Have you tracked it via rail?
The website others were using to track it through the rail yards now requires a password so other than Nicks updates I'm just playing the waiting game. I'm driving up with the family from STL next weekend for a pre planned trip so as long as it's there by then I'll be happy. Based on the 3/10-3/16 estimate I should be good.

I received rail car number then tracked it over a phone call.

Yeah hopefully there's no more delays and it comes in Saturday morning at the latest. It wouldn't be the end of the world to make the ~4hr drive again but I'd prefer not to have to do it two weekends in a row.

Unfortunately our friends we were planning on visiting came down with the flu so our trip will be soley to get the Bronco. Debating if the wife and I are going to stay the night or just make it a long day trip now.

Figured I'd post it publicly as well in case any one else was curious.

I would stay the night. Call The Elms at 816-630-5500 to get a room, mention my dealership and they give you discounted rates. Downtown Excelsior Springs is incredibly historic and has all kinds of fun things to see/do. There are 3 or 4 wineries, a brewery, shops, a historic district, etc.

Would strongly recommend staying at The Elms, getting reservations at Van Till Winery for dinner Friday night, breakfast/brunch at Rays Diner (cash only), lunch at Wabash BBQ an ice cream from Dairy B.

Definitely a fun weekend get a way.

In and out in under 2 hours. Smoothest transaction I've ever had on a vehicle. Almost feels like I got got or missed something. Can't thank @13COBRA enough. It's a pretty shitty day so no outside pictures. But wife is still a happy camper in her new ride.View attachment 1742370
As long as she's happy, we're all happy!
