We have all seen freight trains hauling semi trailers. I was at a place in Hamilton, Ontario near National Steel Car where this car was made, and saw this Arcelor Mittal freight car sitting on top of a semi trailer!

DM&E seems to do it quite a bit too.

I saw a loco frame and body on a trailer once. The locomotive was not an EMD or GE locomotive, but seemed to be a Bombardier or something like that.
