I just called the 800# and it told me that my Bird was shipped by railcar on the 23'ed. does anyone know how long it would take a train to get fron Wixom to York Pa. by rail. We have a rail head here in York for cars about 1/2 mile from my dealer. Called the salesman but he won't be in till 1pm. Am starting to get breathless.

Sorry, thought that was inadvertant. Mine was on the railcar about 4 days as I remember, going to Jax, FL, I would hope yours would be half that.
 
jodrod, we'll have to try and meet up in the near future. We'er heading for Sebring eather in Feb. or the beginning of Mar. Don't know for sure right now but will let you know.

From my experience selling cars, they normally got to the dealership about 2 weeks after that were put on the railcars.

"Blue on Blue Prem. Ordered in Jan. 7of12 NOW 4of12"

Change to "Blue on Blue Prem. Bird almost in hand"

After reading Tbird's post I started thinking, my car was caught up in the quality hold for the fan problem and arrived a month after the ETA date, it may have been expidited.
 
jodrod not sure what is going on here but yes I was 7 of 12 and now 4 of 12. Don't know why but that is the way it worked out. There was NO change on order was Blue on Blue and still is. I know you have a lot on your mind.

I was just saying that in the signature portion where you have the info on the color and the allotment numbers you should change the allotment numbers to "Bird almost in hand" now that it is almost here.

The post following was to clarify what happened with my car with 4 days on rail and Tbirds comment that it is about 2 weeks on rail. They may have hurried mine up since it was already one month late.
 
Just talked to my salesman and informed me that they Closed the railhead in York. They now get them thru eather Baltimore or Pittsburg. Hope mine comes thru Baltimore sence it is only 50 miles away. He says by that it should be in eather Sat. or Mon. Stillll Holding my breath. It's been over a year now, can't wait.

Gobird, It can take anyhwhere from 4 days to 2 weeks. I realize that is not an exact answer, but it's the way it's going. It depends on how crowded the rail head is and how many cars are going to the dealership. I have one with an ETA of Jan 23, and no bird as of Jan 25 4:30pm. It arrived at the ramp on Jan 17. If you've waited a year a couple days shouldn't hurt, but I know it does, like waiting on a baby. John
 
Birdforwife, Yes it seems like an enternity, but what is a few extra days. A life time right Now!!!! Live Long and Prosper
