Questions & Answers

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
Just about every telephone pole in the country is creosote treated; however, they’re only “carcinogenic” if you go around lickin’ ‘em!

Are railroad ties legal to use at your home

Asked by: Rocket
I see them used for landscaping in state parks and other public spaces. I wouldn't consider new ties (they are sticky and they stink) but after setting in the sun and rain for twenty years or more in railroad service, they seem to be pretty benign. It's a case of 'swim at your own risk'. How could you swim at someone else's risk, anyway?

Used Railroad Tie-Cresote Treated (Common: 7 in. x 9 in. x 8 ft.; Actual: 96 in.) is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 118.

I set these down into the ground and use them to line the border of the yard so as to keep street water runoff in the street. Two of the ties had become hollow shells over time and needed replacing. I had put this off as my last experience with cross ties several years ago when I was in my 50's yielded a double hernia. Nevertheless, I bought three as another one is starting to split. The guys at the store were most helpful in loading them onto my trailer, even as an electrical storm was starting to overtake us. I was given the chance to reject any I didn't like but all appeared to be very solid. Back home I worked smart by sliding each off the trailer adjacent to the one that was being replaced, and the third was left alongside the drive. All 3 were as solid as they appeared and I have no doubt they will not have to be replaced again in my lifetime. I similarly use old 6x6 sign posts to line the drive and based on the quality of these ties, I will use them along the drive when those timbers need replacing.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Railroad ties vary in condition. What I have learned so far is that they are graded according to ... Railroad ties vary in condition. What I have learned so far is that they are graded according to condition. Relay is good enough to go back onto a railroad track. Premium is the next best, with 3-4 good sides. #1 Landscape has 3-4 good sides and some splitting. #2 Landscape has 1-2 good sides and can have some rot. All the RR ties at the store were in similar condition, with one useable side and some splitting or rot. The grade you want depends on your use. If you can go to the store in person and select your ties I recommend that over having them delivered. The employees who helped me at the store were patient and sorted through the stack to find 3 that were passable. Remember these are used! They will all vary. And they are heavy. If you are transporting them you might want to line your vehicle with something to protect your vehicle. I fit 3 ties into a Suburban and I used plastic and cardboard to protect the seats. It was after my purchase that I learned about the different grades, and it looks like Home Depot charges about twice as much as a smaller supplier for the grade they had in stock. But for my use these will work and Home Depot was a lot closer to me than the other supplier.

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.

I'm sure I would have been happier had I picked these out myself but since I ordered online, you rely on someone else. Two of the ties were short by about a foot and another two had dimensions significantly less that the 7x9 listed. However, most of the ties were in very good condition for being used. all of the timbers were solid.

These ties were in great condition which I am using as a retaining wall along the lake. The biggest reason I went to HD is the help I received by the employees. These things are like 200 lbs each.
