Please note that Red Gum sleepers are not suitable for burning.  A few years ago the Firewood Association of Australia (FAA) issued a health alert regarding the dangers of burning old rail sleepers. Use as firewood is hazardous because old railway sleepers tend to have absorbed toxins over the years which can be released when the sleepers are burned. These include asbestos, oil and herbicides as well as small stones and grit that can also explode when heated.  These substances are released when the sleepers are burnt. But as long as they are not disturbed sleepers are safe the wood is safe for many purposes, even vegie gardens.
