1  Discussion Boards / General Discussion / How To Ballast EZ TRACK Tutorial on: February 17, 2019, 02:10:32 AM
After much testing and thought, I wanted to share how I've found a way to Ballast EZ-TRACK without it looking like a powdery mess on your layout. For me this worked. Advise practice on a few tracts after watching my video. But my work around to Ballast EZ-TRACK in minutes will work.

Sharing this Video Tutorial I created:

IMPORTANT: One should only Ballast EZ Track after you are 100% Confident your layout is in place. Leave the sections you are unsure if they will change as unballasted. This video may not work for everyone, but I feel its the best simplist video out there that doesn't make EZ-TRACK look like a powder mess when ballasting EZ-TRACK.

Just trying to help out fellow modelers and save them some time.

Enjoy Everyone!

Kind Regards...

Thanks everyone. After much debate we decided to keep the Steamer. Even though the smoke unit doesn't work, It just looked too good on our layout. And yes, other Steamers with smoke Units are great for kids watch ooh-ing and ahhh-ing but for the Railroad Modeler, IT DOES MAKE AN OILY MESS

Here's a Twitter Link:

Thanks again everyone.

Hi All
Need some advise,
I purchased a really beautiful never opened sealed Bachmann 660 HO Santa Fe #3781 Northern 4-8-4 Steam Locomotive with Smoke from Ebay. Its in excellent condition but the Smoke drops do not activate the Smoke Unit. I even let it run for an hour and still NO SMOKE. The Locomotive had been sealed for many years never opened.

QUESTION TO THE FORUM: Any suggestions to get the smoke unit to work? Could the Smoke Fluid be too old even if sealed for many years? Do I try more recent Smoke Fluid Purchased from Bauchmann which is Bauchmann Item No. 00251 ? Please addvise? Thx
