I've been in western PA, eastern OH, and northern MD for the past week and couldn't respond. I once ran into this issue myself. My brother is a private practice attorney in Dallas and I asked him about it. He said that any photo you take automatically has a copyright unless you've signed that right away. According to what he told me, the railroad is illegally using your photo and you can demand payment. What I did in my instance was send the company an invoice with letter of explanation, and when I got no response after two weeks I had my brother send one to their legal department. I would ask for $500 here, so it's worth doing.
