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.

Well, the coke plant is complete...it's good to know the smelter at Sonora Grande will have all the fuel it needs for its furnaces...
