I personally have had a problem with those trying to tell us to turn railroad photography into an "art form." It's fine for them to do so, I welcome it in fact, but what I do have a problem with is that the practitioners of the more "arty" shots, I have found, tend to look down their nose's at others who are shooting more "mundane" shots.
Railroad photography is what you make of it, but one way is not "better" than another, IMHO. Unless you have a pole right thought the nose of the engine! -SG

Jabs and stabs can be fun but I don't think Gord ask for that. I do wonder If he will see what's not working. The old standred of 1/500th at F8 is hard to beat and work from there

Yea set up is the key, To nailing it every time. I don't know your camera but on Canons you can take the AF off the stutter button so the camera wont focus every time you shoot. With that I just focus on the spot I want it and as it get there all I have to worry about is if it's cropped right. J is right I don't care if you can hold it or not at 1/250th or less as F 8 to 10 is all you want or need 95% of the time. So 1/500 or higher F8 or so and keep the ISO under 400 or less is the help you need.

On pages 130-137 it shows an AF button on the back and if you have the camera on one shot just focus at a spot the trains going to be and shoot way.
