Richard mentions sticking with steel rail which will of course look realistic! I had always assumed that the shift from steel to nickel silver track was because the NS needed less care and attention; obviously NS won't rust although we like the rust look for the sides but goes dull like brass - as is clearly explained above.

Is NS track cheaper to produce than steel or, if not, why the change by the manufacturers? On the other hand does steel track look good but need more TLC? I'm intrigued...
