this year when International announced the HX520 to complete their vocational lineup I was excited yet sad at the same time. I figured it would be years before I saw one of these beautiful new trucks as the trucking and constructions companies around Central New York are not often earlier adopters of new truck models. Hope was restored quickly when browsing through promotional photos from Truck World, the premier heavy truck trade show of Canada, when I saw the unmistakable color scheme of the Tackaberry Companies. At that moment I knew my chances of seeing a new HX just increased exponentially. My faith was rewarded this weekend when the Tackaberry HX520 was proudly on display at the ATCA Upper Canada classic truck show in Athens, Ontario.

On the GM side of the fence there were more than a few nice models from the Doornekamp collection including the exceedingly rare Chevy Bison.

I really only captured a small portion of the great trucks that were on hand. I guess I was feeling out of it but that’s how it goes some days.

Some rolling stock footage. Canadian axles setups are slightly different than what is commonly seen in the United States.

    The “Canadian Spread” (distance between the center of the drives (axle)) is 60 inches.

    Would you have any interest in pics of a late model (2013 or so) Volvo Globetrotter cab over in Robert Transport Colours?
