It takes a lot more than 50 feet. In fact they will use the rail to take massive amount of land. The old railroads took 1 mile of land on either side of them and they always happened to build them so they usually went through mineral or oil rich areas. Coincidence?
 Quoting: Kodiak Island


The transcontinental railroad was given a checkerboard pattern consisting of one mile squares (640 acres)of government land for ten miles on either side of the railway this amounted to 6,400 acres of land for every mile of track that was laid.

And the railroads have been broke ever since.
 Quoting: R&y


You mean guys like Warren Buffet are broke?

Railroads were the largest land owners ever! Most of the huge cities and towns grew up around that land owned by the railroad. The value of that land is enormous! The material wealth in minerals and oil are incalculable.

How do you figure they are broke? Maybe they claimed to be broke on paper and moved assets to other corporations but those railroads made those people trillions and trillions in inflation adjusted dollars.
