Matheson is using those little T8's to run the mail around the Puget Sound area here Nate. Usually see them pulling 45-48' trailers.

The middle tractor in the 2nd stack had some rust in the wheels, I didn't understand that, now I do!

Sounded like a Cat when it went by, I wonder what they kind of hp they are running, as these will be used for doubles and triples duties out of Reno and Sacramento.

Oh, oh, oh, I saw a ODFL Columbia yesterday in Sparks, no picture though. I know, its not new anymore. But I just wanted to post here once, instead of just read about the new stuff!<LOL>

That was just so funny! I got a good laugh over that line. So, I'm typing my post, I'm thinking Cascadia and the fingers type Columbia...So, it was a Cascadia I saw, not so bad. But still way behind the curve.

I wanted to get a photo of that unit. But, it so rarely gets on the street, or I just never see it. I have a photo of it in the yard in Sparks. I'll post it if you like.

Admittedly this is not the greatest pic, it was emailed to me from my contact at HQ. No idea who took it but it's a glimpse.  Should have better ones soon.

I'm not sure if these have been mentioned or not, but I saw a R&L Prostar in West Virginia today.

Here are a bunch of ABF Sterlings sitting next door to Midway Sterling, Kansas City ,Mo.  This has been the dealer of choice for ABF for many, many years. They have delivered both Ford's and Sterlings to ABF along with taking their trades, too.  i have seen a yard full of green used Volvo's and Mack's as well.   What is interesting to me, is the dock pictured, is the former Ryder Truck Lines dock I worked at in 1979 thru 1982.  After they moved in 1983, they sold the building to Midway.

Gotta break it in some how Roog! This first run will be the lightest work it does for the next 7-10 years, knowing how Con-Way works they're tractors!

Great catch, Chris!

Looks like it might be the new short hood version of the Cascadia?  Like a 112"BBC or so?  Nice looking truck for Con-way.
