I saw a  Estes F-liner FL112 day-cab pulling a 53" . I did a triple take. I've never seen a freightliner for estes ever. These must be a pretty rare truck in their fleet.

Very interesting find Jim.  They usually run coast to coast, and the long boxes are mostly shipped by rail.  My guess would be that CSX has been living up to their name.  Crash Smash and eXplode.  Most likely the rails are jammed.

Or it could be a short run that the rails don't service....

FLC or FL (Business class)?  Estes had four FLC11242ST's here in Baltimore for a time, 16015 through 16045, but these are old sightings, back when all Estes tractor numbers ended in "5".  I also show a pair of FL112's 63107 and 63112.

Estes also had some FLD112 and 120 sleepers in their original special services division (back in the "Big E" days), I think they were folded into the regular linehaul fleet.
It's a Mack thing. you wouldn't understand.....

AAA Cooper started getting the GMC's in 06 or 07. Thats our new P&D power that we have been getting. We also have some of the new single axle volvos without the side fairings that we use in the city also.

Do they have the GM or the little Cummins in them?

And welcome to the site.

They have the GM in them. They seem to be a lot smaller than the volvos...

It definately was a FLC. That's interesting. I've never seen any FLD sleepers for them either. I always thought they ran the Inter 9200s for special services div.

On another note, I have also seen dark blue Volvo VNs pulling Estes Innovative trailers. I've seen 3 or 4 in the last few weeks.
