I can't comment why the AI doesn't built as much railroads as in the
previous versions.

I have a new client side engineers and settlers task management called
SettlerManagementAgent (SMA). While I can't say that it performs
better than the current auto-settler it is written from scratch with
good diagnostics. So if it wouldn't built as many railroads as you
like you we can change the parameters. As an extra bonus it will also
build cities.

While to code for SMA is ready required support code isn't yet
included in freeciv. So I can't tell an exact time of inclusion.
