Land disposition after RR is abandoned : 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.

Thanks, Kirk

Response to Abandon railroad

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