railroad ties

Post

Andrew,
 I recently talked to Cliff and he told me because the place where he is living is up for sale, we have to get the ties moved. He has someone who will move them out to the sight for $25 per load and he figures 3 loads. As soon as we can get the money to Cliff he will make arrangements to have the guy move them for us. You can call me at 970 249 8521 for arrangements or you can call Cliff at 970 275 0663. I kind of got the feeling that it might be a good idea to get this done soon. Thanks

Mike,

We don't want to let this slide and risk losing our ties. The $75 to move them is cheap compared to replacing the ties.

How many ties are we talking about?

there are three bundles with 16 ties per bundle for a total of 48 ties. Forklift heavy stuff.  

Thanks to Cliff, we got a very good deal when we bought them; $10/tie.  No doubt that ties of that quality would cost more today.

I just saw him this week and he did not mention it.  I will contact him and get him the money.

I have a flatbed truck & can haul them out to the field & save the Club $75. Will try to get ahold of Cliff tomorrow. Is anyone available Wednesday or Friday evening to help unload at the field?

Remember they are banded in bundles of 16. That's fork lift stuff isn't it? Seems like it'd be best to keep them in the banded bundles rather than throwing 48 ties off in a pile. I can see how you could maybe winch the bundles off and keep them together if Cliff could load them on your flatbed.  Did you get in touch with him?

Sorry but I will be busy next week with preparing for rendezvous and we head out on thursday morning so I can't help with the ties and I agree with jim about keeping them bundled. I have hauled ties before and my opinion is it is worth 25 dollars a bundle to get them to the field. It is a lot of work when you figure 48 ties and these are heavy. Just my 2 cents worth!

I have paid Cliff to get the ties moved.  In looking at the previous posts let me know if it is a problem.

Probably is the best option to have them moved to the field still bundled so they are easier to keep track of. Not to mention the flatbed on my truck is pretty high!

Thank you Don for getting the $ to Cliff.
