From camarotracking.com - i had a similar question, this was the answer.


3. Has arrived in the yard, but not yet dispatched, it is marked "Available to ship from Yard". This means your Railcar or Truck has reached its regional distribution point. It has been unloaded and is parked waiting for being dispatched and loaded and released for transport to the dealer. The Shipped By now will probably say it is now by Truck but it has not been loaded nor is it moving when listed as Available to ship from yard.
4. Is in transit from the rail yard, it is now marked "In Transit from Yard". This means your car has been dispatched for shipping. It does not mean that the truck is actually moving but once dispatched the truck is posted for a driver to load and released to transport to the dealership. A truck can carry up to 12 cars at a time and it may have 11 stops before it reaches your dealer so please dont get over excited. However, this is a very good sign that your car could be dropped off at your dealer within 72 hours. Get ready for that special call.

Hmm you might be more in this range...

1. Is at Oshawa, and available to ship, it is marked "Available to Ship from Osh" If your car is getting factory stripes it will stay at this status until it actually ships The Shipped By which can be listed as Truck or Railroad means absolutely nothing at this point and is not accurate nor indicative of actual shipping.
2. Is in transit from Oshawa, it is marked "In Transit from Osh". This means your car has actually been turned over to the transportation company. A bill of laiding has been issued and the invoice has been produced. The Shipped By now is accurate and tells us how it is moving by Truck or Railroad. If by railroad a railcar number will be listed. For further railcar tracking please visit the Tracking Assistance thread or follow the instructions listed later in this post. For Truck tracking information you must visit the Tracking Assistance thread and ask a moderator for help, provide your full vin and they can offer some assistance.
