Ballasting

We ballasted with a mixture of black coal dust (from the bottom of a coal bucket) and almost white coal/wood ash - mixed to a dark grey; these were sieved thoroughly before use. We applied the mix over a layer of white glue, smoothed it out carefully and then sprayed with Isopropanol (IPA) as a wetting agent and then dilute white glue (about 30% in water with a drop of detergent added). Some touching up with a dropper was required in one or two places. Other natural materials were used in off-track areas and similarly treated.
