I do not like the patch for 2 reasons:
1. Not commented well
2. (very biased opinion) it can be done in a much more elegant way using
customisable warmap generation.  In this way you just start to generate a
warmap and you stop once you reach a city not connected by the railway. 
Automatically it will be the nearest one.  Then you build a railway to
this city.

It would be very hard to come up with a proper weighing approach.  We can
fake it by introducing a nation-set fuzzy variable though.  Then the
nation authors can decide whether they want a railway or not.
