In the early 1960's, I recall ballast in the Shepherdstown area of
the Shenandoah Division having a pink color, like crushed
granite. Anyone else remember seeing this shade of ballast?

I am reasonably sure that the Plum Run ballast was used system wide
on the N&W in those days. It sure was used on Scioto Division track
in abundance.
