    Just thought I would start this thread to see if there was any interest on giving updates to what ex CFers have been doing.
    I worked for CF out of Mt Pocono and then Carlisle. I worked the dock,yard and was a road driver for a while. After closing I went on to work for Roadway out of Tannersville Pa. When they closed I transferred to New Brunswick NJ. When Yellow and Roadway merged I was laid off. 2009 went to work for NFI out of Bath Pa.Just left them in Sept 2013 and went to work for KEHE Dist out of Breiningsville Pa.
    Anyone who reads this please update your status.
    My name is Harry anyone who who worked at POP or CLP will remember me
    Thanks and Happy Holidays.

    My father Charlie Nelson worked at CF from 1966-1981. He was a Diesel mechanic. However, we lost him due to Lung Cancer in 2012. The more boards I look on, the more I'm noticing that other men and women passed away from lung Cancer. Odd!!!

    Worked as a city driver for CF from 1981 till the close in 2002. Probably the best job I ever had. All in all some of the best people around. Went to work at Yellow after the shutdown at CF and things were good for about 4 years. Left and went to a small operation that paid into the pension for 3 years then took my retirement. Still miss the old days at CF.

    I remember meeting you in upstate NY, probably Buffalo or Rochester. You gave me a business card with your truck on it, sill have it on my refrigerator.
    I retired from New Penn but also did my time at CF in PHL.
    Stay safe and keep that old CF stuff alive.
