Over the past few weeks I’ve ballasted the main lines and Up lay-by. I used Woodland scenics’ medium grey blend. It’s a bit courser than I’d like but it’s recycled from the old layout and in my usual penny pinching ways, I didn’t want to throw away the old ballast. I washed it and then let it all dry for a few days before laying it. Today I glued it all and most of it seems to have stuck but there are a few bits that need topping up with ballast or a bit more glue.

 

Before laying the ballast, I painted the track dark brown.

The goods yard will be ballasted using a mixture of sand (to represent ash/soil) and black and grey ballast.
