fuzzymoomoo, ice-capades, RPF, and all other commenters,

 

Wow. It arrived today. Almost everything you experts said was true. Build date was 08/2018, so Aug 3 was a pretty good guess.

 

Albuquerque rail lot did not produce reliable shipping info. Last Thursday, the estimated ship date was Monday 8/20. On phone Tuesday he said it had left the lot. Today I asked the driver and he left Albuquerque this morning (Wednesday). Oh well, I am now a VERY HAPPY CAMPER. And yes, I have a Lance 1181 Truck Camper (4400# dry weight without liquids and the myriad of belongings that we take) that will ride on my new beast. It is OK. I have a cargo capacity of 6500#. I chose the 6.2l gasser and I really like the engine on the first few miles. Specs compare favorably with my 2004 6.0 diesel, more horses but less torque. Here is the first view I got of the truck:

First 2109 F-350 in my small town

 

Thanks all again for being so helpful.

 

Rick

Do Green Sticker's really get expedited preference on rail and truck?

Most of the time. The green Window Stickers are used for retail orders to make them easier to identify for expedited shipment to dealerships. The retail orders are also automatically "hot flagged" for expedited delivery in the records that the carrier dispatch departments use. Sometimes there are delays depending on the volume and mix of vehicles headed towards a particular area. In addition, the dispatch departments have software that helps them determine what mix of vehicles of different size vehicles they can fit on a particular car carrier. Some vehicles can only be placed in a particular place on the carrier, etc. Usually, only 3 F-150's can be loaded on a carrier, only 1 F-Series Super Duty DRW (Dual Rear Wheel) can be loaded on a carrier and it has to be at the back of the bottom deck, manual transmission Mustangs have to be loaded a certain way, etc.
