Mine sat there for about a day, but if yours is to be delivered in the general area, it could be shorter, or longer as it transfers over to a trucking company.

Who knows... I don't think that the Yard Center is a distribution center. All I know is that it's been there since the 20th....

I live in Illinois and my car arrived at the yard center on 8/4 at 12:06 pm and then arrived at the Chicago Hts distribution yard on 8/6 at 1:00 am. It was delivered to my dealer in Fox Lake Il on 8/7.

Former railroad conductor here. If you are referring to how long a car sits in a rail yard waiting to move on it is called dwell time. The average dwell time depends on the size of yard and traffic flows. But generally it is 20-24 hours. Sometimes the arriving train will have blocks of cars that will be part of another train, if they don't have enough cars sometimes the train is canceled till the next day. It might be assigned to go onto a train that only runs certain days of the week too, so that is also why a particular car will sit for a few days.
