Daniel-I have made links using 2 of the eyepins soldered into a piece of brass tubing which is then flattened but have found that just cutting links & drilling them is easier and I love easier. As for third world paint schemes, that's what I go for. The real Mogollon, New Mexico is up in the mountains and is/was very "rough and tumble" even today as an old almost ghost town. The medium blue color is something I like and an old photo of a Silver City, Pinos Altos, & Mogollon ore train(my inspiration) which had been hand colored in 1914 shows the cars to be this very color! My replica of the SCPA&M caboose is painted in a "mineral red" color, again like the hand tinted photo.  The real railroad never had a fine coach like yours, but my version of the old railway is very proud of the new passenger car. Be assured it will travel many, many miles on the twisty old track.
