railroad cross-tie wall, demolition

I have a railroad cross tie wall approx. 6ft high and 60ft long; any suggestions on tools for demolition? I have looked into renting a compact excavator from BOBCAT, but access may not be practical.

You are going to need some type of equipment to do it. Just the ties (if they are real ties) can be very dense and heavy and not like landscape timbers. Since it is 6' high, there may also be some additional buried support or anchors.
