I've seen N scale ground throws used on HO layouts and they look more "scale" than the HO ones. Go figure. I like manual ground throws, and I'll bet you're right about weathering & ballasting your -- they'll look fine.Josh,
The ground throws work great. The only thing is they are a bit out of scale but with some weathering and ballast i don't think they will look to bad.
