I have over a hundred railroad ties and many pallets of bricks. The bricks are $100 per pallet and the ties are $10 a piece. I used some of these bricks in my backyard for a walkway. They would work well for projects like that. They are the old bricks that don't have the 3 holes in them. The ties are actual old railroad ties and I think they would work well for retaining walls, parking blocks, etc. Let me know if you have any questions.

they are standard size railroad ties. I think they are 6' or 7' in length and probably 15"x15"...those are definitely rough estimates.

Keep in mind that these are old (circa 1870) bricks and they are weathered (which is part of their charm). I don't want to sell them individually, just for a pallet. I believe there is probably around 300-400 bricks in a pallet. The going rate for used brick is $.50 per brick.

Do you have a chain gang I can rent to install the ties?

what size is a brick? 2x8"
I have access to a mexican that will work for $10/hr cash. He equates to about 3 white dudes in work performed for about 1/10 the price. The brick is all different sizes. It came from a few old buildings that have been torn down. All the brick is clean of any mortor and it has all been palletized. They are all close in size, but they aren't all exactly the same.

Are the railroad ties soaked in creasote or are they pretty dry? I know I need at least three. Where are you located?

These are actual railroad ties. They have been soaked in creasote (sp?) and are in good condition. I'll post pics shortly. I'm in Jeffersonville.

If I have access to a pick-up truck this weekend, do you think we could try to meet sometime or would you rather do it during the week?

Thanks in advance,

Matt
