Just received call from Del. Exp. Specialist who said Tesla recently switched to using train service to get cars from California to Tennessee via a hub in Birmingham. This is better for the car because it is enclosed but adds "about three weeks" to the transit time and also the car is not visible for tracking during that period. WTF? Is the train hub in Birmingham England??
Oh well. Car is in production now and will arrive "late August". For those who are interested the order was place late June.
