    Hi guys, I am going to be building the Walthers N scale Coke Oven & Quencher to go with my Steel Mill Module.

    Here is what it looks like:

    Here is the trackplan to show were the Coke Oven will be going:

    I just ordered the Coke Oven from Mike at Fifer Hobby but I have to wait for the 2 Rolling Mills I ordered from him to arrive from Walthers so he can ship them all at once. I should have the Coke oven by the end of April or early May.

    Stay Tuned guys
