Although I use Peco On30 track, I'm with Harold - I prefer what looks right. Here is an example of Peco track I have ballasted

On this one, the track ties are visible but nobody has yet said "Gee, your ties are too skinny" Smiley
PS - no, the tunnel portal is not at an angle - the camera was though Smiley

Harold,

I like the HO track method myself but I do it a bit differently. I use the rail and hand-lay on On3 ties. Pretty easy there. I use Atlas switches modified to be laid on On3 swith ties.  I remove the plastic HO ties from the switch and then lay the remaining rails and frog on the ties. My portable module has trackwork done this way and it has proven to be easy to wire and operate. I cheat on my On3 layouts but use #6 or #8 switches for that project.
