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.

Big Fan of This Product.

The first time I saw AZ Rock and Mineral ballast in a hobby shop was ages ago. I tried it and was hooked on the ease of creating realistic scenes with 6 grades of the same material ranging from fine sand to fairly large rocks. I found mixing N scale and HO scale ballasts together really gives a super fine look to the trackwork; I use one bag of N to either two or three bags of HO ballast, just for a bit more variety, or you could just sprinkle some N over the HO ballast if you prefer. Being an SP modeler I've used that type of ballast at home and on a club layout I worked on and got great results every time. I find that rock looks a lot more like rock than walnut shells ever could, try this and I'll bet you will agree with me.
