What is creosote And what type of hardwood is this railroad Lumber made out of?

Asked by MW October 29, 2020

Answers

its a organic wood/coal/oil tar product that was used for preserving wood from decay and bugs. It was used for about 150 years starting in 1840ish on bridges, telephone poles, barns and railroad ties before it was substituted in the 80's with copper green wood preservative that is made with arsenic. Creosote is present in your fire place chimney and is the flavor that is developed when smoking meats. I would not recommend drinking it. When I was a kid in the late 60s we would paint the barn with it and soak the fence posts in a bucket of it, you did not want it to splash on you.

These are mixed grade quality. For the price I expected #1 quality. Many of the ties are in very rough condition. Depending on the project you intend to use them for that can be alright, or if you can hand pick each one you need to get the best available. That said these are working for my project.

Just what we wanted and exceptional customer service! My only issue was that the timbers measure 9 ft. long, not 8. I'm happy about the extra wood, but had a difficult time fitting them in the van.
