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.

The yard mix is the perfect base color for my layout's yard. You can mix other colors of ballast as need to give areas of the yard a newer or older look. A.R.M ballast is easy to apply and glue. This ballast truly is great.
Terrible customer service. No response to emails or phone calls. Still haven't received products
I like the color and size of this ballast!! It stays where you put it and doesn't float around when you put water and glue on it. It's a great ballast to use in many places on the layout. I highly recommend it!!!
Great color, easy to use, wish I would have bought it sooner.
This material was everything I wanted. The color was great. The texture is just what I hoped for. I used it as cinder/crushed rock ballast on my HO scale secondary tracks and sidings. And it did not float up and move around when I wet it with diluted glue. It does get a bit darker when the glue dries, but every other product does the same thing. Once I get some more hand laid track in place I plan on getting more ballast. Bob S
