I think the "looks worn out" method is how they determine replacement now. Back in the early days of date nails ties were made from different kinds of wood. I have seen old oak and even redwood ties in California. Obviously some of the hardwoods lasted much longer than pine ties. Preserving methods probably were evolving in the early days also and different ties might have different preservitives in them that lasted longer or shorter periods.
