I'm digging the shots Greg. Caught a Columbia today on my way to work but couldn't get a good photo op. Sure beats seeing the typical 20 year old Pinnacle's I typically see around here.
There’s plenty of those gliders around. You’ll get your chance soon enough!

Great photos Greg! Any reason they are suddenly getting rid of the old equipment? I imagine it was probably just getting tired but just curious, no worries if you can't answer.

I really don’t know Jon. They’ve gotten a lot of new trucks both for NEMF and Eastern. Eastern Freightways is 100% E-Log now so maybe they’re prepping NEMF for the same thing.

Some photos from the last few months. With low light and sudden slowing of freight, I don't have a ton of photos to share. The Pinnacles with trailers are at Wawa. The rest are all in the yard. There aren't a lot of 8100s left. A lot of the old stuff is gone because it's getting hard to get parts for it. The White/GMC is the oldest tractor in the yard and is a spare.

Hi Greg. Nice to see that you are still here at Hanks. Are you able to drive much at your part time gig?

Yes I’m still here. Posting photos isn’t as easy with an old computer and Slickpic, but I make the time. I’m only driving forklifts right now on Friday nights. I was told if they let me I could hostle trailers but there hasn’t been a need. Maybe they’ll let me do a Saturday straight truck job in the future.

Are the Mack U & R models all gone now Greg? ???
Yes. I haven’t seen one in years over here. All the Fords are gone too. Other than the White/GMC, the oldest tractors are Mack CHs and the 4 International 8100s which are also on the way out.

   So that's where 94011 went!  That was domiciled in Meriden CT for many years and suddenly disappeared a few months ago.  Thanks for posting Greg.

Yes it showed up in the fall! Good to know a little about where it came from Mike.

That’s just the logo they’re putting on the new straight trucks Ray. They mostly use them for residential deliveries but can deliver or pickup anywhere like all the other freight carriers.

     Great pics Greg, thanks for posting.  Volvo #30124 is ex-Jevic by the way.

Thanks Mike! So did the other Volvo’s come from another fleet or did NEMF buy them new? Nobody knows a whole lot about the equipment from who I talk to there.

     Greg, the other Volvo you pictured #91090 was purchased new in 2006.  In an earlier post you pictured Volvo sleeper #95168 which was purchased new at the same time. I believe they purchased a total of about 250 Volvos in 2006 to load up on pre-2007 emissions engines.  About 50 of those went to Eastern and the rest were NEMF.
