    If you go get railroad timber, best make sure you have a strong sumbitch with you....

    Call or go by Mastech on C.C. northwest. West side C.C. between Old Bainbridge and 27. They USED to have a pile of utility poles they would give away. It was poles that were either broken or replaced for some reason.

    Depending on where this is, Railroad timbers can end up being expensive. Some places have a requirement to remove, at your cost.
    EPA and stuff. I have not dealt with this in a long time, so I do not know the current stuff.

    on top of TRPC's berms they have a wall that consists of 2x6s with a layer of gravel in between. You could construct one of those, then put dirt in front of it.

    You could also stack up 5 gallon bucket's filled with sand. They will stop a bullet and the plastic is self healing.

    I have feed bags we can fill with sand here. Come get some. Shovel is next to the pile.

    I have some smaller tractor and truck tires.

    The bigger ones, go to a better cause.
