Hi all,
After considering the ballasting on the layout i am contemplating making a ballast wagon (a large american hopper is ideal to carry a good amount of ballast) to distribute it evenly over the track and have some kind of whacker to shake the ballast down before fixing in another wagon following it.
Has anyone an idea how i could create this action to cause a vibration enough to settle the ballast but not derail the wagon, it doesnt have to be powered wagon from the track as a battery or similar supply could be used on wires.

Know this is only an idea but it would save a lot of sprinkling and create a uniform finish ready for the PVA mix.
