    Must be an interesting story on the truck with Alaska Freight Lines on the door.
    When I was kid I recall hearing some stories about a company with the same name, that worked quite a fleet of trucks here in Alaska in the '50s and (early? '60s). Wonder if there is any connection? There was a video that shows a company of that name hauling cargo for DEW line work.

    Those Alaska trucks I believe were logging the pool behind Ross Dam on the Skagit. It took place in the '50s during the raising of the dam. They cut the area and floated them North into BC as the water level gradually grew. they went into BC since that was the only road access. At the time of construction, Ross Dam was only served by an incline railway. Silver Skagit was the logging company. I do remember that.

    Your correct Jumbo . These pictures were taken by Lloyd Thompson who's son Russel let Bill Elliot copy them . Some of these pictures were taken at Kelly Logging at Juskatla in the QCI's . I heard Lloyd mention , he started to drive Logging Trucks in the QCI's . So I would assume Lloyd left the QCI's and worked at the Silver Skagit before hiring on driving logging truck at BCFP Harris Creek in August 1954 . The pictures are mixed up , but I'm reasonably sure the Logging Trucks with the long reach's dumping in the river , are the Silver Skagit .

    I agree with Jumbo as I remember Hank Suderman had a lot of the samme pictures as his Dad work there or was involved with the logging operation .

    Yes and a few others, some of the pictures are to large to post so that is how it is.
