Carrier Industries volvo daycab pulling a NEMF trailer. Never seen anything besides Mack CH for them.

Nice, would you happen to know what model it was? :?

It was a VNM model, I believe. Older one, maybe 2002 or 2003 by the looks of it.

Thanks for the info!  It doesn't surprise me that there are some Volvos in the fleet, seeing as how NEMF and Eastern Freightways have them too.

Saw a white New Penn Wabash Duraplate XD today on my way home from school.  Was parked far off the road, but as far as I know, they were all green before.  Sign of the times? :|

Nice catch, that white truck actually goes better with the scheme better than the green or yellow ones do! :-o

Great pic, this could be an ex Penske truck.  R&L has a yellow one just like this running around down by Nates neck of the woods.  Its has the same exact decals as this one and is Penske yellow.  I figured maybe they got it from Penske.  anyone know???

Yeah, the Yellow ones are Penske.  I've seen the faded lettering.  Maybe it's an ex-Ryder. :wink:

I saw new Old Dominion tandem axle longbox with a liftgate and it had super single tires on it, could not get a clear picture though because it was raining when I saw it.
