    I could be wrong but the P-16 looks to be a pre 77 small window cab yet the quality of the pic says its not a old picture.The truck and trailer look to be in great shape..

    They do have a vintage feel to them, but the loader in the foreground made me think they were recent. Excellent photography either way.

    This P16 looks like an ex Hayes Forest truck. They had two sister trucks just like this. Was this Gordi Neva's truck

    Malloch & Moseley had 2 or 3 P 16 Pacific's (#140 , #141 , #142 ?) at Kilbella Bay in 1979 , I believe they were moved to the Caycuse / Renfrew area when Malloch pulled out of Rivers Inlet . When Malloch & Moseley transition to Forest Land Industries , they were part of the deal . When Hayes bought out Forest Land Industries , the were part of the deal .
