With the 2-hour block and limited socializing, I'm glad Mormons have found another source of excitement.

Utah's largest truckload is the truckload of bullshit that comes out of the COB.

It's the new ATM that's going in at Temple Square.

One of the good Transformers, or a bad guy?

It's a little suggestive of the massive heavy-industry creations of Stalin's USSR.

Q: where did it originate?

as I recall, transformers were often shipped (to major destinations, usual for that size equipment) via rail.

Less rail > more trucks on the highways > more need for highway maintenance > higher taxes

eta: the Ry companies are partly to blame, they don't like single-car shipments anymore (de-regulation), they greatly prefer unit trains of containers, grains, lumber, other similar shipments.

Rails have seen major gains in profitability due partly to smaller crew sizes, reduced maintenance due to CWR, CTC, Distributed Power, etc.
Railroading is considerably different now as compared to the 60s!
