| Superior Paper Co.
Paper mills are some of the busiest
spots along the railroads that serve them. Tons of raw materials arrive in specialized
cars including woodchip gons and pulpwood flats, along with a variety of chemicals
and slurries that are shipped in tank cars. Finished products are also shipped
by rail, typically in special service box cars.
The Superior Paper kit
comes with two complete buildings to begin operations, which could also be used
to model a variety of other industries. The first step in paper-making is the
kraft (German for strength) mill, where wood is transformed into pulp. This modern
steel structure is complete with large smokestacks and a variety of other details.
(Used by itself, this building makes a great modern powerhouse for an electric
utility or major industry.) Pulp is processed in the Main Building, a large brick
structure that's complete with pulp vats, loading docks, separate windows and
many other details. Detailed instructions are provided for the entire complex,
along with colorful sign decals.
Sized right to look right on any railroad,
this modern industry is perfect for use with the 60' Pulpwood Cars.
