Railroads in Upshur County

I am looking for the railroad that was in Upshur County (Gilmer) in and around 1885-1895. It has been told to me
that my great-grandfather, James William McCarley worked for the railroad, lived in Gilmer and built a house out of railroad ties there. I am new to genealogy and am groping for any information. He was married sometime in the mid 1880's to Emma Drew Figures from Jefferson, Marion, TX. Any information or help would be appreciated. You can email me direct. Thank you
