Ballast Colours in the Benelux/Germany region

1120 Views 3 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  Brian Considine
Wondering if colleagues modeling the Belgian railway might be able to tell me this... what ballast colours are most suitable for the border regions of Belgium/Netherlands/Luxembourg/Germany?

Thanks for any advice you may be able to provide!

Have a look at the gallery of dbclass50 - that's set in Belgium.

I had a look at the ballast whilst travelling across the country a couple days ago... from what I could see there was quite a large mixture between a red and grey melange, and cemet grey coloured ballast...

Hopefully dbclass50 can give some insight

The ballast colours on St.Laurent are as chosen by the original builder (for those that are unaware St.Laurent was originally built by Bill Roberts & given a makeover by BRITHO & I).

AFAIK the ballast colours are correct for this part of Belgium.
