Do you ever seen a certain truck or maybe a trucks from a certain fleet that you want to photograph but never seem to have the chance? That is how I feel with the fleet of Ruston Paving. Their Syracuse office is stone’s trow away from my front porch but I have just one photo to prove it. Hardly a week will pass when I don’t pass their yard or see one of the vehicles returning home. Eventually I had to settle for this photo taken at the local Freightliner dealership of their Paystar dump truck. Other units of the Syracuse fleet include a Autocar ACL or two, a Peterbilt and a sharp looking Freightliner FLD setup to haul the lowboy. Of course there is a wide variety of heavy equipment many of which wear the distinctive Ruston blue.
The Ruston’s website also has a great collection of vintage photos dating back to the very start of the company. Take a moment to visit by clicking here. One of my favorites happens to be the Mack F-Model hauling a lowboy and the shot of paving occurring outside the Onondaga County War Memorial. It’s good to a see a company that is proud of its heritage.
