Surplus - Does BNSF sell surplus property such as used railroad ties and railcars?
BNSF sells used ties and other surplus equipment through a bidding process. However, BNSF is not set up to sell used railroad ties in small quantities. They are auctioned in large quantities to contractors who typically re-sell them to landscaping suppliers or co-generation facilities. Your best option to secure a small quantity of used railroad ties is to check with landscaping material suppliers or lumber yards.
If you are willing to purchase them in large quantities you are free to bid on them through our auction website.
