A few more minutes to spend on the layout this evening and the track is weathered enough to be ready for ballast. I’m a little nervous of this next step and how well my foamcore benchwork will do with all that white glue and water spread over top. I am taking some comfort from knowing that the ballast won’t be too thick so there won’t be as much water everywhere.
For the ballast itself I’ll be using a mix of Woodland Scenics “Fine” grade ballast in a few light colours.
I’ll try to get home over lunch tomorrow and grab a quick photo or two to share here so you can see the progress so far.
