This is the fun part. Close to a hundred years after the Lucin Cutoff railroad trestle was originally built, and almost forty years since its last significant service, the wood from the trestle is enjoying a rebirth. Some of this wood is popping up in some very prominent places. Just as significantly, it is being used in several homes and other lower-profile projects.
Wood reclaimed from the trestle is being used in a wide variety of ways, from construction and industrial applications to architectural and other high-end applications. Timbers. . . Flooring. . . Decking. . . Poles. . . Millwork. . . Doors. . . Siding. . . Furniture. . . Cabinets. . . Mantels. . . The list of Trestlewood applications is long, and growing longer.
The western United States has accounted for a high percentage of Trestlewood sales. This percentage can be expected to decrease as Trestlewood's geographic reach continues to expand. Wood from the trestle has already been shipped as far away as Martha's Vineyard, the Philippines and Japan.
The list of projects using wood from the trestle will continue to grow. It is remarkable that an old train trestle has contributed in fundamental ways to so many new projects, high and low-profile alike.
