Crosset used to run all whites in the 70s and 80s. They were dark green. Ran mostly in norteaster PA and New York. I think they are still in business running Freightliners.

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.

Erickson still operates out of Springfield and is part of QC.

Gundry was bought out by Leaseway and faded away when they sold off Refiners Transport in the 80's. I drove for Refiners in Pittsburgh at the time.We would get a lot of Gundry equipment to use. At the time they were running blue Macks speced out the same as ours by leaseway.

Hi Charlie,
I remember Rollo very well. I grew up in Hazlet and their yard was right down the road in Keyport. I used to see their B models and R models and loved the "winged" wheel logo on their shiny stainless tanks. There was also a Rollo Bus Company in Red Bank, I think there may have been a family connection. Does anybody remember Vanguard, another Jersey carrier? James J. Keating of Perth Amboy, acquired by Dana in the early 80's? Not sure if anyone mentioned Chemical Leaman. If anyone is interested I have some pics posted on the ATHS forums under 1970's trucking. I have just recently found this forum;great stuff!

GearUpJammer

 First of all welcome to Hanks.  :-) I remember the Rollo Bus Co. & always thought it was connected somehow to the tank lines. I've got vague recollections of Keating & Vangaurd; nothing that photos wouldn't help clear up.  :-D  Chemical Leaman had a yard over on Route 34 in Matawan where Mystic Tank Lines is now.

I'll check out the ATHS site for your pics; any chance you'll post 'em on here? Are you still a NJ resident? :?

Charlie,

Thanks for the welcome, I enjoy your photos. Unfortunately I don't have any photos of the tank lines I mentioned. I tried to post some photos but ran into technical difficulties :?And yes, I am still a resident of the Garden State.

What about a crygenic company outta of Texas call Big 3 Industries. Bought out by Liquid Air in the 80's which latter became Air Liquide and Air Liguide healthcare. Somewhere my father has pictures of the Big 3 trucks. Red Freightliner cabovers, couldnt miss them.
