Found it yesterday. I was glad that Ford, and the dealer got everything right. I think that they carry them by train to drop points, and then the truck driver's picks them up to distribute them to the dealers.

Scrappy is a wise man. From his mouth to the Ford God's ears........

Let's hope after they hit the receiving yard, there's a truck driver headed our ways.

Correct. Every state has a yard where the vehicles go. Here in MN, it's a town near the Mississippi called Cottage Grove. All the new vehicles that come by rail go there. And then the transport trucks deliver all over from there. (Except KC fa150s, they come by transport right from KC)

Call it an educated guesstimate. There is a plus or minus factor of a week. LOL
