I have an example of an embankment situation.
See http://www.openstreetmap.org/?lat=-37.72361&lon=144.86789&zoom=17 The
freight rail line is on an embankment over Steele Creek, which goes
"tunnel" (culvert) under the embankment. The Western Ring
Road motorway just to
the NW is instead two bridges over the creek.
I could swear it used to show up on one of the renderer layers, but not now.
Might be because of all the Mapnik style changes they have been working on.
