The "Anvilfire" web site has a page on railroad track anvils you might want to look at, as I recall they were all based on standing the track on end.

If your anvil has a hardie hole and just doesn't have good corners for pinching out the cutting edge, check this bottom set out at Blacksmith's Depot.
I do some demo's at the local antique club show and the county fair, our anvils are sway-backed and edges rounded or broken-out so I made one similar to the one at the link for when I demo knives at the shows. You could also go with a guillotine type tool or a spring fuller type tool to accomplish creating the initial pinch.
Hope that helps.
