Steel is Back and Better than Ever!
Rolling mills are some of the largest and most prominent structures in a steel mill complex. Tall in stature and as long as a quarter mile, these giant corrugated-metal buildings house the machinery that takes raw steel ingots and forms them into usable shapes. They're heavily dependent on rail service--ingots arrive by rail and products like coils and wire leave in coil cars and gondolas.
This kit includes walls, support trusses, soaking pit details and a four-high reversing mill stand complete with rolling table, motor and walkway details. The interior of the walls have molded cut lines allowing easy removal of lower side wall sections to reveal the interior, just as on the prototypes. The base has molded plastic rail embedded in the floor, soaking pit details and mill stand supports.
Rolling mills are located at many steel mill complexes, but they can also be used as stand-alone facilities. This structure is also similar to buildings used for vehicle and railcar assembly, metal smelting and fabrication, refractories and more, so this versatile structure will have a home on any layout.
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.
And Walthers makes it easy to model!
