The government is not hiding anything there... in fact they employ many of us "public" there. The "secret" nuke crap that comes out of that plant is not so secret. It's leftover nuclear processing chemicals melted inside of thick glass blocks. Those glass blocks are surrounded by several layers of thick plate steel, lead, and concrete. It is virtually leak proof, and tamper resistant.
If the containment system (solid glass surrounded by thick shield layers) even remotely emitted radioactivity or a gas, there ain't no way a train crew would pick it up, to haul it at 10 mph for 1,200+ miles. Consequently, simply passing by at 10 m.p.h., while you stand 15 feet away, would not give you or your loved one any more effect than a 1/2 hour at a beach on a sunny day.
The reason it is done under the cover of darkness, is to avoid and not be seen by paranoid wierdo's who protest this cleanup effort, and more importantly, make it more difficult for any terrorist related surprise activity. Whether the stuff can really do any harm doesn't really matter to a terrorist, since their main objective is simply to terrorize the maximum number of average Americans with fear.
