Track ballast forms the trackbed upon which railroad ties (sleepers) are laid. It is packed between, below, and around the ties. It is used to bear the load from the railroad ties, to facilitate drainage of water, and to keep down vegetation that might interfere with the track structure. The ballast also holds the track in place as the trains roll over it. It consists of crushed stone. The term “ballast” comes from a nautical term for the stones used to stabilize a ship.

Short Line Ballast

I was looking for the old "Highball" black cinder ballast but the company is gone so found out about ARM ballast. I sent for one package and liked the appearance so bought what I hope will do most of my layout. I like that it has the orange flecks like the clinkers found on the old B&O line I remember as a kid. I sure beats the ground walnut shells that another major manufacturer sells! Good customer service and I would recommend this particular product.
