DescriptionRailroads of the nation must soon install increasing numbers of crossties if rail-beds are to be maintained at an acceptable level. But the problem is that hardwood logs large enough to make one-piece 7- by 9-inch crossties will likely be in short supply. Fortunately, a process is available whereby plentiful small logs can be converted into the needed mainline ties.
