I strongly suspect that this is one of those rail artifacts, like many others I've personally dealt with, where the only way and place it's moving is on its wheels only across the major rail shop/yard's town in the dead of night while corporate headquarters is asleep, and no further.

We've briefly looked into this, moving large wreckers. Without going into detail, and though still not inexpensive, you can move them over the road likely with four trailers - boom, cab, frame and trucks. Rail is the only other option - special movement applies, probably two locomotives for braking, high insurance premium but possible. Agreed that the cost may not be for the faint of heart.
