Conveyance Mechanical Failure
As of Monday, I know exactly where my car is !!
Last Friday, my car was FINALLY on a train headed to Chicago ...

... making nice progress !!
Then Monday rolls around and here is the up-date ...
In Transit Delay - Conveyance Mechanical Failure (Canadian National Railways) Markham, IL May-17-2010, 05:29 CT
Current ETA May-19-2010 (1st ETA update from my orig 4/26 ETA)
Thursday, the status was still the same ... this sucks !!
Anyone else as "lucky" and "special" to have this same or similar status ??
Grabberguy (from the Mustang Source) had a similar up-date last Friday, his car was on a train broke down in Champaign, IL ... BUT has since progressed to where it is now in Texas.
Markham is a pretty good sized Chicago Rail Yard and it is right off of I294. I'd guess this could be where rail cars either get separated from the train and unloaded (cars then re-loaded on transport trucks) or continue on to other parts of the country.
This yard is only 190 mi. south of my dealership (all interstate), so the May-19-2010 ETA was believable on Monday, but NOT anymore !!
My dealer has shared every update as it has become available, so I doubt you can tell me anything more than they can ... vin is 1ZVBP8AM0B5108559 if you want to try.
