I suggest to be able to build tunnels for ships to go under long railways build along the water.
This task depends upon

Reason for closing:  Won't implement
Additional comments about closing:  Although this would be fun, there will be substantial graphical issues: both default and newgrf ships tend towards being much larger than a 1 tile tunnel entrance can be. There is no viable solution to this that isn't too much work for too little benefit.

Flyspray clean up time, no route forward for this, so closing. Thanks.

Why not just take few parts of the railway away, lower land to sea-level and build railwaybridge?

I won't be able to do so if these were someone else's railway.

This may happen when there's a ship line like the one you build and a competitor raises the land. Then your ship will be blocked. By allowing tunnels for ships this won't happen again.

You can build an aqueduct nowadays. For ships there are technical difficulties not present for RVs and trains because ships are much bigger. It could be implemented, but it would look ugly (without more complex changes). This has been discussed at tt-forums.

Zdenek, how do you manage to build the raised water above the railway? Which procedure/tool do you use?
