For creating the map below, I used a shape file of old railroad beds in New York State provided by Russel Nelson. It just so happens that many of the segments have the word "trolley" in it, so it was easy to use a ARCGIS ESRI definition query to select those segments that the word "trolley" applies to. This map should be taken "as is" and I do not know if it is accurate, but it does show what can be done with shape files on the web. Of the 395 segments available, 60 have the word trolley and are shown in blue.
