Arizona Anyone know where the Rail Yard is?

Ok so, my 15 Year old is brimming over with excitement. I guess our car is in the Rail Yard in Peoria. Maybe stuck for the weekend.

With everyone posting pictures from rail yards around the country he wants to go by and see if he can see his new car.

Can't really blame him.

Anyone know where that location is in Phoenix? For some reason I thought it was in Peoria maybe?

Thanks!

Couldn't find a reference to anything... typed in "Peoria,AZ Railyard" on google earth and this popped up. No clue if this is really it or not.

There are two rail yards where they unload cars one's in Tempe, Az. and the other is in EL Mirage, Az. On the west side. Most Government Motor cars go to Tempe Az.

Do you know the Address in El Mirage? or Tempe? Can't seem to find it.
Can we actually drive over there and look over the Fence and maybe take a picture?

Well Have you found what you are looking for. I forgot about the rail yard in Phoenix AZ.:( it's just east of 7th streeet, east of the ball park, That's the biggest of the rail yard in the Phx. area. And real easy to get right up to the fence, all the way around it. The newest rail yard is the one out in El Mirage, AZ. I think that is where Fords and Mazda, are off loaded. Phx, are where dogdes are off loaded and some imports???? Most imports are truck in from Calif.

Well AZ2010SS just responded and he seems to know what the deal is.

My 15 year old, (who is getting this car), is making me CRAZY all weekend long trying contain himself. I was the same way I guess when I got my first car.

So AZ2010SS says..." train yard is just north of Buckeye between 8th street and about 14th street. My office is about a mile from there so Ill stop and see if I can see anything. Im sure you'll have your car the first part of next week!!"

So I think yea it might be the one by the ball park right? So If I take the 10 to 7th and jump off and go Left, I should be able to find it right?

Yea not too far. Besides it hot and yukky out so why not check it out?

So yea we have just been sitting around playing XBox360.

I did just get a call from my "For Sale" on my 1999 Lincoln Continental Ad. Been thinking pretty strongly about keeping it as my Driver. It was my Dads and when he died I took it over. I've done like "Everything" by the book to keep it really nice.

OH well, this guy is driving over from Mesa to get a look at it. Everyone else that looiks at it says..... "It's Kinda a Dads Car"

ah yea??? I always say...

This guy sounded kinda like an Older fellow so I dunno maybe he'll take it.

Timing would be pretty good!

:party0038::party0038:

Sold. Wow what amazing Timing. So this older Couple comes over to look at the My Daily Driver... Which I had on cars.com for a month.



Still, kinda feel weird about selling my dads car... being in such good shape. Its been a great driver for me since he died. Only really have room for 2 cars anyway... So yea... umm I'm glad. I told the people that purchased it that I needed it for a couple more days, as the Camaro is still in the RailYard.

Good timing I guess. Price was good, about what I asked for it. So I guess it worked out good right?

Glad you found a buyer... I finally found a buyer for my Evo last month. I told him he could have it when I got a VIN (which I did 2 weeks ago), had no idea at the time I would be instrumental in anchoring the new "area 51". He is coming by tomorrow to get it, I would have been less sad had I known my car would be here shortly... now I wonder.

Waiting for my Camaro

Hey MikeySoft,

How long did it take to get your Camaro? My SS had a delivery date of 7/31, but it is 8/6 and I am still waiting. Thinking about a covert operation to the railyard myself!

Well lets see.... I was pretty much dealerless... after my Z06 nightmare I had with Brown and Brown. So I shopped for a new Dealer, Freeway was the only one that had both Allocation and GM Family Discount.

I ordered on 5-6-9
It was delivered to the Rail Yard in Phx right after the July 4th weekend. It sat there for about 3-4 Days. Then I had Painted Stripes, Ground Effects, Tint, ect. But lets not count that.

So I'd say 5-6 order and 7-13 to the Rail yard. 2 Months and a Week?

(Wow duh, read my timeline event Log Below)

About 8 went out today and there are 2 silver, 1 black and a victory red left at about 2 this afternoon. Those most likely wont go out until tomorrow.

WOW! Cars that come into the rail yard (once unloaded), typically must be out of the yard with in 72 Hours. This does not include Sunday's or holidays.

My Camaro spent the Weekend (meaning it came into the yard on Friday), and was not moved to the Dealer Till Tues Morning. Thats how my Stripe package got COOKED, since it was in the front seat of the car exposed to the sun.

I went over to the yard before work today and 3 trucks were being loaded. There were 3 silver camaros, but I was only able to see 2 of them upclose. Neither one had the HID lamps so they weren't mine. I didn't see the 3rd one because I had to get to work. This is torture lol!

Has anyone installed the Skip Shift Eliminator? Is this Skip Shift business really a big deal or just overplayed?

I dont find it to be a big deal. Gets me once in a while but you just move the shifter towards 3rd and 4th then right back into 2nd.
