Not exactly dirt ballast, but run down and badly maintained, like much of Updah ! 

This is On30, and the ballast basis is Vermiculite, a very lightweight ground volcanic rock,
used as bedding for snakes, and bought at the local garden centre's pet shop.

With the addition of kiln dried sand,
the sort used in block paving jobs, and very dry and fine grained.

Mixed together, and given a wash of rust weathering powder, mixed with IPA. 

Don't know if this is the effect you're after, but it's a suggestion, and is easy to lay.
