SCRATCH BUILD: Having completed Two Train Stations, scatter terrain for a train station and a Train Engine with coal storage carriage, it was obvious the next project was going to be "Train Tracks". follow the link for info, images and tutorial:

Excellent job - and equally good tutorial. Well done, Mr Bond - an MBE* in the New Years' Honours, I think.

Simple and superb.
I shall pay tribute to the recycled sprue trackrail idea by plagiarising it

Very nice!

An alternative approach that I've had some success with in the past is to nudge the ballast into place with a dry paint brush and then use a eye-dropper to drip on water-diluted PVA mixed with a tiny amount of washing-up liquid. Capillary action does a great job of distributing the glue between the grains of ballast.
