Tom,

On my layout (35n2) I started with flex track which I spray painted after tacking it down.
Now that I've starting handlaying and building my own switches I wait until the rails are down before staining the ties.
I kinda slop it on with an old paint brush.
Most of it will get buried in ballast or dirt anyway so I don't worry too much about it.
I use brass rail which tarnishes fairly quickly.

Bob does some great work with his ties and rails which I really admire.
Maybe he can share a few tips.
