Added dirty gas main from B-Furnace (lower pipe)  It transitions with five degree angles to attach to precipitators.   The lower pipe is supported by a roof extension of the slag track cast house awning.  This also supports upper pipe using a steel frame tower.  A minor kitbash of the Walthers conveyor kit made quick work of this.
Downcomers attached

Platforms - adding the lower service platform to the dirty gas side of the precipitators.

What do you do about the wood texture? are you going to varnish it or seal it somehow before painting? im curious to see what the painted and weathered finish looks like

Good question Jeremy - I've had good experience with spraying wood with Rustoleum Grey Auto Body primer. This is a sandable primer - sand with 320 grit sandpaper between multiple coats and it will leave a very smooth finish. The trouble is, I should have sprayed the wood dowels first as sanding them now will be a little hard. If you remember on the gas collecting main on the coke works I did just that.
