Maybe, the OpenRailwayMap mailing list openrailwaymap at openrailwaymap.org <mailto:openrailwaymap at openrailwaymap.org> might be helpful? I can not access their archives so I do not know if it is active, but it might be worth a try.

I say 'picture' because it wouldn't be connected for routing purposes, but it should appear connected on a map tile.   I have no idea how much additional work that would be for OpenRailwayMap to show.
