Gasoline powered tractor painted to replicate the look of a local shipper from a few years back.

Shared the road with the newly introduce 1953 Mack B model.

Just wondering- was Gay's ever connected to Holmes?  Always had that idea

Holmes went on a buying spree and Gay's Express and several other NE based companies were scooped up.

Gay's had just built their large terminal north of the St. Johnsbury terminal in Bellows Falls, VT (actually Westminster) when it then became the Holmes terminal.  Years go by and then Holmes is gone.

For about the last 25 years the building has served as the eastern terminal/main office for BDR Transport which is owned by the next generation of the Gay family.  The story has gone full circle now.

It doesn't cost anything to pay attention.

Thx Jim- I remember going by that terminal  ( St J) on my way to my Alma Mater in Northfield-before 89 was finished.  Also think there was a ilk hauler (Goddard??) in that same stretch that had a bunch of Ford Super Duties.

In any case that LFT is a beauty-then again maybe I'm just partial to black fenders, green cabs and red chassis😎
