6' Pickets

I am in the process of replacing some rotten railway sleepers used as a retaining wall on a steep bank.
At present they are held in place by 6' pickets, has anyone any other suggestions as how to anchor them or a good source of 6' pickets.
So far I can only find fencing posts which could well do the job, though they look a little light in comparison with the good old 6' picket we have all used to support trenches etc.

I used scrap lengths of rebar scrounged from a builders and hammerited them. Didnt need anything 6 foot long though
