As I said before, it's unrealistic, and also, I like the fact that
building railroads is a two-edged sword.  That makes it a strategic
decision whether and where to build them.

On the contrary, it is very realistic because it is highly unlikely that the enemy would let you use their railroad system BEFORE you have taken over their territory. Roads, maybe they can't do much about that. But railroads? No way!
