    I doubt anything will be found as railroad tracks get refurbished often and sometimes even moved. There's bound to be much iron and other junk there too.

    Yes but possibly Junk with a Documented History

    Makes it worthy of being called "Junque"

    junque
    Seemingly useless or out-of-date items with a certain je ne sais quoi. The "another man's treasure" part of the old saw.
    "I always find some neat junque when I go to the flea market."

    Identifiable pieces of something like These ticket wagons,
    Could probably
    be Display worthy

    I was referring to the more modern junk that accumulates on tracks. I still can't discount your finding of junque though.
