Good for you. Assuming all goes well from here, car should arrive to dealer within a week.

Thanks! I'm in CA so probably 2 to 3 weeks from here. Crossing my fingers that I can pick it up before Thanksgiving.

This afternoon the status has moved again to dispatched from factory

Just checked tonight and it's showing at the port now. Since I'm in California, is the "port" the same as VDC in Oxnard? If so, then wow it came pretty fast from Spartanburg.

Spoke to my salesguy this morning who said the "port" here refers to the train depot in Spartanburg and that the train is scheduled to arrive in Oxnard on Nov 14. So probably 2 more weeks before it shows up at the dealer.

Is there a way to get the train schedule for the rest of 2019?

Oh, that's annoying. East coasters (for the most part) have car carrier pick up from the SC VPC. To Florida it's usually 1 week once the car hits the VPC.

Like everyone here, I check the progress status twice a day

I spoke to my SA on Friday and he said the car would arrive at the dealer on Tuesday. But this morning I checked the status and looks like it's already there!

I'm in NorCal while the dealer is in SoCal. Unfortunately this week I have a business trip until Wednesday and then I have various commitments, so the earliest I can pick up is next Saturday. This is going to be a very long week for me
