Reply to "Atlas O Switch Failures"

I can't find anything to suggest the alien metal 3rd rail is anything but the same  nickle-silver used in the other rails.  It seems the blackening process just makes the metal not want to take solder.  Has anyone tried taking a file, sand paper, or small dremmel tool grinding wheel to the side of the rail to remove the coating?
