This little tool will save you HOURS of work!
Simply place on the track to be ballasted. Fill the device with your ballast and slide along the track to produce a perfect finish to your now smartly ballasted trackwork.
Two feet of track finished in less than 15 seconds!
Works on both straight and curved track, but not on pointwork or crossings.

Available in most gauges.
Please note - if ordering a 4mm version you will need to state via a 'drop down box' option, whether your rail is code 75 or code 100. The Ballast Mate is designed for code 100 but we supply a small kit with those choosing a code 75 rail version. This consists of two strips of plastikard which are attached to the device (with double sided tape - supplied) to ensure that the difference in height between codes 75 and 100 rail is accounted for.
