The CSX railcar broke down.
I ordered my Sport on 8/15 and have been tracking the build and shipping. So while tracking the railcar thru UP and CSX it gets to Battle Creek Michigan and goes no further. It sits 85 miles from my house and 145 from Flat Rock Michigan where it would be unload for deliver to my dealer.
While checking my tracking information this morning and I notice the ETA went blank and the shipping date disappeared. What??? So I called my friendly dealer, he pulls up the visibility report and sure enough, CN indicates that the rail car broke down and tonight there it sits, going nowhere fast. :crying:

PS Here is a file photo of the broken railcar. It's amazing what you can find on the Internet.

We’ll the rail car finally made it to Flat Rock this morning. The rail car breaking down added 7 days to the delivery date. No ETA yet. Based some of the other rail shipping stories on other forums, an additional week wait is not so bad.
