Labnuke99 the question was can a VLAN be on more than one trunk, not can a trunk carry more than one VLAN !

Danial, the answer is YES.

Generally a VLAN can be trunked (tagged) on as many ports as needed (a few have a limit, but almost always more than one). As there may be more than one adjacent switch that needs connectivity to a particular VLAN, this has to be possible.

A trunk port typically carries more than one VLAN. You will need to provide more information about the equipment and OS version for a more detailed answer.
