    So I'm guessing the new tractors for YRC will be white, It would've been nicer if they kept them the orange and blue. And that's answers my question about our sleeper trucks

    Yep. It's a Cascadia and rides like a Caddy. Great storage also. I'll post some more pics later on. Left Phoenix this morning after they put us in bed at hotel for 7 hrs waiting for a load.

    That's like one of the first tractors I drive when I started there in 99. Later on we got rid of them in Philly but you could go anywhere in that thing. Looked like an ### running up i95 in it though. If you had one with power steering you had some seniority.

    mines an old volvo with the orange and blue. pulls very nice and plenty of power since its an old highway unit. We got a sterling as well which I would like to use but i dont have the senority. And I know about what you said about power steering. A friend of mine worked for Roadway express or 19 years as a dock worker, and said he would see in his begining years that drivers would come and go because of trucks with no power steering. He seems to say Roadway was a better company, I hear the guys from Yellow say the opposite, but I will never know being I work for YRC.

    One of the old roadway guys who trained me drove one of those, he loved it because it was very manueverable and it had a bench to lie down on during lunch time.

    This pic was just taken by me in Tucumcari, NM. Stopped for fuel, food, and shift change. Should get back to the windy city in 22 hours then leave right back out to go to Salt Lake.
