They say everything is bigger in America. Well here are three sightings from the last two days to support that claim.
This road train was heading west on the I-84 in Oregon yesterday
I've seen many variations of this, a big residential motor home, towing its own smaller vehicle, in this case a 4x4 Jeep; can't imagine what this set-up must cost.
But the biggest was this huge freight train, running parallel with the WA-14. I saw it in the distance, caught up fairly easily, drew a mile or so ahead, and then snapped it as it came past. It is pulled by two engines from BNSF, with a third at the rear. In between I counted 105 of these black tankers. If each one is 50 ft long overall, that makes the whole train over 1 mile long.
