That is a great recipe for slow shipping.
VOTS wasn't accurate for the GC launch either. They only updated it once a day, so before you would get a second update the car was finished.
AS for filling train cars, that shouldn't be a problem. But these trains don't travel around the country with just Jeeps on board. Some stops they make are to pick up other rail cars, that could be carrying anything. Or, the Jeep cars are unhooked to be linked to other trains.
You might see an entry "engine arrived". Jeep could have all their cars loaded, but until the engine arrives it isn't going anywhere.
But they will get there, and most will be in good shape.
