Ballast

Postby Beynac » Fri Mar 31, 2017 10:14 am

Hello gentlemen,
What kind and size of ballast do you use for your 00 gauge layouts ? I'm a little bit lost... :oops:
Many thanks for all your replies.

A popular school of thought is to use N gauge ballast for 00 gauge, and I used N gauge ballast from Cheltenham Model Centre.
