    I have a collection of routing guides from the Northeast that is in pretty good condition. I am offering them free for the shipping charges, which should be $15.00 or less.

    They range from late 1970's to 1993 or so, companies as follows:

    A. Duie Pyle, 1984 and two with no dates
    Van Brunt, no date
    Big R 1993
    CCX 1993
    New Penn 1983
    St. J's 1976
    Ward date unknown
    Preston one 1998 and one older with no date
    APA no date
    Holmes no date
    Tose-Fowler no date
    Vallerie 1986
    Campbell's no date
    Helms 1982

    PM for details.

    Yes, Sun Oil.

    Sun also owned Milne out west, Standard down south, Jones Truck Lines midwest and for a while had a company called Scheduled Trucking. Scheduled used long haul owner ops (Billy Big Rigger outlaw type o/op's) to supposedly link all of the companies together. Scheduled did not work out well and closed up when Sun started using the rails instead. Milne folded first, then Jones fell, then Standard and lastly St. J died in June of '93.

    If I remember right Sun called this system SunPath or something like that.

    that is what i thought.

    when i saw the list of companies, i really do remember Valerie, St. J., Branch, and a few others,. seems like my tiny state had them all.

    i seemed to remember i was told by a trucker, way back when, that indeed, Sunoco, owned (at the very least) St. J.

    my question(s) would be, did Sunoco always own them, or bought them out at a later time in St J's life..?????

    did Sunoco sell them due to the deregulation days, or "other reasons"...

    thanks in advance...!!!!!

    When I worked for Saint Johnsbury in the mid 60's I thought they were owned by a holding company?

    I used to have a bunch of those routing company guid books ABFer,but I tossed them out.
    As when the companies went bankrupt they were pretty much worthless.
    However after so many years have passed they may have been worth something?
    However only to someone who might want them.

    It appears as thought they are worthless and that nobody wants them. Not until after they've been thrown out anyway, we know how that goes.
