As requested here are pictures of our railway sleeper project. We used 8 of the railway sleepers stacked in 2 layers to form a 22" high bed. 5 tons of top soil to fill!. We had difficulty with moving the railway sleepers to our back garden, since they had to be horizontal to pass through a passageway with low headroom, then had to be upended to turn 90 degrees through the back gate into the garden. I strapped each railway sleeper one at a time to my 2 wheel trolley but it took 2 of us to lift one end to vertical. (No pic of this!) I used a chainsaw to cut the railway sleepers Hope the pics are useful to others as we found others useful to us.
