    I pretty disappointed. I discovered scenic express carries a slag ballast but I read...

    Real stone and natural aggregates. Ideal for HO-Scale. Also available in 1/2-gallon size (SS4030-6). CAUTION: Slag has a residual iron content and could cause damage to track and DCS electronics.


    Bummer.

    Look on the bright side: real slag doesn't smell very pleasant :rolleyes: , although I guess it would be appropriate if you were also modelling a sewage plant.:D In HO, it'd be pretty hard to tell if it was slag or rock ballast, if you can find a suitable colour.
