To be perfectly pedantic, riding across that
section of rail wouldn't really be that bad.
When a 200K lb flatcar rolls over that, you can
guess that the rail goes bang, and not the car.
It's really noisy for the people that live
nearby, though.
And from the sheen on the rail, it appears that
this is a track that is used frequently enough
to keep the rust off of it. Is that correct?

Nope, that's rain on rust. Hasn't been anything much on these tracks in decades.
