    I think you are referring to ” LOUISE’S DINER ” I -78 EXIT 13. When “TrashCan” went out, he went to work for Red Star Lines. After that, he went to work for “Buster Brown” “UPS”. Then he landed at “Big O” Overnite, now UPS Freight. He has since moved on from there to who knows where? Hope this helped.

    I see Estes all over the place, they are not out of business. Unless they were purchased by another company that just left the trucks and trailers as they were at the time of purchase.

    I still see Estes trucks here in Indiana at least. Same colors. Yellow with red wheels. Usually newer international day cabs if I recall.
