Engineer ran good railroad (7)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

dragoon

Here is my best explanation:

'railroad' is the definition.

('dragoon' can be a synonym of 'railroad')

'engineer ran good' is the subsidiary indication.

'engineer' is an anagram indicator.

'ran'+'good'='rangood'

'rangood' with letters rearranged gives 'dragoon'.

This clue was last seen in The Times

(Other definitions for dragoon that I've seen before include "Soldier", "Browbeat", "Old heavy cavalryman", "[CARIBINEER]?", "Constrain", "Cavalier", "bully", "Cavalryman; coerce (into doing something)", "Cavalry officer" and "Harass".)
