How come only 1 spot mirror? ??? Thought the NMFA specifies one on each side? ???

Charlie,

There's one on the drivers mirror, passenger mirror, and passenger fender, same as the rest of the Macks and Sterlings.

Not sure if it has been noted, but saw a Cascadia for Wilson. Was at a bad angle and caught off guard, so no pick. Running north on I-95 outside of Jacksonville.

Supposedly FedEx Freight has a new Kenworth in Harrison, Arkansas.  Unsure of the model but it's supposed to NOT be a T660.

Will try to take a Harrison run to see if it's true.

Not a big LTL guy, but a saw a new Ward Trucking Cascadia in White! I also think it has aluminum rims too.

Yesterday I saw 3 brand new YRC Volvo VNM sleepers rolling up I-29 north of St. Joseph, MO.  These were white with the new YRC logo.  They were all 3 connected but not in a typical piggyback setup, it appeared there were attachments to the 5th wheel of the front that lifted the steer axle of the tractor behind.

No pic, totally took me by surprise.

Setup like this roogie? 

Interesting that their VNM sleepers. That models isn't commonly seen like that. However, the VNM is the staple model of YRC's fleet, so it makes sense.
The foot turned to the horse, the horse to the carriage, the carriage to the train, and the train to the truck.

Exactly, however the Volvos had a relatively small sleeper compared to these.

Thanks for this pic!

I imagine those were single axle YRC Volvo VNMs for triples service to replace the blue ones the are currently running.

They were single axle, plus the sleeper cab was fairly small compared to most Volvo sleepers I've seen.

They have to be short enough to pull triples under the antiquated Oregon 105' length law.

 Today I saw 2 new YRC Freight Volvo mid-roofs running on I-84 about an hour apart from each other.

These are exactly what I saw, they surprised me and I wasn't able to get a shot since they were being towed in a 3 pack.

Great pic Mike, now I know I wasn't seeing things!  :)

Mike should be seeing these on a regular basis as they will be based in SLC and run to Portland.  We can thank Oregon and their 105' length law for these!

Has anyone heard of Saia getting twin screw Prostar's with sleepers? Saw one this morning on US 301 in Lawtey, FL, heading into Jacksonville.
