I use AR&M ballast and some of their other products on the Wilmington. There's a wide variety of colors and sizes. For me there is no comparison between their product and, ahem, ground up walnut shells.
The downside is that it can be difficult to locate. I would "export" it from The Train Shop in Santa Clara, California via that convenient Flat Rate Priority Mail box... the one time that using it is actually cost-effective!
Thanks for the input. Ran out of thanks button.
