Awesome pic. Can you tell what brand trucks they are? Wonder what they are mining? Wonder how many complained about having to line up for some stupid picture.....

Can't read all the name on the side of the truck. Can make out "Excavating Co".

I'll go with that. Never heard of them but that doesn't mean much. Probably bought components and constructed a dump truck. Would look really cool sitting under a tree in my front yard!!!! :)

Me too. My guess is that it's a crushing operation. The crusher is in the ground, and the trucks haul the material to the crusher and dump it in, where it is crushed, screened, and sent by conveyor to the tower. It is then loaded out into RR cars or sent by conveyor to a stock pile. Could be most anything I guess; the ones I have seen produced aggregate for concrete and crushed ag lime.

And it would look even cooler having a half dozen or more all lined up nicely like in the pic !!!(in your front yard.

Awesome pic, Bruce!
