    I always liked pulling the old yellow Atlas trailers, made for an interesting color combo.

    Have to agree with ya Mr. Beam was a great guy and company to work for. Been to the museum ,that's where he started out of the old gas station. But after he passed and Mr. Younger stepped down the bean counters came in and kinda went down hill from there. I got to drive the "QUALITY set that had all the employes names on the trl's that were involved in that deal. Ran the triples lane until they moved it over to Gary. stayed up here in my area end my time with them on the Carlisle bid which when I started ran it on the extra board. YEP good time good people thanks for asking stay safe and enjoy retirement

    I remember reading help wanted adds in the Detroit News when Roadway was opening up their Toledo breakbulk in the mid seventies. I left southeastern Michigan in 1981.
