We are passionate about railway sleepers..

EVERYTHING YOU EVER NEEDED TO KNOW ABOUT RAILWAY SLEEPERS but were afraid to ask! Whether you are planning a raised bed, retaining wall, raised pond or some steps in the garden, you will find that railway sleepers are brilliant to use. Whether you want new or used railway sleepers, softwood or hardwood, untreated or treated, we have 1000's in stock & WE LOVE THEM! Some might say that this makes us a little obsessive, having recently built the largest railway sleeper projects collection in the world, but we are proud to say that we equally care about our customers & enthusiastically supply our railway sleepers throughout the UK.

  • Can I just say what a fantastic website you have!!! I am myself currently investigating the possible import of railway sleepers and I am researching companies that currently sell them. Loving all the pictures and the story about the divorce case. What a breath of fresh air that some companies still reach out to everybody instead of having cheesy photographs of the CEO/MD feeding us all the same co...

  • I was reading some of the details regarding the collection and siting of railway sleepers. Comedy afoot! Good stuff, though perhaps not to everyone's taste but I am of similar composition so I was tingling with chuckles as I was reading. Appreciated by me much. If anyone doesn't see it like that then that's their fault for being a stickler!...

JOHN'S REPLACEMENT OF RAILWAY SLEEPER STEPS. HARD WORK!

JOHN'S REPLACEMENT OF RAILWAY SLEEPER STEPS. HARD WORK!

Many thanks to John for his kind words, photos and useful description of his project. Removing some old rotten railway sleeper steps and replacing them with eight 'new' hardwood oak ones seems very easy on paper, but in reality it is a tough undertaking. Lifting the heavy railway sleepers up a slope is always an ordeal, and then chainsawing the hardwood oak to size is by no means easy. Add to that the slicing up and carrying away of the old railway sleepers, and you've got a pretty back-breaking undertaking. All credit to him.
