I guess the other question is where are the plastic ties being made?  Here or overseas?  If here, how long will the jobs stay here?  Wooden railroad ties are going to be made here, using American labor.  An awful lot of your plastic products are being made in China.

Despite the creosote used in Wood ties, there is only so much oil being made for plastic (I don't think a 100% recycles rate is possible)
LT10G10, Stihl 038 Magnum, many woodworking tools. Currently a farm service applicator, trying to find time to saw!
