I dunno...but...Palo Verde just west of Phoenix sure has a lot of tracks in an around it ;-)
If you looked closely to my Nuclear Power Plant, you mite have seen a experimental nuclear locomotive on display outside one of the buildings.
That's cool Jolly!
It looked cooler before the cat crashed it and I had to shorten the Nacelles mounts, but now it shoul fit thru the tunnels.
Nice! I'll bet it's louder than a UP Big Blow!
Wow. Absolutely bizarre.
Yeah, back in the 50s they were thinking about putting nuclear power in about everything. Remember the Savannah?
Yes. My father had built a plastic model kit of it. (Was it made by Revell?) That sat on a shelf in the living room for ages.
Yea they even wanted to blast a rail/highway route through the mojave desert using a nuke blast!
I think historians 100 years in the future will wonder why we abandoned nuclear power so quickly, and why we had so many glow-in-the-dark misconceptions about it.
There are ways to use nuclear explosives without the expected environmental impact. The U235 to strontium/cobalt split is not the only possible result.
