Basic Oxygen Furnace Part 1

The Basic Oxygen Furnace or (BOF) for short has been a 5 year project. As of now even with being a corner building on my layout it is still the biggest. I keep detailing this building more and more. I have thought about completely redoing it at times after thinking about it I really like how it is turning out.

Scrap crane on the scarp side of the BOF. At this area scrap from the gondolas will be loaded in scrap charging boxes use to pour the scrap into the BOF furnaces.
