well after 4 weeks of dropping the order and the deposit, I found out today my build date is next Tuesday. I was wondering, based on past experience, if anyone had a fairly accurate estimate on delivery. I am out in AZ, so that may be different than others closer to the plant. The dealer is saying 45-55 days after it's built... (that seems like its too long)

Sincerely,

A very anxious buyer...

Congrats on getting you build date so quick .
I would think no more than 2 to 4 weeks at most. How about some details on what you ordered ?

I don't understand the long transit times for these cars. Where do they go after they leave the plant? I live in MO, and was quoted up to 4 weeks. That's ridiculous.

There are a lot of variables but I would say 4 to 6 weeks.

They wait at the mixing station for a "full" railcar....so this is a few days delay. The railcar may sit at a station waiting for some "other" item to be unloaded for hours at a time...and they make many stops.

Back in the early days they had to go to striping after leaving the main plant...but I think they do that in the same plant now...or at least some of the cars are striped in the main plant.

Mine was built on Oct 26 06 and I picked it up at the dealer Nov 16 ,06. That was only 21 days so it is possible.
Mine was built Nov. 21st 2006, I took delivery on Jan 3, 2007...so 6 weeks is also possible. It's all over the place...I was caught in the e-brake quality hold issue.

Mine was built on January 2, 2008 and picked it up Feb, 14th, 2008. So about 6 weeks. My original delivery week was the 16th of January. So you can see that it was pushed back 3-4 weeks. Mine was shipped out on the 29th so it took over 2 weeks transit time.

It will get to you soon enough. We all have gone through it. Hang in there.
