If your property is next to a railroad right-of-way (railway) that is being converted from a railway into a recreational trail, the federal government may owe you compensation. It is established law that the federal government must pay you for the portion of your land that is currently the railway or once was a railway that is now being converted into a trail. Since the railway was an easement granted to the railroad, you may still hold title to the land.
Our firm has experience handling lawsuits asserting the property rights of landowners against the federal government. These lawsuits are referred to as "Rails-to-Trails" cases.
