Good photos. The scene looks like a model railroad engine that has had the body shell removed and mounted on a toy truck.

Hopefully the transport company scouted the route so the engine clears all overpasses, etc. A few years ago a truck with too high a load took out a bridge on Interstate 5 not too far north of where I live in Washington state.

Yes, the route has good clear for big cargos. In fact, more than dozen big locomotives like this have used tbe same route on trucks.
