High Fidelity OO/HO Scale dark grey railway track ballast. Providing for exacting realism and the ability to create without compromise.

Primary Colour and Source: Dark grey limestone the mainstay of Northern railways both pre-war and into the 1960's. Typically sourced from Pennine limestone quarries from Matlock to Teesdale. Whilst stone from the lancashire quarries was a natural black in color, pollution and weathering soon turned this ballast a black.

This product also provides a high fidelity analogue for blast furnace slag ballast sourced from steel works across the UK from South Wales, the Midlands to the North East and Southern Scotland.

Locally boiler clinker was used as ballast and this product provides an excellent miniature analogue.

Actual Grain Size: 0.35-0.7mm
Corresponding Real Life Size at OO/HO Gauge: 30 - 50mm

Pack size: 4kg

OO/HO Scale Analogue to:
BSEN 13450 Aggregates for Rail Ballast. Principally being hard, clean and durable stone crushed and graded to 30-50mm. Stone to be free of weathered particles, organic matter and inorganic residues. Ballast should be cubical in shape as far as is possible.

Whilst our analogue ballast makes for perfectly scaled track support, don't forget it can also be used for wagon fill. 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.

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.
