BESSEMER PLANT - Part 1
Starting the month off at a run with two posts in one night. I'll speak more of the Bessemer Plant in future posts as I am still working on the layout . I would like to have three converters as that appears to have been the practice in the twilight of Bessemer steel(1940-50s), and while I was working on the gas producer parts I figured I'd give it a shot and turn the converter. I had thought about buying a few of the converter kits from Chuck Pravic ,which based on the rolling mill kits that I have bought from him, are probably excellent models, however, I like scratchbuilding so I'm going to make my own and cast duplicates as needed.
