Grandfather and his dad both worked for railroad for a time. I recall him saying those green ties weighed somewhere around 200lbs and they had guys loading cars with them day in and day out by hand. Glad some things do change. I wouldn’t make it!

I may need to amend my answer a bit. Crossties are made from many different species of wood. My guess is that their durability for underground use may be determined by the type of wood and your location. Here is a map showing different areas and the rate of decay. So I was wrong to make a blanket statement. But around here, they just don't last.
That is soo true
