Problem with railroad ties, is that they are made of what lumber men call cants. Cants are the center of the tree, that you can't take another usable board off of. The center of the tree, about 2-4" or so is the softest wood in the tree, and contains every knot, that ever grew into a branch, on the tree. They are good at soaking up creosote, though. Before I used a tie, that the railroad has pulled up as it is no longer safe, I would go to the woods, or a local sawmill, and buy a black locust post, for the corner. Untreated they last 30-40 years, if you buy them 8' long, they can be turned over, when they rot off!
