If you've never ballasted track, the process can seem a bit daunting. But it really isn't that difficult after all. This video shows one quick and simple method for ballasting track. My teenage son, who has not ballasted track before we shot this video, is the demonstrator here. If he can do it, so can you.
One quick side note, this video does not deal with the problems of ballasting around switch points. That will be addressed in future posts.
