Nice! looks great! :) I'm doing something similar on my railroad..I really like the look of keeping a firm line between the ballast and the rest of the railroad..
yes, it's not prototypical! ;) but IMO it looks better in the long run, because ballast just "on the ground" with nothing to contain it tends to blur and blend into the surrounding landscape over time, and IMO it ends up looking messy and unkempt..unlike prototype ballast, its difficult to keep in place! ;) unless you deliberately contain it with an edge.

Here is some of my edging, im using PVC lattice strips:

Great idea, nice way of ensuring that the layout will work as you want it before doing any major work
