    Triple Crown .

    they were owned by Norfolk Southern and used the “roadrailers”

    As an O/O with them in the 90s I made good money. Was home almost every night.

    only a railroad could figure out a way to lose money using the roadrailer trailers .

    I wish BillyBob’s Alligator Eatery were still in business. I don’t know? Maybe they are?
    Their drivers kept disappearing.

    Wow. I used to work for Cowan in the early 90's and they were merged with Ty Pruitt.

    I started driving in 1990 as a container hauler at Port East Transfer. Lol Ed Hale.

    Brings back so many memories.

    I lived in Baltimore MD from 1969 to 1998.

    I remember George Transfer!

    That's some old school stuff for sure.

    Chemical Leaman Tank Lines out of Baltimore Maryland in the 90's!

    I was a lowly container hauler wishing I'd worked there.
