N Scale Ballast Quantity

Steve asks:

“When purchasing fine ballast for N scale track, how much track can be completed with a ballast package. Or, how much should I expect to use per 3’ section of track?”

One Response to N Scale Ballast Quantity

  • mikesays:

    I never measured in that respecr. I would guess one of the small plastic bags from Woodland Scenics would do probably 12 feet of track.
