    The C&HV has picked up a new customer that will be receiving steel coils.The M.J.Nash Corp located in the Jackson,Ohio Industrial Park(only in my N scale world)..This company manufactures steel grave vaults and is expected to received 20- 25 loads of steel a week..Steel had been received by truck for many years..
    There are plans to ship some loads some time in the future. :thumb: So M.J. Nash Corp may come calling to your steel manufacturing company. :thumb: :D

    How did you make those coils? Custom-cast or are they like small-gauge steel pipe?

    Brakie, that's a unique industry! Looking forward to hearing more!

    Siderod, the coils are former mag wheels for model cars that I found in a bin at a liquiidator store for about a dime a piece. A little silver paint was all it took to turn them into coils. They are just slightly larger than commercially available HO coils but nicely fit in my gondolas.

    Shaygetz, special orders don't upset us! :)
