The one on the end was actually sealed by someone who tried to convert it into a dwelling.  There's a metal door frame installed in one of the doors!

As for the color, it could stand to be lightened up a bit by drybrushing some light tan on them.  Considering the Cochran charcoal kilns haven't been used for many decades, I imagine the soot has eventually weathered away.  I already dirtied my coke ovens up more than the original weathering, but maybe it's still too subtle.
