As an offshoot of my modeling hobby, I have taken a number of pictures of railroad equipment. I also feel it's important to have representative shots of "normal" prototype equipment too. My eye, though, does tend to gravitate towards cars & power with "character". While graffiti is not something I condone, it is a fact of life these days, and does add color to railroads.

I've organized these alphabetically, vs. chronologically, and not every country has its photos yet uploaded (December 2012).Argentina
Yo es mi esposa also went to Argentina for a week in early 2009. I didn't do much railfanning there, but we were right across from the main train station in Buenos Aires, so of course I had to get some pictures.

My wife and I made a trip to Kazakhstan in 2004. As I was there for 5 weeks, I brought my camera and had a chance to wander around a bit. I spent most of my time in Uralsk, a small city in eastern part of the country. There was a small station with a classification yard that saw some action. I also spent a week or so in the capital, Almaty, and had a quick tour through the main passenger station.

Slovenia didn't have a lot of railroad related stuff, but it did have a pretty cool museum in Ljubljana. This was maybe the most interesting thing I've ever seen:
Yes, it's a motorcycle on rails.
