I have used Ozark Miniture ties plates on code 250 Micro Engineering aluminum rail with good results. One trick I used to make it alot less tedius was to prebend the rail to the correct curve, put the rail upside down in some homemade wood gauge blocks, sand the rail bottom for good adhesion, then superglue the tieplates and the ties to the rail. Now turn it over and proceed to spike the tie plates in the temporary assembly. Use a popsicle stick under the tie your working on so that you have a good backing and don't pop the tie loose.
