Rails-to-Trails Conservancy’s September 2013 report titled America’s Rails-with-Trails Report (http://www.railstotrails.org/resourcehandler.ashx?id=2982) provides helpful information in understanding transportation networks with both multi-purpose trails and active rail lines.

The report includes examples and characteristics of rails-with-trails projects and when the report was released, it identified 161 rails-with-trails projects across 41 states with more than 50 such projects in the development phase.
