*deep sigh*

Me too. Though for me it's the Kenworth.

That Prime reefer is a nice trailer, especially with the singles

I have a Peterbilt 357 on loan from the Flagstaff dealer, in exchange for giving them the keys to #20 as a demo vehicle for a while. :D

Are those DRLs, or are your high beams cross-connected to the low beam circuit? Looks like low beams aren't not, just hi. (FYI I'm not nit picking, I'm just wondering if this is intended or a bug of some kind).

Nice truck!

Nah, this one of those vehicles where the low beam turns off when the high beams are on, but since this isn't simulated, I just had marker lights, and was holding the high beam flasher for the picture. :D

Here's the first load I took - double dumps.

This is why the game is fun, although I normally only do Intermodal (Containers), Cars, and Reefers, you can also try out new things. I was thinking of adding a new branch to both sides of United for oversize agriculture hauling.

Although, this might be a problem. . .

Just out of curiosity, and mostly "because I can", I decided to recreate an austrailian style b-triple using only scs assets, and this is the result. two 20ft reefer pups leading a 53ft reefer. Handles pretty decently, just have to mind the 53ft trailer taking a much sharper path in turns than the shorter trailers.

The truck also handled this pretty well, a solid 8 mpg the whole trip, through plenty of twisty backroads, and through the desert.

The look of the combination as it goes over the undulating road is really quite cool.
