The problem is that the expanding rail will not slip in the ties


That's the argument for 'floating' track. My layout had Llagas aluminum code 250 rail with s/s rail joiners placed on a flat ballast of crushed rock. It wasn't fastened down at all, except by the action of the ballast. It stayed roughly in place and never gave me a problem - and we go from 0 to 100 degrees here too.
