Like something from another planet, the black giants blaze against the night sky. A steady thunder of unbearable sound hammers every inch of your body. Suddenly, from deep within the menacing structure, a fierce glow of orange light rips the darkness with blazing fire. Even from here, the shimmering heat makes you turn away.
Welcome to the world of steel. From towering blast furnaces to mile-long rolling mills, these amazing facilities are some of the most fascinating - and dangerous - places on earth.
And no other industry relies as heavily on rail transportation. Whether moving raw materials, in-plant production or shipping finished products, railroads are essential to every part of the operation.
Together, this powerful combination makes steel one of the most attractive industries.

Running nonstop to feed the blast furnaces, coke ovens are an essential part of many steel mills. Here, carloads of coal are baked into coke, a high-carbon fuel used in steel making and many other industries. You'll also find coke ovens at coal mines and as stand-alone industries.

For the first time this kit also includes a larry car for charging the ovens and a quench car for moving hot coke to the quench tower. The crusher features detailed metal siding, rugged I-beam supports, safety cage ladders and other details, including a simulated dump pit to receive loads of coal. The storage bunker also features steel construction and an enclosed conveyor. The heart of the operation is the battery of coke ovens, with detailed doors, walkways, large concrete smokestack, governor house and many other parts.

Completed kit measures 28 x 19 x 14" 71.1 x 48.2 x 36cm
