Ash ballast.



Spent Wednesday covering everything with what looked like Cornish china clay, but was far less romantic: Hobbycraft air-drying modelling clay.  It gets everywhere.  However, I filled the 'four foot' almost to my satisfaction, and must now pluck up courage to attempt not to glue up a point.  Thankfully, it takes about a fort-night to dry, and it is freezing cold and snowing outside, so a good reason to find something else to do, or at least start wondering whether the cracks will show under a couple of layers of acrylic paint.






Such a shame I had to dismantle everything for this task.  It all looks so offensively untidy!

Looking good - I used this technique on my n gauge shunting layout 'Seahaven' and was really pleased with the results.
