A couple of things I forgot whilst typing out the above:

Always go railfanning and take pictures for your enjoyment - taking stuff specifically for RP (or any other site) - is a quick way to frustration.

Take your camera out and just take photos, anything, it doesn't have to be trains. Get used to handling it, find out what all the different buttons do, see what works and what doesn't; unlike film there is a delete facility on the PC and you can view your pictures without sending them off / taking them to a lab and waiting for the results to come back, the exif data will even tell you what settings you used without having to write it down or try and remember them
