Making steel is complicated, but Slab Hauler knows everyone at the steel mill and has offered to take us on a tour. We’ll meet a ladle crane, an electro-magnetic crane, a turbo train and even a fire quencher. It takes a whole team of special machines to produce steel. Making steel is a lot like baking! Dozer works with Scraper to send coal off to the coke ovens where it is turned into coke. Coke is put into a blast furnace along with iron ore and limestone, and that makes iron. Iron goes into the steel mill where it is mixed with scrap in another oven. Now turn up the temperature and … presto! It turns into big, red-hot slabs of steel. Moving the slabs of steel is Slab Hauler’s job, and he loves to show his strength by picking up stacks of them all at once.
The Mighty Machines are hard at work making tracks from the train yard, to the city, and on the highway! It all starts with the tough trains that haul cars and freight across the country. It’s no easy job to get them chuggin’! Then, Buddy the Bus shows us how he and his friends get people to work and school each day! The “O” trains, the GO trains, the subway trains and the street cars all rumble down the rails to do their part! Dig it out over here; pile it up over there! Life is a highway for Sammy the big orange shovel, Dozer and Scooper. They’re all pitching in to build a new road. So many Mighty Machines are needed to roll out a road for all the cars, trucks and buses that travel each day. All aboard for an adventure in railways and roadways!
At the Garbage Dump: City garbage trucks pick up the trash from the curb and deliver it to the transfer station where it’s rammed into special trucks to go to the landfill. Enormous tractors roll and compact the garbage before it gets covered with dirt.
