Well, I just finished my tabulations. The Benicia destinations that have a Grand Island update took: 2d16 3d7 2d5 2d12 2d9 2d14 2d10 (where XdY means X days and Y hours). So roughly speaking typically about 2 days 12 hours until they hit Benicia.

Since ours left Grand Island 11/04 4:55 AM EST, that puts them arriving in Benicia around wednesday at 2pm PST. The real "trigger" is the Roseville, CA update when/if that happens because that's a very consistent 2-2.5hrs from arriving in Benicia. Depending on how I feel (health is a bit of a concern for me) and how things are going at work, I was considering riding up to Benicia and taking some photos as it pulls in. Though that's a tight window and would depend heavily on whether Willx was available to do frequent checks around that time because Benicia is over an hour from me, which doesn't leave a lot of room to get there in time. If I can't make it, and you feel adventurous, please be my guest!

I'd also love to see it actually get unloaded, but the time on that seems harder to predict. From arrival until they're unloaded took: 0d20 0d21 1d3 0d20 0d11 1d9 1d14 1d15. So anywhere from 11 hours to 39 hours. That's almost as big as a Comcast service window. So it would probably be hard to know exactly when to be there for the unloading.

But again, if you want to try - I sure wouldn't complain!
I'm envious, not only did you leave me in the dust, you were right by my town this morning and will be out of the state by mid afternoon while I'll still sit in some yard in IL. At this pace, you'll be taking delivery well ahead of me and I'll just have to live vicariously though you guys for a few more days...

Yeah, that's a bummer that you're still hanging out in IL. Hopefully our SFUs at least waved toward Lincoln as they roared on through spreading rainbows and skittles to all around.

Guess skik will be the first of our initial train group to get a diesel Jeep home
Hard to say, but could be. Based on historical data, we should be in Cheyenne close to midnight tonight (EST). I expect that's where Skik will depart from our merry band and head south. So I guess it depends how long it takes for him to hop a new train in Cheyenne.

And of course it also depends on how quickly each of the yards unloads. Some yards can take many days to unload based on the historical MOTS data.

But the race is definitely on!

Willx,

Don't want to be a pest with my inquiries, but I have to ask: Is the following pattern typical?

Staged For Shipment 10/29/2013 03:50 PM EDT Avi - Vls Charlevoix Yard, MI
In Bay At Facility 11/01/2013 06:41 PM EDT Detroit Jefferson Assembly, MI
Departed Facility 11/03/2013 10:41 AM EST Avi - Vls Charlevoix Yard, MI
In Bay At Facility 11/03/2013 07:39 PM EST Detroit Jefferson Assembly, MI

How can I end up in bay at Jefferson, presumably to catch a train, then end up departing Charlevoix two days later for Jefferson? Is it musical chairs?

Last I knew there were trains that have routes to Oregon (e.g., Union Pacific and BN&SF). At this rate, looks to me like we'll miss the estimated delivery date--again. Oh well.

Like many other instead of actually working I obsessively refresh this and the order status page. I just looked at my dealers website, koons in Tysons corner va. Looks like they have 13 sfu in transit including mine. So...who else in here is heading to Tysons the minute they arrive?

But perhaps we should come up with a more manly design with some diesel flavor to it...

Well my Jeep was supposed to be at dealer by 6 today but I am guessing no news is bad news via MOTS... If it wasn't gone as of the 3:20PM update then there's no way a semi could drive it to Columbus by 6.... Maybe tomorrow I guess?

I'm not ashamed to say that I bought diesel brand under wear over the weekend. In grey to match my Jeep. Maybe I went too far.
