Video: B&M NH Mainline - Preparing to Ballast the Track

Check out this video posted by a fellow model railroader
I finally started to ballast the B&M NH Mainline. I learned a few things about selecting and matching ballast and thought you all might be interested. This video explains how I chose my ballast and offers some suggestions. This is part one of the process. Later this week I will upload part two, which shares my actual ballasting process.
