I have an example of an embankment situation.
See http://www.openstreetmap.org/?lat=-37.72361&lon=144.86789&zoom=17
freight rail line is on an embankment over Steele Creek, which goes
through a
"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.
