There is an excellent hardback book out on the whole subject of the Chesapeake Beach and the East-Washington Railway by Ames Williams and is currently available NEW for $20 or so and is available from the Chesapeake Beach Rwy Museum in Chesapeake Beach, MD.
As for the right-of-way ... the Chesapeake Beach line is visible for much of the 28 miles or so in Maryland and the Chesapeake Beach Rwy Museum organizes a hike each year for a portion of the r-o-w, weather permitting around the first weekend in April. Inside the DC line it is more built up and IF you know where to look and and do not mind a less than desirable neighborhood and do NOT get out of your car while exploring, those 3 miles are at least partially findable. Having the book in hand helps though.
