I'd say head up to Autozone or O'riely's, whatever you local parts store is, and have them use a scan tool to pull the DTC's and that will tell you quite specifically whats going on.

Check your front o2 sensor, make sure it is not bent, or the wires damaged. You may have scraped your header a little while going over the tracks, and it bashes the front o2 sensor into the engine. I have done that with mine a few times.[:(!]

Most likely, they're not related.
Chances are, you did lose traction over the tracks, and it activated the TC.
I see it all the time on the on-ramps to the interstate here.
They've all got "cattle guards" on them.
My TC light will flash when I go over them at...a...let's say..."spirited" rate of acceleration. [;)]
