Harrisburg - Steel Mill...

So this week another shipment of railroad goodies arrived from my good friend in the USA (he ships over all my eBay purchases) filled with the last lot of structures needed for the Harrisburg - Steel Mill area.

To move forward with the Steel Mill area I needed the structure kits so that I could place the physical base plates on the layout to see if the track work would work and also if it fit with the location too.

First kit was the Walthers - Electric Furnace kit.  I made up the base plates and steel framework section to check the location of the kit on the layout and also check the overall size and how looked on the section of layout it was earmarked for.

This kit is huge and makes a great view block, it is going to be located at the the entrance (on the left) to the main section of the layout.  It will have one unloading track fed from a siding and one ingot loading track that will run through the rolling mill.

Another shot looking down from the Harrisburg Industrial area towards the steel mill.

More soon as I work on the remaining kits and placement...


  1. You don't waste any time, do you. The scene is going to look great with all the big industrial buildings.

  2. You know me Alan. As soon as it was unpacked I started building the Electric Furnace...
