Railroad Line Staking

Your input would be appreciated, what is the most efficient way to calculate,layout and quality control the staking of railroad lines? We currently have a rail project but the project surveyor is using alignments to stake out the centerline of track, there are multiple steps in the data collector to set one point...picking on a line,toggling to find station and offset . I've always calculated points for roads, pipe lines etc from plans using dwgs and post processed as stake reports in TBC to check accuracy. Alignment verses points?
Your input would be appreciated!
Thank You, Paul
