If they are going to use your image to sell their product, they absolutely should pay you some amount of money. Although model railroading is a relatively small market and even the "bigger fish" in the business aren't exactly big corporations, if they can pay for advertising space in MR and RMC they can certainly pay for your photo as well. If it truly is a shot you can't get again (and if you value the rights to your photo more than some extra money in your pocket), I'd pass on their offer. I'm sure they'll find someone else's photo to use.
