have any of you guys seen a pic of the estes t660 i got one from the kc terminal?

I haven't seen one, but the Estes yard is in the old American Freightways yard off Speaker road. Maybe I'll ride down there and see if I can take a few shots.

We've been getting some new trailers in lately and I can remember when P2700s were new, here is the elusive P20000.  I have seen pups in the P205xx range, but all those zeros look pretty cool.

A few people have seen them before, and it is truckload. Although they might be hybrid truckload and LTL. Anyone know?

We allow UPS Freight TL here, along with USF Logistics which is TL, so why cant Conway TL be here?

It'll stay.

We have been told Roadway will be receiving around 750 new trailers over the comming months.  They are already starting to weed out some of the older ones.  Here are a few they have pulled out of service in KC.  Notice one of the deadline trailers is a former Dugan. The pup is a former Spartan. Will post the new ones when I see them.

Thanks for the heads up Big L.  Do you know if these new trailers will be all long boxes or will we see a bit of pups as well?

Estes Volvo VNL daycab s/a...

I rescind my sighting. My memory was letting me down, It was an ODFL Volvo VNL sleeper s/a I had seen... I remember the carrier being solid on one make (Estes being International and ODFL being Freightliner)... Sorry guys...

I saw three more on I-40 today and quickly refreshed my memory.

Also saw a Roadway linehaul Sterling... Solid blue with orange bumper. I'm sre it was a daycab s/a, wish I got a pic.

Roadway already got rid of a few of those trailers here in Philadelphia.  I've seen three so far, two at loading docks and one in a parking lot where drivers park for the weekend, so they're all still being used by someone.
The foot turned to the horse, the horse to the carriage, the carriage to the train, and the train to the truck.

Word has it, no new pups, all 53's and some city 40's

I've heard the same thing.  I was hoping they'd be getting some new pups too.  Time will tell I guess.
