I was anxiously awaiting the arrival of my 3rd Rail Rio Grande F3s, which UPS was showing as scheduled to be delivered this afternoon. In checking for an update, a small "Delay" sign appeared. Called UPS to see what was going on, and the customer service lady said the cause was a "train wreck!"
She didn't know any more. (I'm assuming she didn't mean that the delay was because it was my trains that got wrecked. ) I suppose the delivery truck must have gotten stuck at a crossing due to a derailment. I don't know how the truck could be delayed so long that the entire day's deliveries were shelved, but there it is. Just hope the UPS truck didn't get hit! Since UPS doesn't deliver on Saturdays, my engines get to sit on the truck all weekend (in 90+ degree heat), and I'll have to wait until Monday before they arrive. Maybe.
I've had trains delayed before, but never because of a train wreck.
