FROM THE BACK COVER: To the men and women who toil here it's called "The Works." It's a place where your senses are hammered by 3000-degree heat. By the ear-piercing shriek of oxygen blown into molten iron. By the constant thunder of towering machinery. Few outsiders dare enter this nightmare world. For this is where steel is born in the red-hot glow of a hundred suns. And since no other industry relies so heavily on railroads, it's ideal as the theme of a new layout or as an add-on industry to your present operations. You'll go behind the scenes, for a firsthand look at the fascinating process of steel making. Your journey starts in the dust of the ore and coal mines, the limestone quarries and the scrap yards. You'll feel the intense heat of the coke ovens and the blast furnaces. Ride along with the switcher crews moving glowing hot metal cars. And to really give you a taste of life on the inside, we spend a day at the USS/Kobe Steel Company works at Lorain, Ohio. We'll also look at how the steel industry and America grew up together. Plus, a detailed glossary explains slang and technical terms you'll hear inside "The Works." Finally, we'll show you how you can recreate what you've seen for your model railroad. Practical ideas help you plan large or small operations, using easy-to-build structures, rolling stock, locomotives, vehicles and other kits. Remember, steel works are off-limits to visitors and photographers, so this is an essential reference for your model building! Now, join us inside "The Works!"
