Does anyone have a plan for a cart for moving ties?? 20 years ago I didn’t think anything about carrying a tie, now, all I can do, IS think about it. Have these things got heaver?

Same here…

I’m inclined to think that gravity is increasing.

Beyond that, I use a 2 wheel hand truck with large tires for tasks like that.

the density of railroad ties increase with each year!!! It’s true!! However in our belated youth, I tend to agree with Q. 2wheelers rule!!

Ah, thats why my pants keep falling down if I don’t have suspenders on.

I tried a hand truck, Q Its a experience over rough ground with a 9’ tie.

I have always had to lug things around the hard way for years but this year i fixed that problem . You can buy a small wagon like this for a few hundred dollars ( 4’x6’ . It also comes with removable sides . It is great for cleaning up leaves in the fall too if you have a large yard .
