I am liking the ideas I am seeing here.  First, I spray the rails from the side with any red oxcide primer I have on hand, then spray the ties from the top and lightly on the sides with Model Master's Light Earth #FS 30140 spray.  After that I make up several acrylic washes from the yellows to brown to grays (Barnwood is a good one).  Each tie is hand painted (not too time consuming since I build shelf and mini layouts), and when dry with the tie colors alternated, it gives a good appearance.  I finish off with sifted decomposed granite and try to bury a lot of the track, but leave some exposed as well.  I am getting ready to trash the layout in the photos, so I thought I would share before it is gone.







Not sure if these photos will show or not.  One more:
