Sure there is. Add to the railroad a layer tag that has a higher value than the layer of the highway. Pathes with no layer tag are layer=0. So in your case make the railway layer=1, and tadaa: there is your railway.
If your railway underpasses any bridges, you might need to make abjustments there, e.g. make the bridge layer=2.
