Myself, hardly at all - unless you count being on duty at the time!
When not at work I keep away from the tracks - being a rail worker is not an excuse to trespass and my personal opinion is that you don't usually get the best pictures by being too close.
A few years ago we (myself & husband) paid a visit to a location that was at the start of a steep climb and surrounded by sand dunes. We settled down at the top of a cutting some distance from the tracks and had photographed several trains before we realised that we were in fact inside the boundary fence, it having been more or less totally covered by drifting sand. Technically were were trespassing though I doubt anybody official would have pushed the point.
