Perhaps railroad ties? It's the support lumber under the metal rails.
The black-brown stuff is creosote - nasty stuff to get off hands,
clothing; don't even think about flooring!! If you need to cut use a
tree branch trim saw: one that has a very deep-toothed blade. I think
one can use short sections of rebar through the ties for stability.
