It is a problem of the Max object that you use to define the library item: it must be a full RailClone object, not a simple mesh.

Basically this should be the procedure to create a library item:

1) Create a full RailClone object, including all their segments, parameters and so.
2) Save it in a Max file.
3) Add the library item, selecting the object/scene created above.
