Raildust is what is usually found on new cars fresh from the plant.

Alright guys, I just spent 5.5 hours detailing the exterior of my PWP and I got rid of 95% of my rail dust (other 5% I was just.. too tired to continue lol)
My rail dust was VERY bad after the winter.. some specs were almost 1cm in diameter. I regret not taking pics, but I didn't think what I did would make such a differance.
From what I gathered, rail dust is when tiny metal particles get stuck on your car... and then they begin to oxidize, causing the brown spots. Clay bars get rid of the metal specs.
Heres what I did:
First, wash the car..but don't dry it.
2. Use the clay bar with detailing spray (should come with the clay bar if you bought Meguiars or Mother's brand) This only takes away the metal specs... but some of the rust specs still stayed for me
3. Go over the spot with a buffer + scratch remover ( I used Mother's scratch remover)
I used some cheap simoniz 10" random orbital from Canadian Tire..
With the buffer, alot of the specs would have gone away..
4. Some of the bigger specs or the more stubborn specs will still be noticable. Go over these with a MF towel, scratch remover, and alot of rubbing lol.
So after doing all those steps, most of the rust specs were gone for me.
If you don't have a buffer, you can go over every single one individually with the MF towel + scratch remover, but it takes alot of time and lots of rubbing lol.
Good luck... it worked for me!
