Existing cinder block wall is still true.

Cinder block wall is 5'x50'. Wall was installed 40 ago and is still true shows no sign of movement.. Can I lay rail road ties on the face and how can I attach them to the cinder blocks. I can't see removing blocks since wall is still shows no sign of movement and not removing blocks would be 1 less thing going to landfill.

If you want to cover the blocks, attach vertical furring strips to the block and install 5/4" x6" wood on the furring strips. Cap it with wood or stone. It covers the wood, doesn't compromise the cinderblock structure and nothing goes to the landfill.
