I agree Alex. Sharing the work will speed up it because this import can
only be done manually.

The import has to be done manually because tracks might have an offset
at OSM due to a Bing offset and milestones are not mapped on siding,
yard and spur tracks.

You should split up the data in smaller pieces or create a WMS which
serves it. You already have a shapefile, lots of WMS servers/their
database backend have an hapefile import.

Best regards
