For those wondering how railroads handle multiple track in their operating, 
financial statistical analysis,  the AAR makes a distinction between roadway 
mileage operated, and track mileage operated.  Roadway mileage is 
distinguished from track mileage by:

 "Miles of roadway excludes yard tracks and sidings, and does not reflect 
the fact that a mile of road may include two, three, or more parallel 
tracks. U.S. railroads also control an additional 417 miles of road in 
Canada and Mexico."

AAR definitions.

Track mileage accounts from multiple tracks and sidings.
