Re: Getting impatient.......

That is unusually quick for unload.

I had it 'Placed at Industry' at 4:09 PM CDT and it usually takes 12 - 20 hours for unload. I must have caught it right at the end (or front) of the string of rail-cars to be unloaded. UP now reports that rail-car as 'empty' and 'Released for Movement' at 7:10 PM CDT.

Typically it is 2 - 4 days after unloading for it to be loaded onto a truck for delivery to a dealer. This has REALLY been moving fast, so it could be shorter than average. It just left the Detroit Yards at 12:15 PM last Friday! 3 days+ to be 'Wheels Down' in Houston? Whoda thunk it? We'll just have to see....

(think I can pull out a win under the wire?)

Re: Getting impatient.......

That's a non-starter, Mr_Taz - I can't get to Houston to pick mine up until the 8th....

Indigo Blue / Jeep Brown

Block heater was not ordered but dealer is throwing in the cable, so in a way yes, and in a way no.
I did not get the appearance group, chrome group or CD.

But I got you beat now, well maybe. Should be at dealer tomorrow.

Well I have the cameras, just wish I knew how to use them.
Go Canon 5dIII.

Re: Getting impatient.......

Taz, now that winter is mostly over, supposed to snow tonight, the vehicles are moving quicker. You will have yours in no time, no time at all.

Re: Getting impatient.......

Well my Trailhawk has finally departed Salem, IL. Only took about 36 hours to catch a Union Pacific train at the interchange.

Re: Getting impatient.......

Good for you, CFarer! (Remember I told you long ago.....)

Happy for you - think of me as you're enjoying it. At least for 5 or 10 minutes, OK?

Glad it is there for you, Craig!
