You don't see this

very often.

Wind turbine parts being taken by train up to Northern BC. The train was very slow moving; I had a customer arrive after the train moved through who said that she had waited 30minutes for the crossing to open.

You can get an idea of how large the blades are compared to the car.

Dave saw the train in another city earlier in the day. We figured it took roughly 3.5 hours for the train to reach our small town. A driving distance of an hour.

Wow! I knew the blades were big but they are huge!

I saw the same thing last weekend on the highway. Each one is as long as a semi truck. Semis can only transport one at a time. Great pics!
