Land disposition after RR is abandonedgreenspun.com : LUSENET : ACL and SAL Railroads Historical Society : One Thread
I am interested in knowing what happens to land a railroad owns when they abandon the rail. I have recently purchased a parcel of property that has a old railroad bed running through it, how do I go about purchasing the railroad bed.

The short answer is, talk to a lawyer. State laws can and do vary.
