Ummm.... the only thing I can think of off hand that looks like a railroad track is the "sharp" symbol - as in F#. Get on a search engine and look for "music notation". You'll be able to find all the notations you could ever want, and then some.

I don't know if it has a technical name, but the symbol you're referring to looks like this: //

It means come to complete stop. It does not indicate a fermata. Oh wait I know it's technically called a "Grand Pause"
