    Just wondering if the timeline stayed accurate as projected. For instance, in his thread I see a lot of "<D1, projected rail dates to destination>" - Does that info hold up or are there usually/sometimes delays?

    Thanks:)

    The dates RS gives stick better the closer you can get to those dates. If it's projected and you're more than a couple months out, don't be surprised by the addition (or subtraction) of a month. My projected timeline was 2 months out when I went D1. A week later it changed to one month sooner and then that stuck. Everything sped up for me when FCA stopped taking orders and gave priority to the M6.

    RS's dates have been pretty much accurate for us. the dates have changed here and there (moved up a day, moved back a day). Right now we are at the rail yard hoping any day for it to be delivered to the dealer but are still a few days away from the original delivered date from when it went D1

    did not use RS but live right by the plant in Ontario.
    again today saw three truck loads of Challengers leaving the plant. each truck had at Hellcats easy.
    whatever the hold up was before they are all leaving the plant now. got mine last week. if you have a VIN expect a delivery soon.
    not sure how the rail works as the loading station/railcars are inside the plant. best of luck in getting your car soon. FYI scary fast and loud. i mean nascar scary.

    Between FCA, the Rail Roads, other unforeseen items; things change....but RS is spot on with the information he receives he is the best thing we all have going for us to stay updated.. Otherwise, we'd just be sitting by the phone waiting on our dealer to give us outdated information. RS rocks. Hit that donate button on his avatar, by the way.

    ResumeSpeed does a great job of keeping you informed. The rail and trucking is a bit out of his control, but he has magic powers and seems to keep them on track as best as possible. He has kept many family members here sane during the build and ship process!:D

    His dates were pretty spot on for me. Only moving date I encountered was deliver date from the train yard parking lot to dealer. Although, some have had build dates shifted due to parts availability.

    Pretty accurate.... give or take a week or so. Delays usually involve a Fenkell inspection/splitter repair is most common.

    I would be driving a Vette had not RS kept providing solid information when all others were giving me BS.
