Shipping: rail or truck?

Hey guys

I was under the impression my Jeep would be shipped by rail from Toledo to Baltimore/Annapolis area. My dealer said they arrive at a local train station.

Well, check out MOTS below. According to it, the Jeep is being shipped on a truck to the dealer. Normal? Inaccurate? Thoughts?

Re: Shipping: rail or truck?

Somebody took your car to pick up lunch and missed the train. Check for fast food wrappers in the back seat.

Did you alert your dealer to have his prep team standing by?

I think truck would be better. On the train your car will get rail dust on it that can be a bitch on your finish if not removed quickly.

Re: Shipping: rail or truck?

I'm surprised it is not delivered yet, but I don't know how the process works. Departed Toledo Wednesday 5:20 pm , I live 8 hours away in Maryland. They probably stop a few times to drop off cars. But apparently they may go in less than a straight line, because it's Saturday and no Jeep. Maybe weather-related...we have a snow/ice event coming today...coming from the west!
