Nuclear fuel is transferred to the reprocessing plant in England in special trains, with two cars containing the fuel, with an engine top-and-tailing the train.
The Us has a very large, brand-new nuclear storage facility in Nevada (Yucca Mountain, Yucca Mountain nuclear waste repository - Wikipedia) that is not in use, owing to states refusing to allow the material to be transported through their states. But that gets us into politics, so I’ll stop.

The Santa Fe modified a couple of drover cabooses for the AEC to serve as guard cars.
One is preserved in Barstow at the Mojave River Valley Museum and another at the S. Calif RR Museum (OERM).
