We have had a couple of folks asking about how we ballast the rails on the BSR. So, we figured we’d make a Sidetracked episode about it. Please enjoy and and say hi in the comment section!
In this episode of Sidetracked, host Steve Brown takes us through the process of ballasting a small section of track on the Brownsmith Railroad. This is the piece of track we installed in place of the turnout that used to lead to the old sawmill.
This technique works for Z Scale, N Scale, HO Scale, or any other scale. If you are into model railroading, then this is something you will definitely benefit from. So what you we waitin’ for? Let’s get started right now!
