Grant, you sir, are a truly dedicated modeler, and my hat is off to you!  Could you please advise what size sieves you use? Your idea for cinders is brilliant: would it work for the ash pit? Or would you suggest something else?

For stone ballast, I use 2 sieves to screen quarry sand from N&W
quarries. For cinders, I dye plain sand black and screen through the
smaller sieve.
