Hanford Rail Operations

Post by phillyrube » Tue Aug 13, 2019 8:58 am

Sitting around bored and found a couple youtubes about plutonium production at Hanford, WA. They used a couple of shielded locos and cars to move spent fuel from the B reactor to the "Queen Mary" processing plants. Neat stuff, but a long lasting legacy. They have put on display two locos and two spent fuel cars.

I'm wondering about the huge headlights. In one video it appears to be a Mars light.

Could have been an ex-SP loco
