I can't ever recall seeing an NYCE sleeper, nice catch.

Thanks for the posting, but this really should go to the food service area or the regular New Equipment Sightings thread in Anything Trucking Related. They are not a LTL carrier. But, we are kind of loose about this and its certainly not a big deal...

Thanks,

Got a closer look at the Volvo VNM for TP....I stand corrected, it is a brand new tractor!!

Would this be the first NEW equipment for TP?

Nate. I have a shot of that TP Volvo VNM on my TP page.  I shot it last year near Grants Pass.

I think they had an older tandem axle VNM as well.  I used to see the single axle one about every trip somewhere down there.  Mike probably knows where they hide it!

Excellent catch Paul!

Rumor has it they're getting a good deal from Sterling to get rid of inventory! Rumors are like, well you know...But maybe its true? :|

I agree with Nate, that's a nice find. 

Nate, that rumor sounds feasible. It seems in PA, they send all of the newer tractors that aren't Volvos up to the northern part of the state.
