Caught this Brand new Sams Club Tri-dem Reefer coming into Hermiston 2 weeks ago.   It apears to be the same specs as the Tri-dem Wal-Mart Reefers.

this is pretty much what we see in units operated by Wal-Mart Transportation LLC in Southern Calif.  in fact another just like it came by two pics later but this turned out a better shot ---southbound on I 605

Like in other places we see their trailers pulled by carriers such as Swift which I have seen and posted on other threads.

I haven't seen a WAL-MART 387 in this thread, so I'll throw this one up that I caught at the Joplin Petro...I've seen it twice in this area and the turnpike in Oklahoma, pretty close to Joplin...

Yeah, real nice catch on the 387, Eric! I bet there aren't too many of those around!

WOW Eric,  great catch,  I never knew they had any 387's,  I read somehwere the only reason they made a diecast 387 was because DCP didnt make a 386.

Saw these two last week coming across the bridge into Pittsburgh.  Thought I'd get a good two-fer shot, but the Prostar sprinted ahead.

No, there appearently were, or are, one or two 387s at the DC that had those models made, not that I can remember which one it was. That's what I heard at least.
