No, sorry: it doesn't load a Rails environment at all, just vanilla
Active Record.

The Rails environment has no bearing on Active Record in isolation,
beyond choosing the default database connection:
  $ grep -r RAILS_ENV lib/ |grep -v svn|wc -l
         2

Your Rails app reloads application classes during development so some
AR caches, like the per-class table metadata, are wiped as a result.
