European Oversized Lengths
These oversized bearers are sourced from European railway lines, and cannot be found elsewhere in New Zealand. The generous 300mm widths combined with the unusually long lengths (from 2.6m right up to 4.6m) are a true rarity in railway sleepers. They are the perfect medium where beams are not suitable, but prominence is desired. These pieces can be used in large, linear installations or joined together for robust practical functions such as walls and pergolas.

Variable lengths within bundles, naturally durable without treatment or protection, relatively clear of rail contaminants, cutting and fixing with commercial and trade tools required.
