With the track on the Wesso module all done and tested it was time for ballast. I plan to finish the module as much as possible up to about 6 inches of the ends before installing it permanently in place on the layout.
For this layout I have selected the Arizona Rock & Mineral products shown in this photo. The eastbound and westbound lines will use different color ballast representing two different railroads.
Also I noticed that having the N scale ballast secured along the lower edges of the road bed help keep the main ballast from eroding when applying the 50 / 50 white glue and water solution. So I would have to say that I do like this technique and plan to use it on this layout.
