Sorry, I didn't explain these:
"out of service" means the railroad chooses not to run trains. But
they might change their mind.
"abandonment" is a big legal step, where the land might revert to the
people that owned it before the railroad, and the railroad is really
really done with it. In the US, this has to be approved by the
Surface Transportation Board.
See http://www.abandonedrails.com/Watertown_Branch for an example.
