Based out of Calgary, Alberta
Bicknell bought out B-Line Express from Calgary in '80 or '81 to get to the West Coast, but bit off more than they could chew. In '84, they were absorbed by Imperial Roadways, who prior to that had interlined their Alta. an BC. freight through Bicknell out of Winnipeg.

|This one happened out of Grenfell,Sask||A definite Excedrin headache.||These 9000 Whites had such a tiny cab on them that there wasn't much crush space before it was you getting crushed. The back of the jump seat in these things was bolted to the back wall, and the seat portion was spring-loaded so that it was flipped up too. You had to pull it down to sit on it.|
