Thanks Longboard, good point, but I am just wondering if an overall pattern of further delays develops (or not). Njhw appears to have a similar case in point -- built on 8/22 but he can't find out the delivery date (now over 3 weeks later).
Hmmmmm, Ford . . . . ?
Read a report the other day about the severe congestion of freight rail traffic in the US -- especially in the center of the country and the eastern seaboard.
Rail freight carriers are giving priority to crude oil tanker tains to get the oil from from the Dakota oil fields to refineries in the East and the Gulf Coast. Very good profits for the rail companies with this steady high demand business.
Farmers are complaining bitterly that they are not getting their crops to market because frieght cars to carry them are unavailable.
Getting Transits from the factory in Kansas City to dealers out across the country make also be impacted by this shortage of rail freight capacity.
