Hey there Ben,

Hope you and your dad are enjoying this fine hobby of ours also welcome to MRF.

Common practice is to first glue the rails to either the baseboard or track roadbed then pin it down. Once the glue has dried up, you then take all the pins out and start ballasting.

If you haven't, just paint the traversers along with the pin heads the same color, possibly brownish, so that the pin head will blend with the traversers color and then when ballasting you can apply a wee bit of more ballast to the area where the pin head is, hiding it.

Hope this helps.
