The long and the short of it

So, I found myself down at the site of the new light rail station in the University District just as a couple of big rigs were making delivery of two I-beams that must have been 70 or 80 feet long. The construction site was pretty cluttered, so the hardhats moved a couple of loaders out of the way, but the drivers still had to sort of snake their way through the site. Luckily, their rigs were totally up to the job:

Maybe this is  humdrum for anyone who routinely works with exceptionally long girders, but I thought that an under-carriage back-end steering compartment was pretty boss.
