I think it looks too grungy, steel mills are usually much cleaner and shinier.
Yah right... it looks perfect, great work!!
Looking forward to seeing more pics!

Just having a closer look, what really makes the scene come to life is the junk and clutter!
I'm in a steel mill about every other day and they use pretty much every inch of real estate they can!

Just awesome. It reminds me of some of the industries I visited on a railfanning trip to the Great Lakes in the 1960's, ending with a visit to the Buffalo Creek Railway in Buffalo New York.

Looks like it will need a lot of rail service!! Also, the size of it looks realistic, too, fwiw. Keep those photos coming!
