low embankment
Explanation:
"fylling' can mean filling, padding, level etc but here in a railway, I think embankment would fit.

The first reference brings you to a PDF report of a rail route including satisfactory 'lav fylling/skaering' = low embankments/shallow cuttings.

The second reference talks of low levels in reservoirs.
