Railcar Shortage?

Really/ I guess so as I start watching some of the others in the tracking area and see since the 14th or so there has been a stoppage of sorts in shipping again. Anyone have any insight as to what might be going on?

Gary,
I sent you a PM regarding this.

Re: Railcar Shortage?

Below is a link to an article about the railcar shortage, since railways put about half their fleet into storage when the auto market crapped out in 2009. Some car carriers are back out of storage, but the rail car shortage remains. It has been causing delivery delays for the past few months.

Here is a link, but access is sometimes limited to members of the AutoNews site (cookies required):

Candy Girl,

I only mentioned things noted in the article just posted by Cherodude.
I waited more than 3 months for my Jeep so I shared your angst. I wish you well.

Don

I know how you feel Candy Girl! The Jeep that I ordered on January 18 has been sitting in a Detroit yard since March 19! Thank goodness I found one locally.

Re: Railcar Shortage?

Don and Joe, this is really getting frustrating! I am hoping that I only have to wait until the end of May! I am afraid it may go longer! I am going to call my dealer the second week of May. I thought that maybe because of the holiday, things may be backed up, but I did notice an Allied truck carrying Fords. Maybe they have settled their differences. I appreciate your sympathies. I will keep you posted. Thanks!
