    I am interested in purchasing four actual railroad wheel sets with axels for a landscaping project. Does anyone have advise on where to get a start on this?

    wheel sets

    I work in a scrap yard and that would be my guess for the best place to start I have worked there six years and this weekend was the first time I have seen any come in but we are kinda small time so a bigger yard might have a few.
    Understand tho you have to pay for it by the pound ot ton so this might get to be a expensive project.
    Hope this helps
    Mike

    Thanks for the tip. I am just trying to get a start on this and price things out and see what is reasonable. It might mean a trip back to planning.
