Still Working – Single Stack Mack

The other day I was heading down I-690 when I noticed this truck in a parking lot. I had a few seconds to decide if I should exit the interstate and swing around for a picture. I went for it and changed lanes. I didn’t catch a single light. Fate was with me. Or so I thought. Traffic stalled. As it turned out the R-Model was backing up a drive way directly in front of a busy three way intersection. In the end I had to settle for a windshield shot but that’s all I needed to capture this old rig.

    Trying to figure out if that’s an old Tobin or northern block unit. Definitely not Santaro.

      If I had to choose I would say Tobin as they take care of their equipment. Most of the Northern stuff was outright scrapped last year.

        Riccelli scrapped all the Northern trucks and put his fleet in? Still red or all blue?
        I haven’t seen Joe Riccelli in 20 years. My dad use to haul for him when his garage was on Hiawatha. Remember going to his house in Fulton.

    And I don’t think it’s an R model. The offset air cleaner and long mirror brackets make me think its a DM series.
