O'Boyle Tank Lines (out of the Washington DC area, ran mostly green R600's with gold trim)

Cement Express (York, PA, ran Mack R600's and White 4064T/RBM64T/RB2M64T, black with a yellow stripe at the beltline)

Is Erickson Transport out of Springfield Mo still in business--hauled milk and food grade products .

Back in the 60's there used to be a Mcbride milk tank operation that ran out of upstate NY on route 17 thru Liberty they were in business for a long time.

In checking about Erickson I found a whole list of tank operations that were in business in 2000 some of which may no longer operate.   I noticed Gully Transportation on that list -- not aware that they had a tank operation.

California Milk  Transport(CMT)---Gone a long time-back in the 50's had a big Barn where they parked their equipment In Paramount CA which at the time was the heart of the dairy producing industry in Southern CA. Used 2 axle Chevy's pulling tandem axle milk tanks. Friend of mine started with them after he got out of Army(Korean War) and eventually moved to Calif. Milk Producers now California Dairies now retired.

What did they operate?



I know until recently there was a Don Ward, in CO. that pulled mainly bulk tanks. red/black kw's. They were bought out i believe


was there also a ward with connections to DSI; with the yellow/blue freightliners that sold to trimac? or am i just imagining things?

Pat, it was Don Ward I was thinking of. I lived in Colo until 1993 and remember that company. Still can't recall name of the Canon City company. Their color was/is yellow I think and maybe hauled bulk stuff, like cement maybe?
