Happy Sunday All I am really keen on the idea of a Viaduct, but I am at the planning stage, and this is the important stage with a permanent structure! as you all know
but I have read so many ideas about "Ballasting". The question is which ever way you choose to lay your track, how do you lay track on a Model Viaduct? Passed Driver

Kevin, on my viaduct, using Peco flex track, I pinned it to the cardboard that makes up the viaduct with Peco SL14 track pins, then ballast in the "normal" manner using watery PVA - of course the entire viaduct was sprayed first with  matt varnish to protect the paper & card from moisture.

I guess I could have glued the track down with a few dobs of contact cement/PVA, etc but pinning it allowed me to ballast straight away.
