I reinstalled Railroads recently after upgrading to Vista and found that even after updating to 1.1 and updating my graphics card drivers it would crash randomly, but most likely when laying a big chunk of track that needs to terraform the landscape. I had the same problem in XP, but it happens far more often in Vista. I searched the 'net, and in case no-one here is aware of this I thought I'd post it. Many people on Hookedgamers.com swear by this 'self patch' at the very least to male the crash less likely to happen, Here it is; Note that you can replace the RailRoads.exe with Supreme Commander's exe and Stalker's exe. This fix was originally done for Supreme Commander and seems to be a problem in general with THQ games. Note that I don't really know how all this works...I just followed the instructions...I'll try and help if anyone has issues but you're more likely to get help by looking at the hookedgamer's thread here.
