RTA Introduces a New Service

The Railway Tie Association is excited to introduce a new service to our members.  Potential buyers often contact RTA in an effort to reach producers and suppliers of new and used railroad crossties.  You may now find those active requests below.  We will keep the information on this page active as long as the buyers are still in the market for ties.  You can check it out frequently and we will continue to alert producers of the requests as soon as they come in to the RTA headquarters.

Bid Requests:

The Invitation to Bid from Carolina Coastal Railway is now closed.
