National Salvage & Service Corporation’s New Railroad Tie Division specializes in providing high-quality, sustainable treated wood products for the construction of long-lasting rail lines. Treated with creosote, copper naphthenate or our top-of-the-line borate/creosote or borate/copper naphthenate dual treatments, National specializes in providing new oak and selected treated hardwood railroad track products, including:
- Switch ties
- Road crossing panels and timbers
- Bridge ties and timbers
- Prefabricated track panels
Our treatments are environmentally sound, and our products are built to last. Because of the presence of borate throughout the tie, dual treatment has proven to triple the life of a tie compared to conventional treatment, when installed in high-decay track applications.
National’s ties can withstand the punishing effects of heavy trains over many years of service. We offer class-one-, regional-, shortline-, government- and transit-grade ties, as well as ties built to the standards of the American Railway Engineering and Maintenance-of-Way Association and the American Wood Protection Association.
Because we are a full-service provider that can manage the replacement of your railroad ties from start to finish, we offer crosstie pre-plating, boring and hi-rail distribution in order to prepare your track for the installation of the new ties.
