Option 3. I will say it's luck of the draw with talking to someone. Sometimes you get someone that gives you a ton of info and sometimes you get someone that is no help at all. When I would get one like that I would call once or twice a day until I got someone willing to look deeper. I know at one point there were some issues with them not wanting to give detailed info because some were actually going to rhw physical location to see theirs. Which is crazy. But there are some really nice ones there that love helping so don't give up.
Lol that’s nuts! I definitely wouldn’t go to the location, like what am I going to do when I get there?!! It’s not like you can take it home with you. If I just want to look at one, I would just go to my dealership and look at their demo. 😂 Thank you!! I’ll keep trying. I know it’s getting close, because 3 days ago it was at Jefferson City, MO according to my dealer, which is only like 6 hours from me.

Mine moved fast until it got to the truck transport lot then it sat there for like 2 weeks, it was 1 hour from me. I almost asked the dealer could I pay to have it towed on in...🤣 but as close as it was I didn't go up there, that would have just made me more impatient.

Exactly! I would want it right then knowing it was only several feet away.

So, I have had absolutely no luck at all with Ford Marketing and now I’m having issues getting location updates from my dealership. So, I have been trying to figure out what route UP may be taking by researching their routes toward Tennessee and looking at the AAR terminal guide to find out which facilities that Ford unloads at around my area. I’m thinking it unloads in Marion, AR, right outside Memphis, TN, and that it may be on a transport truck by now. I have also been looking at the “just arrived” BS on the Ford website for my dealership and looking up their vin numbers on the tracker site and all of their BS are arriving between 11-15 days at the most, even ones that delivered within the last few days, after the winter storm passed. I was worried that the storm would delay my transport, but it doesn’t seem to be affecting any of the ones that have been delivered to my dealership in the last 2-3 days. Currently, I’m on day 14 of transit, so I’m really hoping mine will be here in the next day or two. I would definitely think it would be here this week, even though my ETA is 3/9. Here is what I have so far (does not include my daily phone calls to Marketing):
-2/9 shipped via rail
-2/10 sticker date changed to 2/10 (probably crossed border?)
-2/12 dealer says BS is in New Mexico
-2/14 dealer says BS is in Jefferson City, MO
-2/17 sticker date changed to 2/17
-2/17 asked dealer for location update and only provided me with ETA, no location update given
-2/21 sticker date changed to 2/21
-2/21 asked dealer for location update and only provided me with ETA, states that he cannot see location any longer due to changes that Ford is making. (ANY INSIGHT ON THIS???)
-2/22 sticker date changed BACK TO 2/17 (HAS THIS HAPPENED TO ANYONE?!)

after some research.. the maps below are what I am thinking the train route is and due to my info listed above, I am assuming the dates that I added on the map are where the train possibly was on those dates.

If it shipped in February I would count on a March delivery. Mine took almost 30 days. It was I think 2 or 3 days shy of 30 days from ship to delivery. I'm in SC so I'm betting yours took a very similar route to mine.

It probably did take a similar route, at least until it got to Missouri. Yours probably split off onto a different route in St Louis, which seems to be one of the main hub points. However, depending on where in South Carolina that you live, that can add on quite a bit of transit time, as it can be at least an extra 300-600 miles to South Carolina. Here are a bunch of BS that got delivered to dealerships in my area, including mine, within a fairly quick timeframe recently.

Wow those are some quick turn around times. Those all look like dealers orders to me. Most usually have the customers last night at the top if it was one of the reservations. Mine had my name on it.

They are dealer orders. I was looking up their orders for stock to see what the average transit time was.

If you know for sure it's been shipped (Dealer can tell you) this just means that the trucking company is waiting for your Sport to get there. It'll say "Pending" until they receive it via Rail. Mine was shipping on Union Pacific. Last update I had was Illinois. I'd imagine it should be hitting New Castle sometime this week.
Any chance some of you can share your rail car numbers? On a Ford Truck forum someone posted a pic that showed your rail car number is on the window sticker at the top, 6 dIgits after the 9-normal. But the letters to the rail car number (if that is indeed what it is) are not provided. So I was curious if any of you with rail car numbers have noticed if this 6 digit number on your window sticker corresponds, minus the letters? And if so, I wondered if the rail cars are starting with the same letters for cars shipped from the same plants. Mine is coming from Hermosillo plant.
My dealer is getting me my rail car number tomorrow!
, but it would be cool if there was a way to figure this out on the window sticker alone and in Ford Forum 😊

I've got mine en route. So, what's the point of knowing rail car #? I'm sorry, I must be missing something.

It is really just for fun. If you know the rail car number, you can call the railroad”s automated system and find out where your baby bronco is on its journey. The Ford forum threads have the numbers to call in a few different posts.
