Hey rex it's the same sad story here in Chicago too. I hardly see any of the new ones too. Maybe I'm greedy and all I want to see is the new ones because I'm in love with them just like the containers. There are at least 4,400 new trailers so hopefully they will "fan out" and travel the country. I was in St. Louis this past weekend and saw basically zero down there too. I did see though a good chunk of the containers at the Norfolk Southern and BNSF.


Since there few of those when compared to the old livery ones.......i got to always carry a camera........

swift#1 I guess that makes sense about Swift getting rid of the M S Carriers trailers before the older Swift ones. Actually though I like the M S ones. I just only want to see the new trailers and nothing else from Swift except for the containers. I'm just being greedy because I like the new ones so much.  :|
I know what u mean,its not easy getting rid of that many old trls in one year...we were only supposed to get 2300 new trls but they bought more 8-)

Hi swift,  yeah that 085002 number that you gave me means that there are at least 4,400 trailers with the new logo.  Also I was just wondering (for fun) when a trailer is picked up at Wabash National where does it go? The reason I'm asking is because I remember last December there were a pretty good amount of new trailers at the terminal in Manteno. There were at least 50 new trailers crammed in there. They practically took up the whole lot. Also too is Swift going to keep adding new trailers this year or are they pretty much done for now? Thank you.
They usually have drivers bobtail in from the closest terminal to wabash and take them to a customer that the driver has to go to...no specific place..when i went to pick up one i took it all the way back to ny..I'll have to ask the eastcoast manager if were getting more..I'll let You know :wink:
