Further information

Softwood railway sleepers are large, sawn cut rectangle sleepers that have been pressure treated with a green preservative to extend its life outdoors.  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 light 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 our most popular size, 2.4m x 200mm x 100mm, these railway sleepers are perfect for use in conjunction with our 1.2m sleepers to create rectangular raised beds.   To fix the sleepers together, we recommend using railway sleeper screws, angle brackets and connector plates.  They can also be used for a variety of other landscaping and applications, with softwood sleepers being most popular for gardening.

Applications include:

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