    ANR and Hyman are listed but not much response. The rest you mentioned are not. Guess nobody cares. If you do, start a thread for them.

    If it wasn't for all those "HAS BEENS" as you call them, blazing the trail and making the sacrifices from the 30's up till the 90's, the people in the trucking industry (both union and non-union) would not be making what they are today, in spite of the current hard times. Have some respect for those who preceded us.

    What about BE-MAC. Closed doors maybe in 94 or 95. Midwest carrier. Odd paint schemes. Formerly had a terminal in Springfield, IL.

    I can think of a few more, I worked for H&W motor express in Chicago for 15 years. Also worked for O K trucking for a short stint. I do miss the old days, had a lot of fun and met a lot of good people.
