Ballasting Rhiw 2

 As per usual the ballast is almost the last of the major items to complete. Always a joy and nothing unusual. The chips are dropped on dry and pushed into place with the finger tip before damping with a water spray and then dropping dilute PVA on. There are large areas to fill as by it's nature Rhiw 2 is largely trackbed of one sort or another. I decided that I'd use the standard method around the existing track and treat the rest as ordinary scenic covering. Incidentally, the two colours are Peco 'dirty' for the newly laid areas and a mix of 'dirty' and 'cinders' (even after panto) for the older exchange track.
