Customer Questions & Answers

How much does a railroad tie weigh ?

Asked by: Shemp
The darker = the HEAVIER! 200+lbs

Aren't these illegal? Isn't creosote potentially carcinogenic?

I have an idea that creosote treated railroad ties are not approved by the EPA and it is therefore illegal to use them in landscaping, is that true?
Asked by: tom
The EPA is still evaluating the use and disposal of Creosote in wood and pesticides. They are a looking bit tardy with that evaluation, as the chemical was first registered in with the government in 1948. General consensus is don't use it around edible plants or in a watershed area, which most areas are.

Are railroad ties legal to use at your home

Asked by: Rocket
Just a follow up on the article that is stating it's illegal.. the EPA website cited in the article (http://www2.epa.gov/ingredients-used-pesticide-products/creosote) continues to say "Reuse of creosote-treated wood is not subject to regulation by EPA under pesticide laws." It is legal federally. It might not be good for your soil though.

Used Railroad Tie-Cresote Treated (Common: 7 in. x 9 in. x 8 ft.; Actual: 96 in.) is rated 2.6 out of 5 by 16.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Railroad Ties About 1/3 of them are split, or rotten, but 2/3 of them are still good. After all, they're used. But you will need to pick them out yourself, and the young men working at the Depot will be less than worthless, so don't ask for help. Instead, bring a weightlifter, gloves, and a truck, and you will be the proud owner of a little bit of Americana.

Granted, these are used ties but I was not prepared to receive so many split or cracked ties along the whole 8'6" length. I had to get 10" carriage bolts & nuts to make sure these would not split apart. Will evaluate these against another competitor. Perhaps, these conditions are par for the course in buying used RR ties. Otherwise, the delivery service is excellent and local store response terrific!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Solid but looks horrible Pretty solid but definitely not pretty. They start leeching white stuff after a few years and not suitable for structural elements but work fine as edging. But why buy something this heavy and solid? Just for the look, in which case HD ties disappoint. At best, these would be graded #2, which is the lowest worthy of recycle sale.

I had to painstakingly sort them into two piles based on size. And 3 of the ties were badly damaged and should never have been offered for sale. Out of 40 ties, 9 were not as advertised.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Be sure to go and pick yours out in person. I had 10 delivered to my house because I am making a planter out of them. The delivery guy was great but when I started to move them to my backyard, I saw what bad shape most of them are in. I really wish I had gone and picked them out myself. I am going to really have to pick and choose how to place them. After spending $17 each and $80 for delivery, I expected ties that weren't falling apart. I understand that they are used, but I would expect a little better. I am really disappointed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Rail Road Ties From Montgmery AL Store I recently purchased 20 ties from the Eastern Bypass store. I went to look at them to check the condition and they were banded in 16 tie packs. The loose ones looked pretty bad and have been obviously picked over, but some were fine. I was weary of having them delivered because I did not want unusable ties. In the end I figured I'd have them delivered and save tha hassle and take my chances knowing at least 16 would be fine. When delivered, the 16 banded had 4 more added and banded to the top. Outside appearances were fine. When I got into the project and opened the delivery one of the four additional ties was completely rotted on the underside. I ended up just throwing it out, but I think it was unacceptable to deliver me a tie like this. Fortunately I ordered one more than I needed. Home Depot you need to do better.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Never Have Lumber DELIVERED My son manages a railroad. Most railroad ties are basically beyond use when the railroad replaces them. Having said this, NEVER have lumber products that you haven't personally selected delivered. You will get the culls that nobody else wants. Remember, NEVER!!! Contractor for 37 years.
