The usual load of midweek photos, with a fair variety, if I do say so myself.😀
Without further ado, let's get started.
First today, an unusual view of a Mack Granite for Solid Rock, who're headquartered in, appropriately, Rocky Mount, Virginia.
A Sutphen Monarch for the Greensboro, NC FD.
I thought the sign added a little interest to the shot, especially considering it was a grab-shot while driving by.
A cool Kenworth T800.
A spiffy Proterra ZX5 for the Greensboro Transit Agency.
This is a battery electric bus, which is something of a throwback for GTA...
Originally founded by Southern Public Utilities (subsidiary of Duke Power) in 1925 to provide public transportation to the area, in 1934 they began using trackless trolleys (basically a bus with trolley poles on top to collect power from catenary) in downtown GSO. This of course made sense for a power company to have electric buses, as they provided their own fuel. Not sure how long that lasted, but I'd assume it lasted no longer than the early 60's. In 1990 the City of GSO took over GTA operations from Duke.
Another for the City of GSO, this time a typically nice Sutphen Monarch.
A Ford F-350.
A clean Chevrolet 3500 for Neese's Country Sausage from Greensboro, NC.
I've ate Neese's all my life, and though I've of course had other sausage, nothing compares to Neese's!
Homemade biscuits and gravy, with a couple pieces of Neese's on top - a truly delicious local staple!
A Western Star 4700 for P&S Grading from Greensboro, NC.
A Volvo VNM for Biscuitville, whose headquarters are in Greensboro, NC.
An incredibly popular place for breakfast and lunch; from personal experience, no fast food restaurant's breakfast even comes close. Though dietary restrictions prevent me from eating there now, in the past I've eaten at this very Bville hundreds of times.
A Kenworth T800.
A Freightliner M2-112 for Hutchens Petroleum from Stuart, Virginia.
Another Freightliner, this time a 114SD for L&W Supply, who're headquartered in Chicago, Illinois.
A fairly decent looking Peterbilt 377.
Appears to be missing an air cleaner.
A nice Kenworth W900L.
A sharp Kenworth W990.
A Peterbilt 389.
Still with PACCARs, we have another Pete, this one nice 379 for Clapp's Trucking from Liberty, NC.
A clean Freightliner M2-106 for Charles D Lowder from Winston-Salem, NC.
A cool Kenworth T800 involved in some serious tree trimming work.
And lastly, a nifty International Durastar for the City of Greensboro, NC.
