    Jim only stayed at Central about 6 months. Word is that after running the show all those years he couldn't get used to working for someone else. I was told he left on good terms. Just wasn't a good fit. Very few old Alvan people, if any, left at Central. I think he is just doing real estate stuff. Still has some of the old Alvan terminals.

    Good to see some of us still get on here. Had 11 yrs. linehaul out of Ft. Wayne. I stayed in the business and still hear comments that Alvan was a damn bunch of dedicated people. Best job I've had--but I'm only 59. Could go on and on about final management but I won't. You 2 have a good holiday season with your families. Good luck to you.

    Randy Maggot(TM-tol) and Terry?(TM--Col) both work for Vitran now. Randy is in DET and Terry is in Col. Mark Leslie and his wife bought a bar a couple of blocks from Ohio State campus. Estes bought the So. Bend, Grand Rapids, Ft. Wayne and Mesick terminals. Maybe one other one-not sure. DET? Good to see you still check in now and then, ALVAN.

    Yes Detroit (Romulus) bought by Estes. You guys really had a place to be proud of there. Nice big yard and shop. Its a pleasure going there.

    Thanks, Buzzbeez, it was a nice yard. Just a quick correction, though. Estes didn't take the Grand Rapids term. P-Jax/Vitran took it over. REALLY has went downhill. Doors, dockplates--what a pit now. Safe ride.
