A really well scaled blend that accurately reflects prototype size and is eminently suitable for 4mm scale (OO) or HO modelling.
The “Club Tub” is a real value pack for clubs or team-build layouts – even those with larger layouts who want total consistency in their ballast supply or really good value!
If you need more than one ballast colour, but don’t want to buy 3 full tubs of each colour, then the answer is here… …1.7 litres of all 3 of our ballast colours!
The Brown Mix colour has been chosen based on field research and is suitable for heavily trafficked modern or lightly used Steam Era lines.
The Grey Mix colour has been chosen based on field research and does include a small addition of lighter and darker stones as granite ballast often includes more crystalline or darker impurities. It is suitable for newer ballast, lightly used modern or new Steam Era lines in some areas.
The “Steam Era” colour – if you did not grow up with steam, visited an active steam shed or have not researched widely in relation to the steam era, then it is hard to really appreciate just how dark, dirty and gloomy things were around steam locomotives and their facilities.
This blend has one more special feature… a “special double colouring” that you can use that will change the final result to blend transitions to suit a specific area on your layout, or your preferences.
Our carefully processed Ballast should not change tone when glue is applied using a suitable mix and wetting agent.
