New oak railway sleepers
2400mm x 200mm x 100mm Says.. supplies new and used hardwood & softwood railway sleepers throughout the UK.
Railway sleepers are brilliant for creating unusual shapes and designs. Your great photos help to illustrate the building process of your design from start to finish. Showing the battens at the beginning that keep the railway sleepers attached to each other, (both vertically and horizontally), and the corner railway sleeper posts that keep the construction stable. Carrying on to the filling up of the bed with soil and planting it up, to the staining of the railway sleepers (now with with sunken lights fitted). And finally, the standing back and admiring the masterpeice!
