Ballasting Proviso Yard
Been quite a while since I last posted. Jan/Feb are very busy months at work, but I will hopefully be able to post more in the coming weeks. I finally got going on ballasting the Proviso Yard. Got about half of the yard done, the eastern end. I used a mixture of Arizona Rock and Mineral CSX and Highball Brown for the Arrival/Departure tracks and just the Highball brown for the yard tracks. Used over 2 pounds of ballast, 16 fl. oz. of alcohol and a large bottle of Elmer's glue so far. I'm very happy with the use of different colors of ballast for the mainline, A/D tracks, and yard tracks. The different colors together with the differing heights of the tracks helps to distinguish the classes of track.
