After raw gas was recovered from the Coke Retorts, it was piped to the Gas Plant for cooling and cleaning. This required several pressurized steel tanks, each handling part of the process. As newer methods of producing and improving the energy output of the gas were introduced, the plant was modernized and larger tanks constructed alongside to handle increased production.
Typical of a modernized operation, the new Gas Plant kit is a realistic blend of old and new. The kit is complete with a large main building featuring excellent brick detailing and older-style arched windows with realistic thin frames. Alongside you'll find a series of steel tanks that give the plant its unique identity.
