hmmmm.... why not offset the two soldering points by a few ties? Then you can hold onto the ties all the way, while only cutting away the part under the rail. If you can get clear with just the part between two ties for soldering, you might even save the tie stub on the outside of the track.
I am not 100% happy with the looks of the track with the missing tie but I hope it will look better ballasted.
I haven't tested it yet, but another Z-scaler recommended the Star Tec 081 soldering station to me. It has a really fine tip.
I only have to find a fine enough point for my soldering iron and then I will try that.
