Using Model Railway Nomenclature, Applications for Granite Analogue Red Include:
Real life examples rounded to nearest actual quarried sizes.

Z Scale (1:220): Real life 100 to 150mm crushed granite - River Embankment Protection. Often referred to in the construction industry as "rip-rap". Gabion fill and broken stone scree.

N Scale (1:148): Real life 60-100mm crushed granite - Natural Scree. Badland scaping for gaming scenics.

TT Scale (1:120): Real life 50-80mm fragmented concrete - Urban Apocalypse. The perfect disaster analogue for wargame scaping.

OO/HO Scale (1:76): Real Life 30-50mm crushed granite track ballast.

Railway Board Standard 1246 Aggregates for Rail Ballast, specifies hard, clean and durable stone crushed and graded to 30-50mm. Stone specified to be free of weathered particles, organic matter and inorganic residues - just like our crushed granite analogue only in miniature !

Whilst our crushed granite analogue makes for perfectly scaled track support, it can also be used for wagon fill and loco shed stockpiles. Hundreds of thousands of tonnes of ballast were and continue to be transported each year by rail from quarries for use by permanent way maintenance crews.

O Scale (1:43): 20-30mm crushed stone - Drainage Ditches, quarry and stockpiles. An ideal textured modelling background for film and image sets and gaming badland scenics.

G Scale (1:22): 10-20mm Concrete Aggregate. In the real world the largest single application for aggregates. Our crushed granite analoge can be bound with cement, but does not provide for great strength in thin sections. Try epoxy or polyurethane resins or PVA glue to increase strength, or use as a dust free filler/extender in Jesmonite®.
From the 1970's the stone was used as demarcation for hard shoulders and central reservations of motorways North of Carlisle.

Colour & Form:
We take great care to provide accurate images, however, shade variations can occur both with the products themselves and with ambient lighting.

When used for modelling, perceived variance to colour and reflectance can occur due to base materials and adhesives used.

It can be difficult to adequately describe and visualise grain size, we do, however, show products in context with additional images.

This product option is packed in a secure weatherproof pack.
Delivery is either by post, national or international couriers. Our checkout allows for you to advise us of any delivery requirements or concerns you may have.
