New pictures I got out the old camera.



I've added the coke ! You can see the coke conveyors and elevators which carry coke from below the coke trestle to the melt shop. I'm just starting to work on the forge shop

Larry, I can almost hear it, smell it. The dirt and grime brings back memories of my industrial days.

Thanks Rex. I grew up in Bridgeport Connecticut in the 1950s. Over 400 different industries in that town! I could stop on my way home from school and watch them drop the bottom on a cupola furnace and hose down the coke. I could feel the blast of heat...It was soooooooo cool ! I was hooked !

It's HO scale

Been working on my foundry for about two years. Just added a re-heating furnace to the forge shop. It has three flicker circuits...one for each door. Looks so cool.....thanks to this web site...http://www.awrr.com/flicker.html and Radio Shack.
My good camera is broken but I should be able to take more pictures soon.
