Quinella,

Sorry but Jean-Paul being fond of vintage American trucks, I'm afraid that the Autocar and the Mack will stay on this side of the pond.

2 Autaa heavy haulage sets, a transprt and craneage company from South-West of France:



Scania T164G-580 6x4/2 tractor and 4-axle Nooteboom Euro 83-04 lowloader with extendable ultra-low bed (WSI models) loaded with a 31.2 tonnes Vögele Super 3000-2 tracked finisher and its extensions distribution screws plus extra vibrating tables (NZG model):

Volvo FH16II-T580 6x4/2 tractor + Nooteboom OSDS 58-04/V 4-axle extendable lowbed semi-trailer (WSI models) carrying a 43.95 tonnes Liebherr R 944C-Tunnel excavator equipped with a "shovel ripper" for underground work and a 2.2 tonnes Erkat ER2000 hydraulic milling tool (NZG models):

End of the sixties somewhere on a German road, a FAUN L1206 WP/45Z 6x6/2 ballasted tow truck and its Scheuerle T 3541S 2+2-line drawbar lowloader (NZG models) are moving a 40 tonnes Demag H41 shovel (modified NZG model, probably my very first NZG purchase in the seventies):

Guy, I’m not a big European truck fan but the Scalia T164G-580 and Renault 4x4/2 tractor are 2 very sharp rides. Your team also does very nice customization and scratch building. The dioramas are also very nice.

Guy, Quinella was also wondering if you could forward to him the phone numbers of the two young lady truck drivers in your last picture post. He is looking for drivers in his long haul division.
