Well I guess so. I was told today that my car left Louisville KY yesterday morning and that it is anywhere between there and Lapaz, Bolivia. My rail car # is ETTX803422. I didn't know trains from Ky went to Bolivia....perhaps it's a " SEA TRAIN ".:lol: Any way I called the Allied # and told them that I was getting the car as a gift from the Make A Wish foundation and that both my legs were schedule'd to be amputated this weekend so I needed to know when the car would arrive so that I may reschedule my amputation if need be. He said he would see what he could do. Personally, I don't think he believed me. :jester: So any way, there it is. I did however call Allied and they were of no help. They wouldn't even take any info. So if anyone has a " IN " with these people your help would surely be appreciated.

Your Welcome. !! It's amazing sources I met and things I learned since I started on the Solstice forum site 1 1/2 ago.

I called Allied for Hummingbyrd on the Solstice Forum, she couldn't get any info. Gave them a story that I was having surgery and need to know if my car would get here before that Friday because that was the day of the surgery. She did end up giving me the info. I liked it better when I knew someone in dispatch. It was easy.

Maybe a little. :) :) :)
Well then I'm glad I didn't continue to tell him that I am a organ donor and that I am donating my legs to science. You see my feet are right at and below my knees ( very rare ) ailment. Good thing I didn't because I would have felt like a "dumb%$#@" if he would have asked "then how are you going to drive? ":jester:

You can search just about anything between the Solstice forum and the Sky forum. Sometimes you have a harder time finding some things. But then you just look at certain people post. Like Small Dealer posts alot of info. So if you don't find it right away but you keep looking and have an idea who might of posted something you just search those names. because you kind of know who has good and correct info.
