Splitting a line  where it crosses polygon boundary

Hi everyone,

 

I have a simple railway line, linking two rail stations, which is defined by a polyline array and a polygon feature class representing land value. I need to be able to attribute each railway segment with the land value that it falls within. The tricky part is that the railway crosses different land value boundaries and I need to be able to split it at the boundary so each segment will only fall within one land value. Does anyone have accomplished problem like this using Python? Or is there any way to do it using geometry objects? Or might there be a different solution I'm missing?

Any help and suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

 

Many thanks,
