there are tags to describe the color of railway lines typically used in
maps, see here: http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:colour?uselang=en-US
It is not completely clear what a "private" railway is, many former federal
railways have been privatized in the last few decades, btw. also the JR has
been privatized in 1987 (meaning operating as a private company for the
law), but AFAIK is still 100% state owned.
