This is a quote for a building contractor on multiple jobsites. Clay would be my guess on the soil.

6x6 railroad ties are about $12 a face ft. Ties them selves are about $3 a linear ft

Don't think you'll want to use ties...

Welcome to the site amphibiascape.
Your question leads to so many other questions that it might be best if you go into a lot more detail about this project.
Some questions that would be of some interest...
Topography
Height of wall
Soil Class
Dead Men
Static load pressure
Surgharge behind the wall
Will your design meet ASTM C 1300 specs

Some of the other folks here might want to add a few more items.
I am just scrathing the surface.
Give us some detailed info or photos of this project, I am sure we can help you with a bid.
If you have not figured your cost of doing business.....you might want to have some of those figures ready also.
Because those cost vary from region to region some of us may not agree on your rate.

Yea, but I saw where someone else gave the price of ties. Ties aren't acceptable in many places, and are ugly.
