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.
 
* Now with more realistic stairways, piping and handrails!
 
Say the word steel to even the most casual observer and they picture these towering giants. Looming hundreds of feet into the skyline, their maze of pipes and equipment stands in stark contrast to the lines of newer buildings. Running nonstop, no other part of a steel works generates as much rail traffic. Hoppers bring up load after load of iron ore or taconite, coke and limestone. Hot metal cars carry the molten steel to the converters, while slag cars take their loads to the dump. Capturing the power of the prototype in a size that fits the average layout, this complete kit includes furnace, stoves, dust collectors and cleaning system, piping, cast house, hearth, skip hoist, high line supports - over 300 parts in all. Yet, it's designed for easy construction and includes complete instructions.
