    Need to get your rail car number from your dealer to track what junction point it’s at.

    I asked him yesterday but said it would be Monday before he could give me any information. In which case I’ll reach out Noah first thing tomorrow. Thank you.

    I was Rapid Red but called the dealer and changed after spending time in a friend's '19 ZR1 that was white with a black roof. A really clean combination.

    I expect that could have happened to almost any one of us under the right circumstances, E.

    Good choices though, either way so I'd say it's a win-win.

    This tells you what it means, but not where it is.

    Received at Junction Point
    The railcar/vehicle has been received by another railcar carrier at a rail junction point. The carrier name displays in parenthesis..

    Congrats again, Kristie!

    Looks like fkranger is the current record holder for shortest time from shipped to delivered at 4 days. The average on the few data points I have is about 12 days.

    Also looks like the October cars are running about twenty-eight days longer than the post-October cars.

    Average time in limbo since "Produced" for the October bunch is 43 days...the others are at 23.

    Average time from Released to Shipped is running between 3-4 days for both groups.

    And now you know the rest of the story...or not. <grin> Sure do miss listening to that guy.

    Out of boredom I have continued to try to track via railcar. When I call the automated number Earl provided and enter in the appropriate data I always get the same thing, gibberish. The car number my dealer provided is legit but the host site I call hasn't updated the railcar's location. I looked at various railway websites (as much as mine is supposed to be on Canadian National Railways) figuring I could register and track. They make it near impossible and expect you to be a customer and understand their lingo. I was able to register at Norfolk Southern's website and after a few days of waiting I was forwarded a user ID and password. They still make it difficult to log in and if you are successful you have to guess at much of the verbage. Google searches add to the confusion. After spending some time logged into Norfolk's site I had some limited success. I found a page that let me enter in my car number, ETTX801810. This popped up...

    I learned that ETTX is part of a railcar fleet operated by TTX from the list here. You may find yours here as well.
    http://trn.trains.com/railroads/abcs-of-railroading/2006/05/railroad-reporting-marks

    TTX says that...

    https://www.ttx.com/about/equipment/

    I don't know what the "L/E" heading stands for but apparently I'm L.:)
    Current location...I can't figure out what CFTNH.SC means but it shows in Missouri and that's where my dealer is so everything makes sense so far.
    "Last Event Code" of DFLC...I found one reference of "Departed from location." A poor acronym if correct.
    Date & Time...looks to be fairly current.
    Destination "VOLMIXCT, MO" stands for the Voltz mixing center or yard in Kansas City, MO.
    http://www.loadmatch.com/directory/company_detail.cfm?companyID=6139
    Train 181D307...can't find anything on the train itself.

    In essence, a bit complicated. I'll keep checking as I'm trying hard to not bother my dealer to death.

    E: Sounds like you've done a whole lot more than just your homework...WOW. That's some digging, dude.

    My guess is, the major problem is security of RR info after 9/11, just like the power grid, Internet lines, etc., all beefed up. No surprise they're coding to prevent untrained eyes from knowing.

    Hope it gets there soon though...

    I had the same sense about security throughout. Every rail company makes it a bit of a struggle.

    Actually I feel kind of relived that the tracking system no longer works, I wasn't looking forward to getting up every couple of hours to track my car. It made me very unpopular around the house.:frown:

    Under 10 days until the scheduled 12/16 build date, I wonder if I will get pushed back again. Anything new maybe Snoopy you notice?

    There were about 20+ VINs the went into Sent to Plant this weekend, so I think your good to go.
    At this time, there are 46 cars with a status of "In Production" "Sent to Plant".
