Used Railroad Ties

As part of an effort to encourage the environmentally and economically sound use of treated timber products, we work with rail lines and contractors to help properly reuse or dispose of ties that have reached the end of their usable life in the track. Our sorting crews travel throughout the country grading and bundling used ties into usable material or scrap, then promptly ship them to accommodate your specific job-site delivery schedule. Our strict grading system assures our ties are of the highest quality and consistency.

Used Railroad Ties:

  • Grades:  Relay, #1, #2 and #3 landscape
  • Treated or untreated
  • 100% oak, mixed hardwood and softwood
  • Ranging in sizes from 6”x8”, 7”x8” and 7”x9” widths with lengths up to 26’ with or without end plates
  • Standard switch tie sets ranging in lengths from 9’x17’
  • Creosote treatment and alternate treatments (ie. copper napthenate and ACZA)
  • Custom cutting and treating for bridge timbers and crossings
  • Customized fabrication
