    I'm coming up with some rough ideas of this 3' x 12' section of the new layout. I'm not going to get too involved, until I finish the ceiling and walls in this freezing cold garage. I have scratch built two rolling mills (or whatever they are used for), from pics I took of the Edgar Thomson steel mill in Braddock, Pa. Track plan will be a simple main line going around the mill tracks. Main will be CSX, mill tracks will be Union Railroad. I really enjoy scratchbuilding and weathering right now.

    Nice work on the BF’s, they really look great. Do you have any plans to integrate the BF high line into you existing track plan? I ask because I’ve ordered two BF’s myself and I’m continuously looking at how I’ll handle this also.

    That's already shaping up to be a terrific scene. You can't go wrong with that big steel industry!

    no highline

    Actually I'm only going to use one blast furnace. The rusted falling apart one is for a abandoned/demolished representation of Carrie furnace in Rankin, Pa. As for the high line, you cant see it from the main in real life, so I wont need it on layout, even though I scratch built a 2 ft long one from plastruct.

    Work is slowing down as the garage is freaking cold!!
