I do, however, remember when they dug the foundation to put the dirt in!


Hope they had a permit!

Somebody accused me of being "older than dirt" once.  I corrected them.  I am NOT older than dirt.  I do, however, remember when they dug the foundation to put the dirt in!

Jim,
Were you actually there when they put the engine on that carriage?  LOL!  With the number of old pictures you have in your possession, it seems like you may have been around since the beginning!
Just kiddin'.  I'm not far behind you.  I just did not think to take pictures along the way!

The Brockway truck line actually started in about 1865 as a carriage works. In 1910 the son hung a gas engine on one of Daddy's freight wagons and created his first truck.
Here are a couple of the original Brockways.





Fine examples of horsepower!

Jim, These pictures are from 2010. Is this truck still around New England??


To the best of my knowledge, the Brockway is housed at one of the company's facilities in Western Mass.  It doesn't get out on a very regular basis but they have hauled it to various construction expos in Las Vegas and Louisville, etc.
