In Norway in the 60's, the norwegian state railways used mostly sand for ballast. I've tried to replicate this the last couple of days, and now 2 of the 3 sections that make up Grimstad are completely ballasted. I'm not entirely happy with it, but it will do for now. I will later weather the track and ballast, and that'll hopefully lead to the look i'm after.

To the left in this picture you can see the recess i've made for the water, which will make up a nice harbour scene eventually.

It looks very nice to me. Why aren't you happy with it?

My mix of sand colours has too many red "dots" in it from using a type of red sand with a little too much iron in it I think. However I think it will work fine with a little bit of weathering and grass tufts here and there :)
