    Im also interested in getting some "dirt" the stuff looks pretty cool and realistic lol

    I need to get some BNSF, UP, and M&ET track ballast. M&ET's ballast is pretty simply and looks pretty much like BNSF ballast so i think i can get away with using the same ballast for both lol but it would look cool to have different shades where the 2 meet.

    the Bulk Shipping is a good deal too :thumb: :mrgreen:

    There's a guy making the rounds of the shows West of TO. He's a Micro-Mark distributor, I think he calls himself "Hobbyworx".

    He has his own line of scenery products, especially fine ballast and earth. I have a bag of "Ontario Limestone" #1 ballast, which is as fine as Highball, but not as white. It was $4 for a 1 lb bag.

    I remember that guy and was checking out his stuff last year. I think I will definitely have to make the trip over to Mississauga this year and check out his booth again. He had a lot of cool stuff.

    I was actually thinking about him when I replied to this thread. :thumb:

    I have always used WS but would be open to something that looks better.

    WS is what the local hobby shop in the area I was living at the time carried so that is what I used.
