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.

    1171 & 1172 Mauve Ballast N & HO

    I first tried ARM ballast when I could no longer get supplies of Highball ballast. I found ARM ballast to be so much better than Highball and I am very glad I made the change. I used 1302 and 1171 ballasts for my Santa Fe layout. The ballast is very consistent in size and easy to spread. It stays in place when gluing down and doesn’t float away. I thoroughly recommend it.
