Further information

Softwood railway sleepers are large, sawn cut rectangle sleepers that have been pressure treated with a brown preservative to extend its life when exposed to the elements.  This treatment process ensures a deep penetration of the wood preservative into the timber cells of the railway sleepers, giving these softwood sleepers an expected lifespan of around 8 to 10 years

The tanalised railway sleepers have a brown colouration initially which will fade to a honey brown and finally to a silvery grey over time when exposed to the sun.  However, if you would prefer, these sleepers can be easily stained to suit your aesthetics with our Barrettine Wood Protective Treatment.  It is also advised that this treatment is applied if the railway sleepers are cut - using a circular saw, chainsaw or handsaw - as newly exposed cut surfaces will otherwise be exposed.

Available in handy 1.2m lengths, these railway sleepers are perfect for use in conjunction with our 2.4m railway sleepers to create rectangular raised beds.  The dark colouration of our brown treated railway sleepers makes them an excellent addition to lighter backdrops to add contrast and sophistication.  To fix railway sleepers together, we recommend using our railway sleeper screws, angle brackets and connector plates.  

Applications include:

  • Lawn edging
  • Raised beds
  • Sleeper retaining walls
  • Ponds and water features
  • Border edging
  • Garden steps
  • Decking
