    As part of my expanded cement works based around the Walthers Valley Cement kit the block of 8 silos becomes an intermediate storage for the raw ground clinker. This will feed the fine crushing and mixing plant in which gypsum is added to control cement setting times.

    I have added that post mix and a pre-mix stage where silica sand will be added to expand my rail traffic to the cement works, I have been amazed at the complexity of cement manufacture and the size of real plants while researching this mini-project so have just added two of the basic extras to make a plausible attempt at a 1960's era works. Admittedly using American style buildings but scratch building everything would take too much time.

    The kiln assembly was a work in progress when these pictures were taken, and updates will follow shortly.
