Those wooden railroad ties underneath the metal railroad tracks? Absolutely solid hunks of wood perfect for reclaimed furniture.

Holy crap, this train derailment created a massive freaking explosion

Oh my. This is beyond scary. A mile-long train carrying crude oil derailed near a small town in North Dakota and sent explosions, flames and dark black smoke into the sky. Luckily (and almost unbelievably), no one was hurt in the accident that looked a lot more like a nuke exploding than a train derailment. Thank god.
