Chiming in my +1 to everything recently said here about OSM's TIGER data (and cats and such) in the USA.

I'd like to remind everybody that most RAIL data in the USA are largely from that same TIGER import.  Since about 2014, USA rail data have improved to a moderate degree, though spottily, especially with the advent of OpenRailwayMap and OpenPublicTransportMap rendering overlays.  Somewhat using a state-at-a-time approach (Alaska, California, Montana, New Mexico...), we have been improving rail data as we document how in our wikis.  To get started in YOUR state, please take a look at https://wiki.osm.org/wiki/WikiProject_United_States_railways and begin to fall down the rabbit hole.  Rail mapping is fun!
