Since i do the trackwork, i'll answer the rail color question.  Rails were painted with RustOlem primer for rusty metal before laying.  After everything was in place,  the rails, spikes and tieplates were painted with Joe's Model Trains Custom Flat Acrylic Paint and a small brush.  It's not really as tedious as it sounds.  A little weathering should knock down the "new" rust look.  The BNSF rails behind my house are much darker brown than this color,  but they are only seen in direct sunlight.  Erik has been teaching me about the role of light in presenting models in a "good" light. 

In my opinion, this is your best scene yet Erik!  I've been following your work on this and I must say...its worth every painstaking scale stake you drove, all your drawings, research, scenery, design work, engineering studies, work sessions, bridge modifications, and the hours and hours of artistic love of scale work you've put into this scene. You're an O Scale 1/48 artist and it shows! Best work! Love it! Congratulations!
