Some amazing videos here. After the first "Down Under" truck trains, they show some huge items being moved.

It's not unusual to see long trucks like that in our Northwest. Just about all trucks that cross the 26 parallel are that big. It's more unusual to not see a prime mover pulling that many trailers. It's the cheapest and only way to get goods to and from the mining towns around our state. And they hop along as well still doing 100km per hour most of the time even on the dirt roads. They are a pain to overtake you have to wait for a long stretch of road and they never seem to end.

They run triple trailer rigs in Oregon I have had them pass me when I was hauling my camp trailer on I-5 very upsetting...
