We ended up lowering the grade and putting in pumping station for the drain water. You don't want to mess with the railroad grades or crossings.
I never understood the logic of those who will not admit the railroads were there FIRST. Then they build a house or road nearby and want the RR to move the tracks/bridge, underpass, erect a wall to quiet the noise, etc.
A couple decades ago, a nearby city asked the RR to build a new set of tracks AROUND the city to ease congestion.
That flew like a lead airplane.

Railroads were there first and do have the right of way. But it does seem like they are very reluctant to make changes to mitigate traffic problems.

I have "interacted" with the railroad a couple times and found it was not a great working relationship.

Let's see, RR owns their property, pays taxes on that property, maintains that property at their expense, road gets built, someone builds road underpass either because RR wouldn't allow road to cross at grade, or planners didn't want traffic stopped by trains, and now some would expect RR to foot the bill? Right.
