    Realistic ballast to use for gauge one?

    Bob I just had a thought .. what if you laid some fabric ( weed block ) along the deck so the gravel will not fall between the sections causing separation and keeping the water letter outers gravel free..... Just a thought ..

    Bob The Titebond III will be good .. you can easily break it up if need be , Titebond when soaked in is a little flexible ( use some dish soap , and mix 50/50 ) you can adjust the mix to your liking.. I usually will do this on the outside of the gravel to hold the loos middle gravel in place, like a wall, letting the gravel drain thru the bottom and let the track move or expand . The Portland cement forms a hard skin ( if you sprinkle it on top, or hard as a rock when mixed in with grout) Looking at your first video's cover shot, I see rails ..I do not think you need the Titebond III to keep it in place... You did incorporate water letter outers... didn't you ...

    I use a 3/8 granite ..here they call it rice stone, as long as it's not rounded (pee stone is NO good ) it has to lock into each other. Stone dust is another, I use to get it from Home Crapo, in bags, it will splash up onto the tracks...

    Ballast For A New Garden Railroad

    Take a sample of the stone dust home ( 5 gallon ) and make a test trench and lay some track and see how it holds up. I have used it, it will splash up onto the track initially causing you to clean the track ..some mix it 50/50 with Type III bond glue . This forms a shell like thing ..it can be hit with a hammer to break up, after a soaking..
