A class I railroad just bought some pictures I have on rp.net for decent money as a result of a "contact the photographer" email here. Overall I've made more money from contacts through rp.net than Flickr, but then I've never put as much on or as much work into Flickr. Flickr can be good but you have to put more work into it to build a network and socialize than simply putting pictures on rp.net (despite the screening process). I still see rp.net as being the number 1 "stock photography" site for general train pictures (as in the place people look the most for finding good train pictures). There are some great photographers on Flickr though, including many people who also post pictures here.

My 2 cents,
Michael
