Have you had a look at the MERG website? Model Electronics Railway Group
They probably have a few projects related to RFID.
For integration with computer control, JMRI might have some interfaces/modules for it?

It is possible that some computer control systems use 'dead reckoning' for basic train location information. Once the software knows how far the speed steps sent to a loco will send it, they can start from a known position and keep track by knowing the route it took.

If you have a RailCom capable DCC controller and decoders, installing a RailCom detector will report the number of the loco passing by. This can be picked up by the train controller software. Whilst RailCom support comes 'for free' in the controller and decoders, the detectors are quite expensive.
