Hi All,
 
Usually my favorite photograph is the one of the steamer that I have seen last, or better yet, got into its cab.  
This is my favorite Prairie, 2-6-2, # 2 Ventura County RR, still active at the Orange Empire RR Museum, Perris, CA.    
 
Enjoy

This is probably my fav that I have taken.  It is of the East Broad Top #15 (narrow guage) being studied by a young railfan while the excursion picniced at Colgate Grove before returnung to Rockhill Furnace, PA.  The sun was too bright, but I still like it for the esthetic qualities.
 
***Note***  After placing this photo on railfan.net, I decided to place on RP.net again, and it finally got accepted.  I must have tweaked something right this time.
RP photo uploaded in place of original.

I have at least three railroad pictures I liked but one is in the railroad meusium in Machester Shortsville, NY, one I need a scanner to put on here, and another that I can.
  The one in the Meusium in Shortsville NY is the Steamtown  
Big- Boy  going over the Route 21 Overpass on it's way to the original site of the Steamtown meusium,  The other  photo I like that needs a scanner to put on here is from Steamtown in Scrannton PA.  
It shows a 0-4-0 tank next two the Big-Boy and it looks like a tonka toy.
   The last one is the NYCRR budd-car with a jet engine on it being tested in Ohio.

February of 2007, I had a chance to travel out to the North side of the Great Salt Lake and shoot the Union Pacific along the famous Lucin Cutoff.  Here at the end of the road, where the right-of-way strikes out across the lake, you can see for miles and miles.  UP 6493 is on the point as it takes a freight westbound towards Nevada and on to California.  It's single track atop the causeway, that's continually under assault from wind, water and heavy salt.  The tracks attest to the rust that builds so fast.
 
I love this shot for it shows how weather and the environment can dramatically effect railroading, and the drama of distance across which trains must work.

WOW!    There are some WONDERFUL pictures here!  
 
Here's one of my favorites, from the Georgetown Loop.

Also, here's one of BNSF in Burlington, IA that I like.  It's a little dark, though.

Also, these:

Also, I have a few favorites from the 15" gauge where I work.  Here they are.

Hello,
 
 A tough question!  I guess it includes other photos than one's own.  For now I'll narrow it down to my pics.
 
 I don't know for sure if this is my favorite, but it seems to be everyone else's.    I hope the link works.

Here are some of my favorite pics.
 
First one, shot out the window of our coach, a Vermont Railway freight passes through the Bellows Falls, VT yard just before departure on the Green Mountain Railroad.
