      The route was obviously surveyed, and the fact that the trailer was very low and the crossing was elevated was never taken into consideration.

      the people survey with a high pole,most times you have no idea what trailer is being used.

      All the driver needs to do is pull that ball handle gear to lift it off the ground

      Only question I have... knowing they where taking that route was the railroad notified to stop traffic on the tracks? A lot of time was spent crossing them

      An engineer did. There was a 40 ton bridge on the main road, the transformer is too heavy to chopper in.

      One big problem with crossing like this is that low vehicles hand up on then. a tour bus hung up on one in the town where I live; a train hit an killed a couple of people. don't know how they solved the problem. they made it over this one that is all that counts. Wonder how got their ass chewed about this screw up. thanks for the video.

      The people in the comments section that have recently commented in this year that said "These people need to learn how to drive" and "These people really need to put something in this Railroad crossing" or some other crap like that need to learn the difference between 2017-Present and ALMOST 7 YEARS AGO. Things were different back then and they improved throughout the years that this video and any other video related to this was on YouTube.

      I will stand by my statement, as I see no compelling facts as to support anything they did correctly. Getting hung up while over the track was 100% avoidable.

      +eric wsmith Dude, you don't have to be mean like that. They aren't messing around on the tracks. They are thinking of a way to get across the tracks without knocking anything over and/or preventing a train crash. You need to learn the point of this video by looking it up instead of being rude to innocent people like me, acting like people are dumber than you/ thinking that people don't get your sarcastic remark and trying to get a point through to me even though you know you are wrong.

      Common sense has not changed in 7 years, you crank up that trailer before they even started the turn, not fuck around on the train tracks.

      Each time I see one of these low-loaders it strikes me that they are almost scraping the road surface from the start. I realize they need to be low to pass under bridges and such, but I am surprised that it's not easier to raise them up some inches when needed. "just" a couple of hydraulic cylinders at each pivot point.... adds some cost of course....

      sebofo they actually have hydraulics. that's how they do lift it. both in the neck and the tower on the jeep and rear steering section. Remember, too, that the higher you raise it, the higher the center of gravity, and it can become tippier.

      I have to believe the RR. Is aware if the situation. My butt would be puckered until clear. From my original perspective I thought those overhead wires were going to be a real problem.

      They should have placed a steel bar across those tracks. It would have activated the crossing signals, and sent a signal to rail dispatchers that something was wrong. The rail signals would have turned RED on both sides of that crossing, hopefully preventing a collision.

      For those asking why the poor route. Sometimes its the only way you can go due to bridges and over head restrictions set by Local and state governments. Many times these jurisdictions prohibit trucks from taking the easy route and make you travel the hard route such as seen here. Its not always the truckers idea to do this kind of stuff. Besides This is very common for over size loads to have to lift and lower the load as they travel thru tight spots and over RR crossings.

      Not trying to armchair quarter back, but the route was poorly planed. At 1:53 you can see that the driver swung as wide to the left as he could before making a wide right turn over the tracks which he can see is elevated. Notice how his right ride of the trailer is pinched up against the stop sign bending it over.  I also notice a post indicated a natural gas pipe line within 5 Ft of the Trailer ???? I wonder what tonnage the bridge in front of them is rated at.... It was neat to see them working to shim the trailer up enough to clear the tracks. Never seen that done except with a wrecker before.

      Phil's Midwest Classic Cars Truck drivers must take the routes that the government makes them take when hauling permit loads. A highway patrol officer made this route plan by using maps to avoid low bridges and truck restrictions.

      I always wondered why is the front edge of the main deck not beveled so a guy get past a few more low spots?

      It typically hits in the middle of the deck, not the leading edge.
