Railroads built in previous centuries not only impacted the physical landscape and continue to do so, but they also came with federal laws to ensure their use and proprietary control of them that continue to impact title claims to this day. Due to the inherent complexity of the situation, conflicts inevitably arise and there are legal experts who specialize in real estate law and legal relics of the past that continue to affect our land today.
