    Love the color and the texture!

    Perfect to simulate the older ballast on my railroad. This base will have the black over it like the railroad I'm modeling.

    Kinzua ballast

    This was a re-order since I'd run out. I must like it :-). It took a while to get it, since the vendor was ill and whoever stepped in sent it to the wrong place. But my previous orders have all been promptly sent to the right place and I suspect the good service will resume soon, since I'll undoubtedly being ordering more products from them in the future.


    Kinzua ballast is used on most railroads around the United States. Most railroads don’t use one color or color for their ballast. If your railroad has a mix of colors in their ballast, buy this. The color changes from run to run and bag to bag but is mostly the same color from any run.

    Track ballast forms the track-bed 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, facilitate drainage of water, and 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.
