Supposed to be creosote but there was a supplier that got busted for simply painting ties black, dipping them in oil, etc. It was a big case and I believe involved millions of ties.

Sounds like some railroad bigshots had to be on the take here.

I worked for a company that rebuilt railroads and new sidings and terminals for several years.  Any guy would have to be flat out braindead to look at a tie that had been soaked in motor oil and think it was creosote, actually paint or about anything else too, not only is it visibly different it certainly is to the touch and The smell is WAY different and unmistakable.

I don't cut to many ties but they seem to be coming back.  My buyer(koppers) called me last week and said he was raising prices a $1.00.  i figure they must be needing them now.
