Switching scrap metal gons at US Steel - Houghschnaegel Works

Loads in, empties out - never a dull moment at the basic oxygen furnace mill.

The loco is a Bachmann Spectrum GE 44-tonner, gondolas are a mix of Athearn and MDC, and the figures are from a Preiser construction crew; the hot metal 'submarine' car is a Walthers kit, the building is from a kitbashed Walthers Electric Furnace (now out of production), the downcomer pipe and support frame are scratchbuilt from Plastruct materials.
Very nice work! I love when the buildings tower over the trains, great looking concrete too.
I like the build up of skull on the torpedo car, hope mine turns out like yours
