Tips for Rails

Recently, I have been trying my hand at rails. I am able to comfortably ride all shapes of rails, and I am confortable on ride-ons, and cautiously comfortable on straight gap rails.

BUT, I would really like to get into some handrails. What are some tips for those "side-ollie" hand rails? I have gotten a few sketch ones in tonight when I went out, but I also had a nasty scorpion-esque fall on a flat gapped rail, and I filleted the skin off of both shins.

Overall, are there any tips for rails that more experienced riders can offer, such as the ollie on, approach, and getting off? That would be great to have here for the community.
