Some hobby shops will have RR map books (DeLorme), that will show the route each RR takes from city to city. If you are in a small town, it would be pretty easy to figure out, knowing only one or two railroads pass through that town. In cities, there are tracks everywhere, and these books may not be detailed enough to tell one from the other (sometimes there are multiple railroads with tracks beside each other).
There are places where two or more railroads share each others track, so seeing a particular train does not always mean they own the tracks.

Probaby the best thing to tell you is try and find a local railfan who can help educate you on the local activities.
