Crawling along at 10 miles per day, TxDOT recently oversaw the transport of a mammoth 1.7 million pound Toshiba steam turbine engine. A custom rig with 520 tires transported the generator, measuring in at 39 feet wide, 18 feet high, and as long as a football field. This is the heaviest load that has ever been moved this distance in Texas!

Everything's bigger in Texas!
Hmm, what about using party balloons filled with helium to lift it and a couple of hair dryers to propel it along...?

I've got two questions, #1: how fast is that thing moving, and #2: what type of engine is in the truck pulling the whole load?
