Norm Cohen's Long Steel Rail: The Railroad in American Folksong, 2nd ed. (University of Illinois Press, 2000) is the best.

If you up to the righhand corner of this page to the Lyrics and Knowledge Search, then put "@railroad" without the quotation marks in the search box, then hit the Search button and be a little bit patient, dozens of raailroad-related songs in the Digital Tradition Database (with over 8,000 songs in it), aka The DT, will come up, as well as dozens of threads about specific songs and other related subjects.

Here's a link to Utah Phillips.

"Long Steel rail" as Masato says.

More general information as well in "A Treasury of American Railroad Folklore" edited by Benjamin A Botkin and Alvin F Harlow; Bonanza Books, 1953; ISBN 0-517-168685; Library of Congress Catalogue Card No 53-9973.
