As Chris said, it's a parcel team rental from Penske. Pretty nice tractor those boys get.

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

Not sure on which line it's running, but there is one domicilled in Pasco.

Not sure if this is really new, but around here, FedEx Freight's been using Freightliner FL70s and former AF units in their straight truck fleet.  I caught this newer International 4300 Friday 3/19/10 heading WB on Grant Ave. in Philadelphia.
The foot turned to the horse, the horse to the carriage, the carriage to the train, and the train to the truck.

We have a 4300 here in Kansas City, but the numbering on that one is interesting, appears to be Viking numbering.

The odd thing about our 4300 is that it uses our Volvo keys, kinda weird.

A Volvo key is an actual Volvo factory key. Pretty fancy setup for a truck key. All of ours came keyed differently. A line drivers delight, P&Ds worst nightmare. The internationals at Motor Cargo all had the same key from 1994-2006.
