Somebody came in the middle of the night and took my rail:

Not sure what you'd call this pair of round-faced cutters, but all I had to do was squeeze the rail and give the cutters a slight roll to pop the rail up out of the grooves in the ties.  Has to be done at each tie, but there's hardly any mess.  The rail with the grooves in the ties is Gargraves.  The Ross track and switches have spikes at each tie, I had to pry one end up and once I could slide a tongue depressor under it I could move the tongue depressor along the track and lift the center rail up.  Had to follow that with a pair of small needle-nosed pliers to get all the spikes.
