    1) When did the Barstow(YRC) BB close? What took its place?

    2)When did the Adelanto (RDWY) BB get shuttered? What took its place?

    Thanks in advance--my memory is shot

    Somewhere around 2000.
    Adelanto still has a P & D operation.
    Barstow is still empty and for sale.
    There was a period of transition from Adelanto to Bloomington, when Roadway had a BB in San Bernardino.

    I took the pictures in February of 2014. Seems to me the garage area was being used by a repair facility.

    Yellow closed the Barstow breakbulk around 2001 and moved to the San Bernardino breakbulk. About a year later Roadway closed the Adelanto breakbulk and moved to the Bloomington breakbulk. Both companies claim that the move was necessary because BNSF would no longer accommodate them out of the Barstow Intermodal facility.
    Since the merge in 2009 YRC was using Bloomington as the breakbulk. In 2010 the breakbulk was moved to the San Bernardino facility. Around 2014 they moved back to the Bloomington facility where they still operate now.
    Barstow and San Bernardino yards aren't being used by YRC but we still run a small P&D operation out of the Adelanto yard.

    I don’t know what it is about pictures of closed terminals, but they give me a real eerie feeling.

    if memory serves me correct BNSF took the property in Barstow in a trade with YFS for property down in the LA basin.
