Hi there,
Does anyone have any advice on where to buy railway sleepers? Cheap as possible and no creosote.

Thanks,

Railway Sleepers cost in the region of 25Euros each,give your local Builders Yard or Saw-Mills a visit. Woodies in Lucan was selling Scaffolding Planks for 10Euro ,the more you bought the cheaper they were. Dave.

Cheers Dave. I need about 40 so maybe scaffolding planks are the way to go. Never even thought of them.
