Just came across a video using dry adhesive to ballast track.What has been your results? Also it seems a bit expensive for the amount offered.

How about a link to the video, so people know what product you are referencing?.

Looks interesting. According to the British Railway Modeler video, it works and is probably worth the expense. Had I know about this product when I was ballasting< I most likely would have made a purchase'...I would be interested in the powder version....for dioramas..

If I were to guess, I would say they buy just Powder White Glue from China called Fu-Long, that is sold in Brown , White, or Yellow colors and re-package, then call it a hobby item and sell at top dollar.

I would be really careful of the 'nanometre plastic cement glue powder'. Like 'full respirator, wash clothes & shower after' careful.

I think the only drawback with powdered glue (Cascamite, Weldwood) is, unlike diluted PVA, once you activate it with water, your track is down for good. So, it's full commitment. I don't know if the British ballast glue Bernd linked to, or the Chinese stuff, can be reactivated with water once it's cured. IIRC, John Olson built an MR project layout and used Weldwood to put the track down onto an extruded foam base. Worth searching for if you're curious.

Fine, sir. Thanks for asking. Will send you a note so as not to tie up this thread.
