Those are brand new (Cummins ISX powered with DEF, 10spd manuals, lack of lower side fairings).  Seems they've been skipping the R124xx range as the new Volvos we've been getting in Kansas City are R125xx numbered.  Usually when that happens there is a different brand involved, so I wonder if the R124xx range will be something besides KW or Volvo.

International Prostars perhaps? ???

That'd be nice, I like ones we have even though they aren't real twin screws.  Most of our RMD twin screw fleet is pretty old too, it'd be nice to see new twin screws for the RMDs.

Fed Ex Freight is starting to run some KW T-660s in the Northwest.  They seem to be numbered in the 12300-series so they must be fairly new if not brand new.  Haven't seen on with triples yet and probably wont judging by the weather this coming week.  I know these aren't new to Fed Ex but they are new to this area which was once dominated by Viking influenced T-800s.

The first new FXF Volvo that I saw pass through my dealer was R12492. http://hankstruckforum.com/htforum/index.php?topic=55836.msg477093#msg477093

Saw these new ones (in another thread too) Tuesday at a rest area on I-70 westbound in Ellsworth, Kansas.

Probably a T800. They got some new day cabs that run on natural gas to test out in CA.

Here's a new UPS Mack Pinnacle tandem axle they recently got here in Portland, OR.  See it pulling containers around town as well as the flatbeds with air crates on them they shuttle between the Potland sort facility on Swan Island and the airport.

Very nice catch Mike! I had hoped to see one of these on one of my trips to Macungie, but no luck.

Not sure if its been announced yet, but Lakeville Motor Express out of MN is ordering 165 Prostars.  About time they get some new equipment in.  Maybe I'll get lucky and spot 1 or 2 at their ex Conway terminal in Janesville, WI.

After seeing all of their used power, it's nice to see they're getting more trucks.

I couldn't tell what branch it was for, but I drove by the NE Philadelphia Airport today on my way home from school and a single axle UPS Cascadia was sitting in the driveway with a Ryder long van. It was either for Cartage or Freight for the lettering under the acorn, but since it was at the airport, I'm going to say it was a Cartage unit.

X3 on the about time for some new equipment. They've been adding some new trailers over the past year. I've heard some horror stories about the ex-Heartland and Transport America trailers they use.

Another long wheelbase LTL tractor. I like it! Are they for pulling any sort of LCVs Roogie or just twin-screw tractors to scale heavier loads?

Greg I'm almost positive these will go to Denver since they have Rocky Mountain Doubles bids and the twin screws they have for those runs are pretty old.

Sounds logical to me! I had a feeling that's where they're going.
