Agreed the original image was dark, thanks for prepping it so we can see.  I’ve seen archbar trucks like that before.


But what I’m curious about is what IS that load?

Bob and Friends,


The Interstate image was super dark, and I was curious about the trucks. So I took a screenshot and did some simple Photoshop manipulation, which is presented in the attached image.


The trucks are archbar, but a type I can't remember ever seeing. The lower chord dips down considerably below the springs.


Yours Aye,
