Like this Dave? This was our 04.



Medford only has 2 line drivers now. One runs to Seattle the other runs to Portland. A Seattle driver also comes down to Medford. So both line tractors are used in the day on P&D, Medford also has a puddle jumper and a newer 4400 tractor.

I saw an NEMF 4300 straight truck last night.  It might not be new to the fleet, but it's new to the local terminal.
The foot turned to the horse, the horse to the carriage, the carriage to the train, and the train to the truck.

The 32 foot lift gates are pretty new, 08's. Portland got quiet a few, and Eugene has one. They brought in a few 53's as well, Eugene doesn't really need one, so not sure why they got one, but hey, never turn down a lift gate in the trailer pool!!  :-D

As I'm writing this, there's a Con-Way Cascadia hooked to a long box on P&D backed up to the dock at Bunzl.  They sure didn't waste any time slip seating these things! :-P  Unfortunately, due to the fading light, I won't be able to get a picture. :-(

I just saw another Con-Way Cascadia hooked to a 53' rental on I-70 in Salina, KS about 20 minutes ago.

I've been seeing them all week pulling triples on I-5. I went by the local barn but it doesn't seem to have them, I'd imagine they are put of Portland.

I've been seeing about 3  Con-Way Cascadias a night between Spokane and Seattle.  I assume they are Seattle based.  Nice looking trucks!

Southeastern Mack (Vision or Pinnacle  :?) on I-75 today near Estero FL.  8-)

Took a while but i finally caught another Southeastern Mack doing P&D work this morning along Jones Loop Road in Punta Gorda FL.

Coming up I-81 this morning i saw the following UPSF units between Pulaski VA & Winchester VA.  :-)

White Prostar sleepers with the acorn on the airshield pulling pups.

A Volvo sleeper in the brown/grey livery pulling an Advance Auto Parts long box.

A white Mack (Vision or Pinnacle not sure) with the acorn on the doors with Advance Auto Parts pups.

Charlie,
    The white ProStar sleepers are "real" UPS sleeper team tractors, not UPS Freight. :wink:

I don't know about that, Chris.  I've seen several pictures of white Columbias for Freight recently that were leased from Penske.  I think Freight may be doing what UPS has already been doing for their teams.  Without a picture, I can't say for certain.
