Estes City Trailer

This might not be anything new to some, but after taking this shot, it occurred to me that I don't think I've ever seen a single axle  P&D trailer from them in my area.  Any time they've had a short s/a trailer, it always seemed to be a road pup.  Taken last May, I-376 Pittsburgh.

Nice catch. Not surprising to see them branch out, I assume single power axle cab's will be next. I see them with other LTL carriers a lot, but they are mostly Old Dominion and Wilson in my area. Straight trucks are starting to become more frequent as well. I'm sure they were getting complaints from drivers trying to squeeze 53' and 48' into tight spaces.

Estes has been running single axle line tractors for years.

Edit: Misread the post. Yeah I see single line axle tractors from time to time, but mostly OTR with pup doubles.

Wonder if that's a 33' pup they converted after the push for longer trailers didn't work out? Regardless, it seems many carriers are purchasing these 34'-40' city trailers. ABF, YRC, and Old Dominion are just a few.
The foot turned to the horse, the horse to the carriage, the carriage to the train, and the train to the truck.
