Depends on who is making the purchase and how the image will be used /how many people will see it and who.

I typically ask: "What do you typically budget for a photo purchase such as this?". You should at least get a starting point to work with. Some folks, such as the German magazine you are referring to will have a set price. Others will have flexible pricing that you'll need to negotiate. Most, however, will disappear off the face of the Earth, never to be heard from again.

If I recall correctly, the German magazine pays quite well - for a railfan magazine. Along the lines of what Trains would pay and a free issue. $30 bucks give or take $10, depending on the size of the image.
