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

I download some shapefile on http://download.geofabrik.de/ ,I found that it doesnt contain unused railway\abandoned railway.why? I think these old feature class really had their values.it still can show the direction for you . i suggest geofabrik can add them to shp.

The shape files are provided "as is" as a free service by Geofabrik. I'm sure they would be happy to provide alternatives as part of a commercial relationship. Alternatively you can roll your own using one or more of osmosis, overpass, osmconvert, osmfilter and ogr2ogr.

yep, the tools mention in the second part of my answer, specifically ogr2ogr. The others are probably needed if you wish to filter out railways.
