Used Jarrah Relay 1 railway sleepers

Used Jarrah Relay 1 railway sleepers

Grade: Grade 1 Relay Jarrah railway sleepers. Best grade very long lasting sleepers for all landscaping projects and general purposes. Generally square and straight edged, although years of unrelenting British weather will have naturally started to wear away some of the edges and exposed faces. See pictures above. Colour: Various shades of light, medium brownon the outside. Various stunning shades of red, pink or yellow on the inside, when cut or planed. Weight: Can be heavy to lift, especially the 2.6m x 250mm x 125mm size sleepers which can weigh as much as 90 kilos. Bear this in mind when you are ordering your particular size of railway sleeper. How do I plan to carry the railway sleepers into position? (e.g. the back of a garden). You'll need at least two willing and strong people, and the serious possibility of bribery, deception or cohersion. Treatment: Untreated. These railway sleepers were originally installed on the railways without any form of treatment, so they are very suitable for long lasting and people friendly projects, where creosote is inadvisable. Description: These reclaimed Australian Jarrah railway sleepers are probably between 20 - 50 years old, depending on which section of railway they came from in Britain. They are durable, tight-grained tropical hardwoods with excellent longevity. Grade 1 Relay are the best grade Jarrah sleepers which can even be re-used on a railway track, if you have secret dreams of opening a new line in your back garden, and becoming an engine driver! Cutting: Quite hard. You'll need a circular saw / chainsaw / powered saw to cut these railway sleepers. Start off with a new or sharpened blade, and be prepared to re-sharpen. Occasionally people try by handsaw, but you have to be very determined or fit. As with any project, it makes sense to try and limit the amount of cuts you need to do. Try and plan a design that fits with the size of our railway sleepers! The length of these railway sleepers is approx 2.6m or 8ft 6". Attaching / Fixing: Timberlok will probably not screw through these railway sleepers without a pilot hole, even if the drill is powerful, so it makes sense to pre-drill. These sleepers are hard ! Sizes: IMPORTANT. All sizes below are approximate. That means that although a railway sleeper is described as 2600mm in length,depth or width it may in fact be several centimetres longer or shorter. This is due to the fact that these railway sleepers were cut decades ago, in circumstances when it wasn't crucial to be centimetre perfect or accurate in dimension. As it happens, most landscaping projects have an element of flexibility or tolerance in them and can cope with this. If your project needs exact accuracy in length, width or depth, then you may to cut them to your precise specifications yourself, or think of using a different railway sleeper.
