HO SCENERY CATALOG

World Leader in Prototype Ballast Colors and Scenery

Note: The first three numbers represent the color family. For example, #101 is "Red Cinder." The fourth number represents the grain size. For example "0" is a powder, "1" is N gauge, "2" is HO Fine, "3" is HO M/L (mainline), "4" is large scale ballast. As the fourth digit increases, the rock size increases. Those products with a five digit number are sand and gravel items, meaning that the material is "powder to HO mainline."
