I think that's why we see several days in Detroit yards before it starts moving out of state. Unless you are the last car on the train being built, and then you see an almost immediate hookup and then move out of Michigan.
I am sure mine is moving this way. Mine does not show that it was loaded on a railcar at any point, and it is not even in Detroit anymore, it is in Toledo, OH. Like I said, just Weird.
It would have been perfect, for me, if it had arrived today per the ETA. I am now guessing by the end of next week. That is week number 14.

Gunny, Yours is moving, it is on the way, more than halfway to Chicago.

Mine, well, mine is not.

Re: Getting impatient.......

Just departed Oakwood, which is by the Ford Plant. But mnow it is moving - out of the cluster [ ] of Detroit rail yards on the journey!

Keep the faith, CFarer - you can still win this!

Did you get the call from the dealer? Did you pick up the new Trailhawk?

Congratulations, hope you will be having offroad fun now with that.

That is about the normal delivery on a Cherokee.

Your's should not be near Toledo at all

But looks like there is another Jeep CFarer for a Dodge Dart ... they would not mix entries would they

You and Gunny hang in there ... you're almost there!
