My Grandpa worked for them at the Wisconsin Rapids terminal.  Love to see anything from C.W. and always looking for anything to add to my collection. There are some old trailer's from C.W. used for storage around the Appleton area.

Here ya go.  Sorry for the poor quality but this was as good as I could clean them up.  I believe these were taken in 1969.  These were new road units recently delivered to Ft Wayne at the time.

I thought CW Transport went under in the early-mid 1980s (posted here FF before 80).  My dad drove for Gordons Transport and they went out in 4/83.  I believe CW quickly moved into the local Gordons terminal for a short spell before they faded into history.

CW closed down in early 1988.
