Do Dealerships have more access other than VVR to Ford systems when a vehicle is in transit? Ford Chat told me to check with dealership to find the reason as to why it got delayed.

I think Ford just lost my truck at this point lol
Only thing that makes sense at this point for you is if you too are waiting for a chip.

I received a railcar number from Ford chat this morning. I called the automated line and the latest update for my railcar was from August 11th and it’s in Alberta. Frustrating.
The railways automated line is still not updated, but this morning For chat said my order status is in transit and has been received at Junction Point (Indiana Harbor Belt Rr Co) in Riverdale IL with the same estimate delivery date 10/10-10/16. Car CTTX695105

Dealership report, they don’t have any more information. 🤷🏼‍♂️
I had to ask Ford Chat specifically for the location to get an update. Didn't even try to reach out to my dealer. My truck is at "Junction Point (Canadian National Railways ) Riverdale, IL". Expecting yours to be there as well.

From what I can tell. the red top right rail yard is owned by CNR, the one on the bottom right is owned by UP. Expecting to get up-to-date info from UP once the rail car makes it to the UP rail yard.

The Riverdale, IL rail yard then connect to the track on the very right that heads to St. Louis.

Probably more info that anyone needs, but I used this opportunity to do some digging. If anyone has addl info / corrections, chime in, please!

Well just a heads up, I have heard there is a massive # of cars in a storage lot out there waiting for the dispute to end.
Do you have any information about this dispute? I couldn’t find anything in my 2 second search lol

I don't check in with chat, but ordertrack.app says I changed to 'in transit' at 4:00 am this morning. Ford.com hasn't changed.

Called and confirmed it with 3 different dealers in San Diego just to make sure my dealer wasn't making this up.
I just talked to my dealer and they said they had a Mach-e sit from 1 Aug till late August so idk if it’s a dispute or just long delays but something is going on. I’m so close to Mira Loma (like 20-30 mins) I wish we could just get it from there lol. They’re gonna try to do something about it but who knows, fingers crossed we all get our lightnings soon!!

Well this sucks. May explain why the trail went cold for me. My sympathies, I'm build week 7/25 so not nearly as bad as you.

I have my railcar #, bu no idea where my truck is, Ford chat doesn't have any new info in 2 weeks. NS phone trace claims it left Illinios on 9/9, but I'm not so sure anymore. Dealer hasn't (yet) replied to my email.

I checked with Chat this morning as well. No update after Arriving there. 9/9 or 9/10. Different dates different cahts.
I was told it hasn't received a UP number yet and the old train car number I have is the CNR one to this yard.

Looking at TaxmanHog's spreadsheet it looks like deliveries to California started running into delays starting from 7/25 build week. Straight2VHS being the longest wait in California so far coming from 5/2 build week.

My CSX railcar status is now "Empty" in Jacksonville, FL, after sitting constructively placed in Baldwin, FL since 9/12! Should be heading to dealer soon I hope.
