I taught a class at the MER Convention this October 21st in Raleigh. The title was “Speed Ballasting & Great Trackwork in Less Time“. Quickly installing track and ballasting that will perform well and look great is something that many modelers struggle with. This class shows how to do both accurately, yet rapidly. In this class, I showed how I ballast and glued 3 feet of track in 15 minutes. The second class was on “Improve lighting for your layout room” . I showed how to improve of the lighting using LEDs on the railroad.
