Removing the 20 minute rule for freight would mean a huge makeover the industrial part, that is work for atleast an expansion or even TF 2, but I know, what you mean, it feels akward to see factories in the middle of nowhere producing nothing, because the matching industries are outside the 20 minute radius.
They should always produce and deliver their good to the nearest customer, no matter how far they have to go.
Then your job is only to decrease the travel time of the goods by delivering them with your faster trains and trucks.

Yes things like non upgradeable roads when they cross raillines aren’t good, but I’m sure, they’ll change this eventually.

I never had terrain issues when building over a flat piece of land, I only have this sometimes when I build double/multitrack tunnels or bridges and the game gives out “terrain collision” or when I try to build out of a high elevated station. But most of the times, I find the issue and can solve it, it isn’t very obvious in the most cases, you need experience with the game for that, but I agree, this could be improved and more intuitive.

But I can’t confirm your problems with passenger train lines. All my lines have more than one station, in my actual game, my minimum is 3 stations with my second passenger line but those towns have a very long distance between them so in track length, it equals my first, some kilometers away parallely running, train line.
All of them make a profit.
So there must be a problem with your line management, maybe you use too less trains so you only attract a little number of passengers or you use too many trains and most of them drive near empty thus making debt.
