Default Looking for BIG lumber

I'm looking for a couple of items and thought I would ask here to see if anyone can help. First I'm looking for some clean railroad ties or old beams from a barn. I'm going to be using them for some outdoor furniture.
The other thing I'm going to be doing is buildig a dinning table. I have no problem finding the thin stuff but I'm actually wanting to do a table top from a solid chunk of wood. I'm looking for a finished product that is 34-36" wide, 70" long, and at least 1.5" thick but would prefer 2-2.5". I'm not too worried about the type of wood as it's not going to take a ton of abuse and I'm going to be staining it dark so the grain isn't going to be too much of an issue.
I'm located in Brownstown and would love to find something within driving distance, let rephrase that.... driving distance of an hour or two tops.
Thanks!!

Woodcraft in Sterling Heights, but I am pretty sure there is another in Canton. Some of it is pretty pricey but worth checking out.

36" x 70"x2" $olid wood. Hmmmmmm. Yup. Good luck. Maybe you can find it but I doubt it will be cheap.
