    I will cast my vote for:

    Wapandpee

    (maybe I should use that on my own layout instead)

    Well there is also a Moose Factory, named after the Hudson's Bay Trading Post (often called "Factory" in late English of the time)

    The quaint town of Moose Butte sounds nice me thinks.

    Been down the Moose to Moosonee, its flat and the trees only get 20 feet high there. And Moose Jaw, Broadview, Moosomin too, they all sing another prairie tune.

    I'd go for Moose Butte but in this case drop the e.

    How about Bois Royaux (French for "Royal Antlers"). Anglicized and amended over time to Bay Royale.

    Moose crew do ballast repairs on layout, in all of these areas:

    Hopefully, this time, Moose get glue dilution better proportioned so ballast no come up again.

    Note to Moose self: Open window next time ballasting; the alcohol fumes leave Moose with uncomfortable feeling in head!

    Looking good and one step closer to trains running

    I used diluted water based wood glue with a few drops of washing up liquid to break down the surface tension. No bad odors and everything securely fixed in place.

    Keep up the good work.
    Thanks, Tom

    Moose had used a few drops of dish washing liquid, but some how that did not work...

    Moose will have to do some experimenting to figure out the magic proportions that achieved the nicely ballast work Moose had with the first area ballast oh so looong ago, and do a second coverage in these repair areas...
    Oh, the joy of ballasting...

    Mean while, a disease'el was spotted in the area and quickly chased off!

    One of the joys of modeling a snowscape, no ballasting

    Try more washing up liquid ?

    Good luck, and remember, it's fun

    Could it be that you didn't pre-wet your ballast enough before hitting it with glue mixture? If your ballast is too dry when you glue it, the glue won't penetrate all the way through which can cause crumbling and lifting when it's dry.
