    The following pictures show the mighty terminal it once was, in disrepair and being dismantled in others.

    Thanks for posting pictures, definently sad to see pictures of former CF terminals in such run down condition...

    I was at a delivery the other day and ran into a guy who used to be a dispatcher at CF up in Norfolk, VA...

    Sure is sad to see the terminal like that.I started running in and out of there in March of 1978. The funniest thing that I seen coming into that gate was Wolf Man who ran out of Milwaukee.He was routed off of the Old Exit10 with a set of triples.Instead of breaking them down he ran all the way into the terminal with them.

    That sounds like something Wolf Man would do.

    I work at Yellow. When we merge with Roadway I will have to find a new job, at least for a while.
