Train Departure 11/01/2013 06:17 AM EDT On Railcar - Louisville, KY

54 1/2 hrs sitting in Louisville and finally moving again. Good grief!

If my train had run like some of the better times logged from Detroit to Memphis, I'd be picking her up tomorrow. Trains must be government operated. It was not meant to be anyways...a more important commitment has come up.

On a tragic note: My friend and coworker's wife was one of the two Le Bonheur Children's Hospital flight nurses killed in the helicopter accident Oct 22 in TN. I'll be at the funeral tomorrow. What a tragedy. Carrie was a dedicated pediatric nurse and wonderful person. An SFU is not that important all things considered.

Departed Facility 10/31/2013 10:18 AM EDT Avi - Vls Java Yard, MI

That was my CRD and 24+ hours later it hasn't yet found a home whether that is back to another yard or being put on a train. I don't get it, my CRD lost on its way to another yard? lol
It is waiting in the Yard at New Boston to be loaded on a train. You will very likely see the train loading happening within 24 hours.

If any of you get concerned about this stuff just ask. Milous posts the factual information that is EXACT. We can also often tell some other things about what is happening but there is no date and time but just a theory. So yes, the info above is pretty good but based on what I see, that is what is happening without the official scanned time stamp yet.

So sorry to hear that. While all loss of life is tragic, I've always found it particularly poignant when the life is that of a first responder and/or rescue worker.

Deepest sympathies and best wishes to all involved.

That is sad and my sorrow to you and your friend / co-worker.

Yes, I live in the Heights.

Ironically, seconds after hitting the Submit Reply button on my last post, my phone rang. It was the dealer telling me he is pretty sure my Jeep will be delivered on November 15th! (MOTS still shows 11/11.. at least until the next dreaded update).

I think its not worth getting frustrated over. Its like the roll of the dice. Why do some people get stuck in a rail yard for a week awaiting departure? Why do some peoples like mine stay in D1 three times as long as others ? No one knows..

Is it normal to go from "staged for shipment" to "in bay at facility" or did the forget to load mine with skittles

As I had mentioned in a prior comment, they appear to be about 24 hours behind schedule. I do believe that yours will make New Boston by tomorrow sometime and will still be well ahead of the great majority of deliveries of CRD.

Neither Milous or I get to control the schedule and I completely understand what you are saying, but the simply move things in a way to get the most product out the door to the dealer as fast as humanly possible.

The only ones I have no good explanation for right now is CNY and Chivvalry, those two make no sense at all? I am completely in agreement with those guys being mad and I hope those get expedited on release!

Re: 2014 diesel production

Mine just has to travel 24 miles from the plant to my dealership in Troy! It is still showing an estimated delivery date of 11/11 on MOTS (Willx thinks it could be earlier, thanks for the hope and and answering all my PM's). It's just frustrating being in the SE MI area and so close to your unicorn but yet so far away.....

Re: 2014 diesel production

Maybe a little distraction to keep from obsessing over the MOTS data ...

Out of curiosity - now that they've KZ'd the CRDs, what, if anything, can be said about the cause of the delays?

We know one delay was the CARB hold.

We know one delay was the DEF tank.

We think we know that there was at least one reprogram required, probably (though not definitely) due to the CARB hold.

There was something that required a change on the line that Chevy talked about (builds after 9/26 had the "fix").

There was something that came up at the last minute, that required re-inspection of a number of CRDs.

I *think* there was also another issue that was found, that I *think* wasn't specific to the CRDs that cropped up very recently.

There was something, which seemed to be related to the reprogramming device. There were guesses that there was a connector problem, some also guessed that it was just a reference to the above-mentioned reprogram that was necessary. (Note though that those two are not mutually exclusive - there could have been a connector issue that was slowing down the reprogramming ...)

There were some allusions to a fender trim issue.

Any others I missed?

What about the delay(s) that caused ordering to get pushed out?

Inquiring minds want to know!

(*obviously* don't share anything that might get you in trouble)
