Here is the coke plant named after my friend Dick Anderson, a NARA member. It is based and an excellent article writen by Dean Freytag that is spread through the April,June,and August 1991 issues of model railroader. Deans model is in HO. Mine is N gauge. What the coke plant does is crushes coal then burns it in ovens until coke is formed. The coke is then drenched to cool it down. After the process is complete it is delivered to the blast furnaces of the CISCO steel plant. Dick created this business opportunity in the industrial city of Abercom which is served by the MAT railroad. Dick has had years of experience in the coal industry and it is through his knowledge and leadership that the Anderson Coke Plant has become a thriving industry The first structure is the coal crushing tower followed by the coal bunker. Coal is delivered by an electrical hopper system that picks up coal from the bunker and delivers it to the top-loading ovens. Each oven has three feeding hatches. All gasses from the oven are piped to a high chimney seen in the background. Once the coke is ready, the front door of the oven opens and a pusher unit moves the coke out the back door into a hopper and it then moves to the quenching tower where the red hot coke is cooled by a flow of water. From there, it is ready to transport to the blast furnaces.
