I wonder if this means places like San Diego will get them first or do they plan to systematically spread them throughout the country at first?

Maybe the all land rail route will make Phoenix one of the first to receive?

If you look closely at the picture in the article, you'll notice that the cars are rolling of a train. If you look even closer, you'll notice the train is "armored", as in the train cars have sides to keep people out.

That's how they stopped Mexicans from jumping the parked or moving train and stealing parts (catalytic converters, etc) off of the early production Fits - they use "armored" trains.

I'm sure at least a few readers think I'm making that up. Google "Honda, Mexico, Train, Theft" and you'll see articles like this. Weird to think our HRVs are under armed guard on their trip here.

Perhaps another reason for the hardening is to keep stowaways out?
