I wonder what they do with all the rotten ties. The rails are presumably scrapped or reused, and the ballast will make a roadbed for the rail trail, but all those old ties must have a lot of unpleasant chemicals in them that kept them from rotting completely away, and the amount of material to be removed must be tremendous.
