I just came across a very interesting reference resource, thanks to a link on a French modeling forum. This site has several digitized books by Walter Gilman Berg, which feature plans and info about railroad structures:

One of the books is titled, "Buildings and Structures of American Railroads", and is a reference book for railroad managers, superintendents, architects, etc.

There is also a similar book on American railway bridges and structures, and another on railway shop systems.

They can all be viewed online, downloaded to an ebook, or downloaded as a pdf.
