code 80 rail is tall, too tall to be a realistic representation. that said I used it for my first layout, it was pretty good I just wish I was better at laying track. it also allows pizza cutter wheels. Code 55 rail is more realistic, nice and low.

How do I remove the ballast from my track?

Once all ballasting is completed test the track again as you will have small grains of ballast where they should not be, and will have glue on your track. Small bits of ballast can be carefully removed with a scalpel blade, but take care. PVA glue on your track can also be removed carefully using a knife blade.

How long does ballasting last?

Ballasting can take a long time, but if done correctly will last for years and will enhance any model railway layout. Badly laid ballast will spoil any layout, and will be hard to remove once applied.

How do you fix a leaky ballast?

Do not water log the ballast and be careful not to wash the small granules away. Once wet, apply a 50-50mix of water and PVA adhesive, again with a small drop of washing up liquid using the eye dropper to the ballast. You should be able to watch the adhesive mix flow and soak into the ballast.
