    I was tempted, a friend has a chainsaw though I used regular hand saws. Yeah, it DID take a long time to slice through them. Seems to be worth it so far though :)

    Thanks :) Chances are they're older than the car itself. We have a lot of surplus sleepers back in the 1970 s due to the decommissioning of some our railways.

    My dad used a bunch of old railroad ties to build a garden in front of our garage which was located on top of a small rise in the backyard. My mom loved having the garden there, had some really great crops of tomato over the years.
