Someone once suggested to me to stop leveling the ground, and instead build on the existing ground (that is, no terra-forming). It made a huge difference. Suddenly I had to cope with height differences, run amount hills instead of through it, etc. Especially early in the game where trains aren't that powerful, it's much more challenging to get a nicely running network.
Having non-flat ground also immediately fixes your need for patterns, every point in the map is different, so pre-fabricated patterns simply don't fit.
