Which railway sleepers are best for decking?

I need some advice, please could you inform me which are the best or most popular railway sleepers to use for decking, and do you have them in stock?

Railway Sleepers Ltd: Thanks for your e-mail A hard question to answer because it depends on the look you are wanting. From a practical construction point of view, handling, cutting and staining, it is easier to use new railway sleepers - either new Oak, or new British Pine. They tend to be straighter, and will age and develop 'character' over the coming years. If you plump for a used railway sleeper, then you can chose between the used untreated Tropical hardwood and the used African azobe. You get bags of character and weathering, and no problems with creosote. Of course the surface of the deck will be more uneven and aged, but that after all is one of the reasons for using them instead of conventional decking!
