They're not allowed to sell genuine creosote-soaked used railroad ties.

What you're buying is a railroad tie-shaped object. A chunk of wood roughly the same size and shape as a railroad tie.
The only way to get "real" railroad ties now is to steal them off the rail grade while they're replacing them. They usually dump them along the track and the come along later with the machine to replace them.

I think you are going to have to tell that to the feed mill, they got piles and piles of them, $9 each. No, they are not stolen....

Just bought some real creosoted ties from the "local" Menards last friday. They weigh about 200lbs and have all sorts of busted off RR spikes and other hardware left in them.

Perhaps where you are that is true.

Here, they tore out 100+ miles of abandoned rail and turned it into snowmobile/atv trail. Every lumber yard in the area has multiple lifts of actual railroad ties.

You just need to tick off the yard guy and pick through them to avoid the rotted ones.
