That's nothing. Look at some of the ones in this slide show: http://www.youtube.com/watch?NR=1&v=qkOJLylOo1k

The longest truck trains I've ever seen were on I-15 in southern Utah. They were limited to triples but some of them had 45' boxes with triple axles. Some the triple belly dumps and dry tankers also had triple axles, suggesting they could handle some serious weight. I didn't see any triple axle tractors or dollies, though.

Wow, after reading all the possibilities I think I would just follow at a safe distance.
