I have a project wherein having train route information would be useful. Like if I could get GPS coordinates that form the routes themselves I could do maps like https://www.amtrak.com/track-your-train.html using the Simple Polylines API on Google Maps.

Is that stuff publicly available? I'm most specifically interested in this for Texas railroads: https://ftp.txdot.gov/pub/txdot-info/tpp/maps/2016-railroad.pdf

    the PDF you link has some vector mapping underneath. I'm thinking it's possible to extract the geodata, see, for example, here: gis.stackexchange.com/q/169472/112869 (if that's the case, it may be a better question for the GIS site)

    Did you contact the Tx DOT?
