If world not flat why train rails not curved?

They technically are curved slightly, but not enough for you to notice.

They are. But the curves are so slight you cannot see them.

If you could see them over a few hundred miles, you would notice the curvature, but it is too slight to notice normally. The Earth is approx 25 THOUSAND miles in circumference.

Stand in the middle of a long straight railroad track and see how they meet in the far distance. If they were not curved they would never meet.

They are curved to fit the earths circumference, that's the way they are made!!!
