  • If the railroad right-of-way is unused and indistinguishable from the landholder’s adjacent properties, I would be sympathetic to his claims on a de-facto adverse possession basis. But if a railroad is already there, and the question is about replacing it with a bike trail, I fail to see how he is being harmed. To me, this second sort of property claim is in a similar moral category to copyright trollery and patent trollery.
