This is the dashboard of a 2007 Sterling with the new Emissions Engine. When the engine light comes on you must pull over and "regenerate" the filter. I hear it's a nightmare already!

We don't see a lot of Yellow equipment in this location but I saw what looked like a new pup today . Had a large rectangular graphic on the side at the front just below the roof line. I had not seen one like that before.  Was just a single box so probably being used on local P/D today.

I don't whether YRC Logistics is TL or LTL as I have never seen one before but I got this one sitting over behind the Sears ramp today.

Hello all. I'm a former FedEx Freight P & D driver, recently moved to National (Watkins) to get into linehaul quicker. I've come across what I swear was an International ProStar Freight truck running linehaul between Minneapolis and Des Moines. It wouldn't surprise me that FedEx was testing a more fuel effcient tractor. This interests me because someone at Freight told me that in the future, Freight and National would be getting the same tractor, purchased through Freight's offices. I really liked the '06 VN I was driving at Freight, but I think the new Internationals are some good looking trucks. Any sightings/info?

I forgot to mention; I saw another Old Dominion set of doubles on the QEW heading from the border towards Toronto on the weekend. I don't know whether Speedy is still doing the P&D but they must strip the freight off the OD pups as I've never seen them being used.
