|Loading at the IOL refinery at Regina, Saskatchewan.|
|This was a Diamond-T 921 with a really hot 220 Cummins in it.She'd put 8 inches of flame out the stack if you really put your foot into it.
My partner and I were cross-shifting out of Regina hauling asphalt (350 degrees F.) from the I.O.L. refinery to a paving job on #41 in Man. Note the padding wired to the trailer for insulation. Standard procedure back then.
|Jerry left the Husky,and I had supper there and I was just getting ready to leave when a driver came in and said "There's a oil tanker on it's side at the bottom of the Indianhead grade". He was probably doing 74 when he augured in. He hardly got scratched.
That's not water you see in the ditch. It's congealed liquid asphalt.
|The old T-Diamond back on her wheels, but a little bent out of shape, as was the owner, John Cronin. (T-Diamond is slang, not a typo).|
