I find myself in problems a lot with the axis rail cap management.
Does it ever go up? Does it go down?

It should go down when you start losing Axis home towns with railyards. Capturing towns with railyards of another nationality does not increase it - so what you start with in turn 1 should be the most you can ever have.

Axis rail cap is usually less of a problem than it is for the Soviets. Nevertheless I find it useful to make a plan turn by turn of how much you will use. You can see the arrivals you will have each turn, and when units unfreeze. When 2nd army unfreezes (if you want to use rail to get it to the front quickly) is an early peak. When Axis allies such as the Italians and Hungarians suddenly unfreeze are others. Other turns you will have more than enough. Beware that the quickest route to the front is frequently through Rumania which takes two turns of rail cap. Once you know how much you absolutely need to use you can then use whatever is left to replace normal vehicle based overland transport where possible. For instance I tend to rail army group HQs or rearrange garrisons by rail, but only when I know there will be plenty of rail cap that turn.
