Jack Greene, game designer, noted that there are some studies of railroad strategy in the American Civil War here.
This site looks to have a big assortment of military studies on all kind of subjects.

Thanks for the post. I think I have that one bookmarked (there's a few of these that look very similar) but glad to have a fresh look at it either way.

"I must not fear.
    Fear is the mind-killer.
    Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration.
    I will face my fear.
    I will permit it to pass over me and through me.
    And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path.
    Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain."  - Frank Herbert
