Freight line from Terre Haute
« on: March 11, 2019, 04:49:49 PM »
Does anybody remember a freight company from Terre Haute?
When I was a kid about 60 years ago I remember seeing their trucks on the PA turnpike. IIRC the trailers were lettered on the front. Maybe in red? Terre Haute seemed so far away and I always looked for those trucks. Slept since then though. :-\

Yeah ; I had similar feelings about trucking companies that seemed to be from so far away about 60 years ago too.

Concur. Had to have been EASTERN EXPRESS (EETH), Home Office Terre Haute.
Your writer been there, done that. Side note of Misc info. Before the huge move
by "Corn Flakes" (CFWY) East of Chicago, it wanted a buy of EETH in the worst
way. The story didn't play out that way...

Yeah I believe it was Eastern Express. The NEMF thread and seeing Shevell Group owned Eastern Freightways got me thinking but I knew that wasn't the one.
Thanks!
