Hmmmm. So then I have to ask myself would I find it more visually distracting to have the rails be nickle-silver colored only at the turnouts and crossovers while the rest of the track had silver rails, or have the whole track be wrong colored to my eye? Decisions, decisions. Fortunately it's all still theoretical as we have yet to even build benchwork much less lay track, but this issue is one I have to make a decision about before we purchase a thousand dollars worth of track with the wrong color rails. I'm still hoping to hear from folks who have used both NS and steel, and can give a meaningful comparison.
