I recently bought the Canon 8-15 and I have been very happy with it. A fisheye may not be a lens you will use every day, but I do feel that it deserves a spot in most peoples kit and it adds some variety to your portfolio. I have not taken many railroad images with it, however a few examples are below.

A nice, cheap alternative is the Pro-optic 8mm. It sells for around $300. The lens is very, very soft at F3.5, but once you stop down a little it becomes quite sharp. It is 100% manual.
