[photos] Mighty steam

While visiting the Hanford site last Friday (also known somewhat mysteriously as the Department of Energy's Office of River Protection), I was distracted by this mighty steam locomotive.

Note Gerry Nordley in that second picture for scale — the locomotive is approximately three Nordleys tall.

Because nothing says nuclear power like heavy iron steam!
