Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

For applying to a project I would like to find out the length of all power (power=line) and railway lines (railway=rail) mapped by me.

Is there any way to find this out – maybe with osmium? I'm ready to go at great lengths, e.g. getting this information from a global dumpfile (if it fits into my 32 GB of memory).

Depending on the how spread out the areas in wich you mapped railways and whether you want to include lines later edited by other mappers, you could try downloading via Overpass in JOSM (see https://overpass-turbo.eu/s/yWD , which will find a few bits of railway mapped by you).

The code I entered into the wizard: type:way & railway=rail & user:Druzhba

Once you have the lines in JOSM, just do Ctrl-F type:way to see the total length at the lower edge of the window.

Thanks for your answers. Is it possible, that the URL was truncated?

Sorry,the trailing comma wasn't supposed to be a part of the link. I've fixed it now
