Business cards with links to your photos help, especially when asked for your ID. I also explain that railroad photography is a hobby, and I'll show the shots on my camera or bring up my shots on RP or Flickr on my phone to show whoever is asking. It can certainly be annoying and a time waster having to explain yourself when you're not doing anything wrong, but it's also an opportunity to educate others about our hobby.

I'm more annoyed at the faceless morons looking to be the hero of the day who call me in as suspicious than I ever am at the cops. I know they're just doing their job, and I make sure I let them know I appreciate that. Fortunately, I've never had to defend my actions or quote my rights back to anyone trying to shoo me along...
