I too have found many books from the same site that Ray found

If you search for "railroad" and select "all media types".... be prepared to fill up your hard drive.

I have grabbed many books to help in my design stages...and those for help in kit-bashing and scratch-building.

There are a few Car Builders Dictionary (different issues), many handbooks and field books for the railway engineers, there are a few magazines too (American Engineer, Railway Age, Railway Mechanic) and a 9 volume "Cyclopedia" on Civil engineering for the railway. There are a couple of books on Railway Structures, one on building them and one on their cost estimations. All interesting scale drawings that might be used on our layouts.
