I /do/ spawn diamond tools. And you wouldn't believe how many I've gone through. Dozens
of picks. Probably over a hundred now. As for rail tracks, etc. None involved in the
pyramid. :) I'll soon be doing some redstone circuitry to add decoration to things,
although that may wait until the next release now, since I heard they're adding some new
circuitry stuff.

What really helped speed things up was the release of charcoal. Having to rely on coal
was a major bottleneck, but now I can just go plant a stack of saplings, let them grow,
and harvest 8+ stacks of wood (and 3-4 stacks of saplings) from them, then turn it all
into charcoal.
