Railway Ties as Fenceposts
I have driven by this fence a number of times and each time I consider the effort it would take to plant these ties into the ground. I know because I spent a summer moving railway ties while making a flower bed. Each tie weighs upwards of 100lbs, and in this case they are planted in a mile long stretch. No barbed wire is laced between posts to tie them together and as a result they crumble, faint and wend askew the entire length of the fence.
