    Quarried stone ballast should be obtained from com­ petent strata of reasonable thickness. The extent of the rock deposit should be sufficient for economic ballast production. A large variety of rock types are used as ballast. In general the fine hard min­ eral-grained unweathered aggregates make the best ballast.
