Spotted this Fedex Freight KW at Staples Wharehouse in Ontario, Ca.  Walking by it I could smell that smell the engine gives off when its new. On the door it has the name of the Driver and that he has 27 years safe driving

I couldnt believe it, but on my way to SC on interstate 95 at a Kenworth dealer
outside of Richmond, I saw a Estes T660! It looked great! I didnt know Estes was
getting those-I guess they are going to replace the iInternational sleepers they use now
I wish I could get a pic but the dealership is up high facing the highway so the only
way i could get a pic is go into the actual dealer. Anyone else heard about Estes getting T660s?

Most likely a sleeper for their sleeper teams, I'd imagine the 9400's are getting a little tired.

10-4 on the T660 being a sleeper unit. Just wanted to clarify.

That FedEx Freight Kenworth is the 2009 model of the T300.  I guess their ordering new P&D units to replace the ex-AF equipment.

Chris that would be a Viking unit and an award for his safe driving record. West will continue to order new city units while the East will use down graded road power and the AF 8100's for city drivers. They told us we have too many city units that are past their age for retirement but they don't have enough miles on them to sell. I think you will continue to see a few new units but not mass number's. I would love to have one of those little units they look alot nicer than the old one's. Nice shots Dino!

Here is one of Mountain Valley Express's new FL Cascadias, the local terminal got one a couple of weeks ago or so...



Mountain Valley Express is a small regional carrier that operates in California and Nevada.
