Highline almost done?

No way? Coming along though. I had to order 2 more packs of Evergreen angles before I can get it to paint. It will be nice to have this 11' section finally done after 5 years.

Behind the Powerplant #1 pictured I am starting the Blower Engine House #2 which will resemble the original huge one quite closely. This I felt was an important aspect for improved continuity throughout. Many original buildings in the larger mills were built at the same time and I need to get a sense of that.

Re: We want more!
Yeah sorry but I don't have any unfortunately. I don't have any time for this at present as another large project I am currently involved in takes all my available time. That I am doing for someone else.

Ancious for more...
Hi Fritz!

As a Dutch N-scale railroader, getting back into this wonderfull hobby, I was looking
for a new and fascinating theme.

Being inspired by the German steelworks in the Ruhr area and the large railroad
operations involved to keep this big business running, I decided on steel production
as being the main subject on my new railroad.

I even got more motivated by the superb steelworks model you're building
and the wondefull blog you build around it!

Altough German furnaces, cokeovens, rolling mills and so on might look a
bit different the architectical way they where build,
their layout is as much the same as u.s. steelworks.

I Like the way u use H0 buildings to integrate into the 1:160 scale
and how much detail you put into your model.

Think it's the best, allround overvieuw of steelworks and other plants involved
in steelproduction, so far and a very good building aid to all steelworks fanatics out there.

Since a blast furnace will operate 24/7 as soon as it is lit,
I would like to say:

Keep up production and the good work and please be back soon again!
Think we all miss your updates by now!

Wow Jon, that Manhattan project is a very large one! Looks like you will be busy for quite a while with that one!
