My father sent me this fresh from the factory will be headed your way soon.

Looks a lot better than when we pull new Estes equipment!

Green and Gold (yellow) are the official colors of the Green Bay Packers! Go Packers!

Color co-ordination wasn't in the plans years ago when Conway [ now XPO ] was 5 individual freight companies when they started to interchange with each other. Conway Eastern had red/orange graphics, Conway Central was brown/orange, Conway Western was navy blue/orange, Conway Southwest was navy blue/lime green and Conway Southern Express was med blue/light blue. Then they became Conway Transportation and colors were dark grey/light grey and finally Conway Freight and back to med blue/light blue. Now they are XPO and red/black. What a rainbow.

My dad was at Con-Way for all that, he traded XPO red for OD green.

Hey Bobcat Bob,

Regardless of the color I think your Dad did great by going to OD from Conway. At my 14 years with Conway I was at the Orlando, Fl. terminal as a Driver Trainer but it sure has changed for the worse since I retired from Conway in 2004. OD is a class act bar none.

Terminal:

A facility where trucking companies operate out of, or their "home base" if you will. A lot of major companies have multiple terminals around the country which usually consist of the main office building, a drop lot for trailers, and sometimes a repair shop and wash facilities.
