Default Making Money With Train Photos

I'd like to know how someone can make money with their train photos.

A few years ago I scored a cover shot on a somewhat nationally know rail magazine and got paid $50.00 (which my lovely wife cashed and spent before I even saw the check!!). Other than that I haven't been too successful, haven't been trying too hard either.

So, wheres the $$$?? Magazines, books, advertisements, billboards, web, photo CD's (NOT PIRATED!!), EBay, ????

I'm not about to quit my day job but I'd like some ideas and hear some success/failure stories.

Normally, if not book publication, and I have no clue how much the photographer makes, I'd say from selling photos or slides at train shows. Some people have just sold roster shots of every engine they came across, while others have matted and framed prints that can go for a couple hundred dollars. No clue how much either set is making, probably only a weekend activity, except you may have to spend a number of hours in the darkroom during the week to prepare for what you are going to sell on the week end.
