Questions & Answers

How much does a railroad tie weigh ?

Asked by: Shemp
I bundle railroad ties for a living and the weight depends on the grade of tie and where the ties came from. #2 grade weights anywhere from 80-110. #1 grade weighs anywhere from 140-180. And a relay tie weighs anywhere from 180-220. Ties that come from northern states tend to be a bit heavier because the railroad company's replace them more often due to weather conditions. Same thing for ties in the south east region.

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
From the EPA's website: https://www.epa.gov/ingredients-used-pesticide-products/creosote ◦Reuse of creosote-treated wood is not subject to regulation by EPA under pesticide laws. So, yes, creosote is not approved for use in residential applications, but the EPA states that the reuse is not subject to regulation by the EPA. So, the State, County or City may have something to say prohibiting the use, but the EPA does not.

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.

They were basically destroyed but selection was totally limited. I ended up purchasing the next 50 from Tanglewild Lumber. The difference in product was night and day. Totally disappointed.

These were #3 ties and with a price of #2's. Some were unusable and I'll be bringing them back in pieces. Think I'll go elsewhere for the next set.

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 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.
