Track ballast forms the trackbed upon which railroad ties (sleepers) are laid. It is packed between, below, and around the ties. It is used to bear the load from the railroad ties, to facilitate drainage of water, and also to keep down vegetation that might interfere with the track structure. This also serves to hold the track in place as the trains roll by.

Shoulder ballast cleaning consists of removing ballast at the end of the ties, separating and discarding fines and fouled ballast from reusable ballast and restoring the reusable ballast to the shoulder.
