Yep, Light gray. Most of the ballast used on the N&W in the 1960's and
1970's came from Plum Run quarry on the Cincinnati District. This is a
limestone rock that is light gray with a hint of tan in it. The quarry is
near the town of Peebles.

What is the correct color for ballast on the Pocahontas District in the
1960's and 1970's ?
