    Nashville, Tn is now a FEDEX Freight terminal. In a way CF still lives on there. We have a few Freightliner trucks in our fleet and CF was the company that started Freightliner. So in away CF will live on at many trucking companies.

    I went down Layton Ave. today. The old CW terminal is gone, but the shop behind it still stands. Brandt Truck Line is in the Slinger terminal. Con-Way is in the Sheboygan terminal. FedEx Freight is in Madison, and a moving company in Waukesha.

    The soccer stadium is at 71st and Harlem....Conway bought the one on Cicero. Or CF gave it to them...most likely the latter.. I was at both in the late 80`s with guys like Joe Balestri, Bobby K , Turkey legs just to name a few

    The Cedar Rapids IA bldg. on J street was recently sold to local buiding contractor. Dayton Freight has been leasing the west end 1/2 of the buiding, the other 1/2 has been used by two local companies.The new landlord has been very good about fixing things inside to DFL wants.Which is good, the sad part is Dayton just bought the Roadway property across I-380 just a few weeks ago. O well its better to own anyway,give more hope to customers and employee's that the company is commited to an area. Take from me,been there done that. I will never re-locate for any company that does not own the property that I plan too work out of.

    The Portland terminal @ 21st and Riverside is occupied by Central Transport. The shop and Fuel island still have for sale or lease sign on it. All the CF signs are there. If you didn't know it you would think they are still operating there except for the yellow trailers.

    The Vancouver, WA headquarters office is now the home to SoloFlex. Six months before they went under I was there for a job interview. It was for a fuel purchasing agent. I thought it would have been great to work 2 miles from home and I was pretty hot and bothered to go to work for CF. Now, I guess I should be glad I didn't get it.

    The PHL Terminal or Philadelphia is now a flea market on the dock on Wharton Street, the lot is used by the University of Pennsylvania(Penn) for off campus parking. Sign is still on top of building. Delanco,N.J. is empty Pjax was in there for a while before retreating back to Spring City,P.A. and the Bellmawr,N.J. facility formely known as Camden is used by the postal service as an overflow wharehouse, offices etc. The last two terminals were consolidated into PHL around 1999 when everything went across the bridge into PHL untill the end of when Labor Day 2002 came !!!!

    Clarksburg WV was shut down everything was moved back to Parkersburg WV. We took over Clarksburg (AF/FXF) it is now a heating and cooling contractor. And I think YRC has the Parkersburg term.

    The Lima, Ohio 8 door terminal, is still empty, never been used since the closing, All signs are on the fence and the building, Grass and tall weeds are moving in on the paved yard and it is sad. Oddly enough the yrc barn is out front.

    Man it seems like yesterday that I had to walk across that ole yard in Nashville that is now a Fed-Ex Terminal. I sure miss it, but it has been a true blessing for me to leave.
