    I wish I had more details, but I have bought N scale slag car kits from Peachtree Shops in Laurel, MD. The owner is a big steel mill fanatic in HO but has several products made for N. A slag car kit is one of them.... I will try to find more info and post. They do have a web site - peachtreeshops.com I think....

    All the best!

    Didn't Walther's steelmill kits have those available when they released it in N?? I know they had some bottle cars avail, but no slag cars? What kind of steel mill doesn't make slag int he process of manufacturing steel??:confused:

    Hey BorgCube,

    I apologize, I did a bit of a search of my own and even looked at my N scale kits.... They are ingot cars... Made by Peachcreek shops....

    As in peachcreekshops.com Look at this address -

    http://www.peachcreekshops.com/genprods.php3?val=N Scale Steel Mill Kits

    The ingot cars are what I thought you meant....


    sorry for the confusion. Maybe this will direct you in ways you didnt realize....

    All the best!
