Hi Michael,

If you are planning burying everything in sand, you can use the cheaper code 100 track.

Try working out how big the rail is from more than 12" away when you do something like this -

On another forum, good results have been had using tile grout as fine ballast/sand.
This can be had in a range of colours and in larger sized quantities from hardware tiling supply stores than "usual" model train ballast options.
The usual wet water/PVA glue mix will make sure nothing moves after glue is applied.
Before the glue sets, make sure you have your flangeways and rail head clear of wet grout.
Once the glue sets it will take a hammer and a small chisel to clear out the flangeways.
