Yesterday I was finishing a session of truck hunting when I decided to travel down one more industrial back road with the hope of finding something interesting. At this point the haul had been somewhat disappointing but the excitement of breaking in a new camera was helping to fill the void of not grabbing any meaningful shots. The end result of that “last” road? A Brockway 359. The old circle on the door and black hood scream to me that this truck was a former government vehicle. NYSDOT or NYS Thruway maybe? No evidence of a plow in its past. There is even a faded and torn “Husky Town USA” bumper sticker. Maybe at some point this truck made it to the national show in Cortland, NY?
By the way, this street was loaded with old trucks of all kinds, stay tuned this week for more surprises.
According to sources in the know this 359 was the last Brockway in the Schyuler County fleet. This truck is running a PT270 Cummins with a 5 x 4 transmission.
