Nothing to do with food..
« on: April 11, 2013, 09:06:51 PM »
Looking through old photos and came across this shot of my shop in Somers, Montana, about twenty years ago.  It was a garage built out of railroad ties.  Unfortunately Somers, MT is a Superfund site... as a result of the tie plant :-\

What is a tie plant Steel?

They take logs, mostly lodge pole pine in Montana, cut them square and pressure  treat them with creosote (hence the Superfund issue).  Ties are the prices of wood that you see perpendicular to the railroad tracks.
