One of the best resources for locating old railroad lines is aerial photographs. I've been using Google Earth for a few weeks and with some practice you can spot lots of old rail lines, even ones that have become overgrown with weeds.

This is one of the Manayunk bridge in Philadelphia.

The West Shore of the New York Central
The Peoria & Eastern Railway
Troy & Schenectady Railroad
