7 thoughts on “Railroad ties”

  1. I got a bit of a shock when I first looked at your photo. I thought you took the photo standing on the old rails looking down. These rails would make an excellent fence.

  2. I like this a lot. It’s a great idea and good use of those old RR ties and rails. Sturdy, too. I wonder if our wood products today would look as good, if they were left out and exposed to the weather, 100 years from now?

  3. I’m glad that some people have the foresight to save relics of the past. I responded to your thoughtful comment on my blog and thought I’d add it here since I can’t find an email address for you: Kay, I am trying to respond to your comments but my own “reply” does not work so here it is: I am now reading Team of Rivals, which is an excellent book about Lincoln and his cabinet by Doris Kearns Goodwin, who was a consultant on the Lincoln movie. It is a huge book and I’m just up to 1850, but if I’m interpreting it correctly, members of his cabinet (altho rivals for the Presidency, were many politicians that opposed slavery…so I am supposing that there were among them with visions of the terrible toll on the union of the North and South and the loss of life.)
