I actually saw a USF Holland P&D pup in the NEW livery on Wedensday of last week.  It sure looked sharp, wish they had more pups. :|  Also got a shot of an IdealLease Prostar with a UPS long box.

I saw that Vitran has begun removing Sierra West Express  logos from the Wabash trailers they inheritted. Looks like their leaving the older eqipment as-is and converting the Wabash duraplates to Vitran Livery.  Also noticed they have added a 'W" to all the SWE trailers, most likely to designate West.  Unit 1169 now appears as 1169W. Saw it in Reno today.

I have been seeing a bunch of new Hyundai trailers for Oak Harbor this past week. Maybe someone has more info on this one.

ABF Columbia sleeper single axle tractor. Talked to the driver, he and another driver team out of B.C. Interesting truck.

Hit the post button early on the last one!  Here are some Roadway and Reddaway units that look just like the Yellow unit except they are single axles.

Are the interiors the same? I'd be surprised if the Raodway/Yellow 08 Volvos have AM/FM radios?

Ours at Reddaway have CD players and passenger seats.  The Roadway version didn't appear to have the passenger seat and I doubt they have the CD player.  Ours come with dual CB antennas as well which is a long standing joke at Reddaway as drivers remove them and throw them away to put their own on anyhow.  Money wasted that could be used for another upgrade.

It has been reported that Yellow Salt Lake will be getting 9 or 11 (the line man wasn't sure) 08 FL Columbia day cabs with the Detriot Diesel they will be numbered in the 47*** series, triple power.

Might have to go back to the Motel 6 in Boise after I see one in the lot some morning!  That should be a neat looking truck!
