They probably go to the lot by the train.Well the lot is thinning out. I would have thought Tesla would have built as many as possible before the shut down.
To me this looks like there shutting down production to avoid exceeding the 200K limit. Or are they stockpiling cars bound for Canada in a different lot? guess this gets back to how do they get the cars from the line over to Richmond to be loaded on rail cars? Or to the shipyard to head overseas?
Augkuo again thanks for the pictures.
The loading spurs were gutted out for automated inventory system. See my previous postWondering about this. Satellite view shows the rail loading area by the factory. Was that removed or is it just that the freight rail service was stopped?
You state that was the only loading site, but that is not the case. Is the other one not active?The loading part was gutted out for automated inventory system. See my previous post
Found a LOT of Model 3's in a Tesla lot - Pictures inside
It's a railyard behind Tesla factory and not part of Tesla, those gutted out were the only rail coming intoYou state that was the only loading site, but that is not the case. Is the other one not active?
It's pier 80. Link to satellite image comparison from Building Tesla, which has images from all 4 locations (Fremont, GF1, GF2. Pier 80)Yes
That is an old image you have. Tesla cut it out for the other automated buildings. the rail access was discuss several time on this thread, just about every time we get new drone footage. Then we get fussed at because were off topic. But why are we off topic when Augkuo is off for the weekend and isn't making a special trip to give us Tesla Porn to look at.So we kill kill time discussing how inefficient Tesla is not using there rail spur and how they have to truck the cars from the factory up to Richmond where there is a rail loading facility. ( Pour logistic's)
How does Tesla get the cars from the factory to the Richmond site or the shipyard? that is why my post referred to them
I had noted that there was railroad construction activity going into the plant along the old roadbed leading into the plant. I need New drone footage to see what changed since the last footage. Is tesla just removing the last of the rail going into the plant or are they starting to rebuild new rail access.
Bottom line is Tesla needs to get rail access back into the plant if there going to produce at the high volumes. you got parts coming in and cars going out. And tesla isn't building tractor trailers yet. there is a lot of lost labor driving, loading and unloading currently to get them on the train.
My S & E came by rail and they only had a couple miles on them. so how did they get from the assembly line to Richmond?
There was also a picture of a ship yard with a whole boatload of Tesla's heading overseas. I forgot the pier number but they had to get there to. How?
