Once you get your VIN. it is on average about two weeks till your car is built give or take any shortages or limited parts for certain options..

FordETIS look up
Here you can see the Factory Build date once your car is scheduled (the date will look wonky till then) and what your car has for options (note there is a delay from the time your car is built to the time the info appears of a few days)

Tracking your car with the ETTX number
I just found some instructions on how to track your car if you have the ETTX number (the rail car number).

  1. Call CSX at 1-800-235-2352
  2. When prompted for location or weight, press "1" on your phone for location.
  3. When prompted for the car initials, say ETTX then wait for the next prompt. OR key in 32-81-81-92 (for ETTX)(letter and position on your phone)
  4. When prompted for the car number, say or key in your 6-digit ETTX car number
  5. When prompted for next car say DONE.
  6. That's it, enjoy your updated status report.
