The Thomas coke oven battery scales out at about 66" long. The ovens take up less space but the 66" number includes the coal bunker, and a service area at the opposite end for maintaining the door and guide cars, along with storage of five spare doors. Do to width constraints I won't be able to model the pusher side and will have to back the model right up to the elevated main. Hopefully, with the main line tracks hidden and adding overhead gas mains, won't give away this compromise too readily.

Next I'll add the brick to the top and using styrene sheet, strips, and resin cast doors, model the oven face.
