Rail Ballast

Durable Material, Dependable Service

Michels has you covered if you need long-lasting, durable hardstone ballast for railbed construction and renovation. We mine quartzite and granite from our conveniently located quarries in Waterloo and Wausau, Wis.

Michels maintains an inventory of 150,000 tons of ballast that we ship by truck and rail. Our twin track siding has the capacity to handle more than 80 cars. Additionally, Michels ballast is independently tested and meets all AREMA requirements.
