Current roster of coke oven rolling stock. More is planned. Check out my page of prototype cokers and quenching cars.
I intend to build a model of a by-product coke oven complex reminiscent of the Kentucky-Solvay plant in Ashland prior to its 1953 expansion. It won't be a totally accurate model due to a lack of complete information and the availability of model parts. Besides, I like to kit bash with a dose of modelers license :). The complex will have coal handling facilities, two batteries of 36 ovens, larry car, pusher, door machines, and selectively compressed by-product recovery facilities
To model two batteries of 36 ovens will require me to make molds for an 18 oven side and top. I have two Walthers kits now, but they are too expensive to buy more just for the few parts I need, so it will be rubber mold and resin casting, plus some Plastruct tubing parts to get the required parts. When I have the molds made, I may sell the parts for others to extend their Walthers Coke Oven kits. Let me know if you are interested.
