Railroad Ballast (Rock): Specifications, Sizes, Background

For history's sake, ballast has its earliest beginnings as simple limestone blocks, which actually sometimes pulled double duty as both the support base and railroad track structure. In the 1840s true ballast, or crushed stone, as we know it today began to be widely used and was soon found to be far superior to the old method.

Difference in types of Ballast? Trains Magazine Trains

2010-1-15  Historically, the ballast a railroad used was what was available on line, hence limestone in the south, ganite in the west, cinders or dirt anywhere, etc, as you note. As demands for a better track structure developed, many things changed. Ties got bigger, rail got heavier and the need for a good solid base to build it on got more critical.

LIMESTONE RAILROAD BALLAST Texas Crushed Stone Co.

Over 3 million tons of Texas Crushed Stone’s crushed limestone has been used for railroad ballast. Railroad ballast is typically graded from 1 ¾” or 1 ¼” to ½”.

Railroad Ballast Gulf Coast Limestone

Railroad ballast is produced by first blasting solid rock from the quarry face. It is then crushed and screened to produce an open graded product. This differs from the well graded products, such as concrete aggregate, in that the stones within the product are all close to the same size. This reduces the effect of the filling in of the voids between the stones by smaller particles.
