The PRO-164 is a excellent radio for scanning railroads.
By chance have you programmed the railroads into a bank that is not included in scanning and needs to be added into the scan ?

I'm 6-10 miles from the NS/CSX/BB mainlines here in Va and until I got a decent antenna outside (ST-2)and up in the air I couldn't hear the 3 railroads near me at all.
