    None at my location. Air drivers always shuttle out.

    That’s the first time I’ve ever seen one, from searching TP60 they’ve been around forever but must be regional and center specific.

    This one is in the heart of Seziure World in the OC, not exactly an industrial area, so I’m still surprised. Guess all the grannies discovered Amazon finally... or maybe we are the grannies now :-/.

  10. We used to have them here, not sure what happened to them. But all if the new package cars are set up for a trailer hitch.

    Try delivering EAM's out in the country, dragging that box.

    At a 300 car center, we use 2-3 TP60s
    You get a little extra per hour pulling one.

    I've used the TP60 quite a few times. Mostly to shuttle to satellite drivers.

    They drive a biplane with wheels to every stop.

    While that is funny, I am serious. Any air, any EAM, was the sole responsibility of the driver for the route where that stop was located. I have had 1 EAM destroy my entire day.

    I was told we get feeder rate if you have to pull one in my area. I thought they got paid the same though.

    175 route, 2 center building. We send a few guys out daily with them. During peak I towed one daily. Drop it off in a parking lot first thing in the morning, go empty the truck. Me and my hopper would then reload my truck and empty it again. Honestly, it was nice. Could walk thru the truck all day. The trailer was half filled with my stuff and one other route. Luckily I was usually the second one to get there so I didn't have to sort thru the disaster!!
