OO Gauge Layout – ballasted.

I took advantage of the lovely weather today and decided to ballast both boards of the new OO end to end layout. I had planned to lay the ballast and glue today and tidy it all up tomorrow. In practice, I managed to do the lot in one day due to the temperature. One thing to remember is that this was achieved by working in the shade – please don’t try this in direct sunlight as the rails could warp.

I would normally not ballast until after I had done the basic scenery, but again I have not received the polystyrene or Modroc so doing things a bit out of order.
