Also, if shooting black locomotives (steam or Norfolk Southern), RAW is safer as the light meter is often thrown.

Lastly (and I know I'll get flamed for this, but it's my experience)... if using Rebel, you'll find the RAW is more necessary, as the camera is more likely to have missed the correct exposure, while on a 40D or 50D, I think you'll find you aren't as likely to have to do rescue jobs on AV and TV shots.
