    There are so many dept's that you would have to narrow it down, there is the Locomotive, both diesel/elec and overhead powered.
    There is track and signal control, Rail testing, Railroad component part assembly and manuf such as CNC plant machinery.
    What country do you wish to operate in?

    Google comes up with Railroad Engineering courses and colleges but Railroad Electronics seems to be a subset of Railroad Engineering.

    My brother and I recently did a little retro-fit of some 1950's units from Ohio for Can Pac.
    They needed Dynamic braking for operating in the Rockies.
    The old DC brushed motors.

    They just don't make diesels anywhere near as pretty as those anymore.

    I am not sure if you are going to find extensive documentation on a web site, it is usually a case first of a formal study of electrical distribution and then seek out documentation from big names in this field is Brown-Boveri (ABB Group) and Siemens for two.
    In N.A. GM is high on the list of technology, but not that many overhead systems in N.A.
