    That's how it looks to me, was off the truck with the articulated frame which looks like that one in #135.

    Hi guys, I'm new on here, and putting together a write-up on the Butler trucks, for an automotive blog I'm on, as well as other BC-built trucks. Could I use some of the pictures and info that have been posted in this thread?

    Wow! How wide of road and what kind of radius on the curves do you need to get that thing down a mountain side? That thing must be over 120' long when loaded.

    Where is the butler truck now? I had heard when I volunteered at the Port Alberni Industrial heritage society a few years ago that it had been scrapped.
