Hi guys, I was talking to my grandpa about starting my steel mill finally. You might member this plan that I did a while back for a smaller layout that was going to go under my HO layout well I was talking about it and my grandpa wanted to help me build the layout. I said well where are we going to put it because we have to build it at his house and he said well what bout in your room that you have at our house. I was like okay :mrgreen: :mrgreen: I also mentioned makeing a bigger layout table for the steel mill, he said that was a good idea since the plan looked a lil crambed in there. I made a layout the size of my HO layout that I currently have at my house (which by the way has nothing on it at this point, will be taken down for my new layout) so i said why not just use my old HO layout table for the new N scale Steel Mill, already have the benchwork built and everything, he said sure, would make it easyer and we could start on it sooner too :mrgreen: :mrgreen: I came up with this N scale plan to fit on my HO layout in RTS and here it is: The tracks are all labeled so its pretty self explanitory. Up in the warehouse tracks is a Heavy Duty Overhead crane to unload/load flatcars and gondolas for the warehouse and there is also a loading dock for boxcars right next to the warehouse Blast Furnace = 2 Walthers kits bashed together to make a HUGE building. I have the blast furnace already built but it is only one blast furnace kit, I want 2 of them bashed together, going to sell the one I have now and buy 2 more kits and bash them together Coke Oven and Quencher tower = Walthers kit which I already have built Electric Furnace = Walthers Kit Rolling Mill = 2 Walthers Kits bashed into one long mill which I also already have built. Warehouse = 4 Walthers Allied Rail Rebuilders kits bashed into one long warehouse building. Concrete loading dock is right next to building and an overhead crane is in front of the warehouse. Coal Mine = 2 Walthers New River Mining Company kits bashed into one large mine What do you guys think of our new plan? I showed it to him and he said he loves it and cant wait to get started on it. Layout table is 6'x2.5'x12'x2.5' with small extention (coal mine) measuring 15"x4'
