I've found that once the ballast is in place, spray with water with a drop of washing up liquid in it using one of those fine misting bottles.  Don't use one that blows the ballast away or you'll have to start again. 

Wet a few feet at a time and then either spray or I prefer using a syringe to drop the 50% PVA/water mix onto the ballast between  the sleepers a sleeper at a time, fiddly but you don't risk blowing the ballast out of position and once you get a rhythm it is very quick to do and you don't get glue everywhere.

The syringe I use was originally from a printer ink refill kit but you can buy similar from a chemist.

Spent a couple of hours today getting plastered ...  :confused1:

Means that I can now start to plan out where things are going to go, like the Station and other buildings, road, fencing etc etc ...

Cheers  :beers:

Looks good.

Don't you just love plastering, so tactile, if not messy. And you get an immediate sense of terrain. This just transformed my layout in a matter of hours before my eyes.

Not sure I would ever want to become a plasterer though now I've had the experience...
