Still Working – International S-Series Dump Truck

This past Thursday I was staking out a busy truck watching spot in downtown Syracuse. I was about to call it quits when I heard this International approaching from the opposite side of the avenue. There was no mistake about the power plant from the notes played by the exhaust pipe. DETROIT POWER! I hung out for another 10 minutes are so hoping the truck would return back down the same path. The Detroit announced the return of the truck before it was visible. I’m not experienced enough to tell you what model. Probably something a make that was popular when this truck was new in the early 80’s. Unfortunately I was standing in the middle of a class 852 hurricane so there is no video that would have helped identify what was under the hood.

The brown paint and white stripe on the hood remind be of the old Waste Management scheme.
