Eric, thanx for posting those pics of Rex's blast furnace, especially that closeup of the cast house with the hopper cars in the background. [Does your camera have an automatic depth-of-field adjuster on it? Seems like it does...]

... Looking at the pictures makes me want to get back into that area and start working again... I believe it would be a good break from all the mountain building.
Rex, those are mountains - just not the 'natural' kind! :D

When I'm done latexing the layout's bare surfaces, I'll start taking mine out of their boxes and putting them back into position. Then I too can contribute some model pics to this thread!


Ha! Ha! Ken you are sooo right! I believe the steel industry site could keep me climbing for a long time. Heck, it seems that the more I do the more mountainous my projects get.
