You get what you pay for. Getting a hi-res scan of an image and processing it is very time consuming.

I usually go as high as 800 with 1000 being the absolute limit. If you run an iso 800 image image through Noiseware PRO, you can make it look like iso 200 and not lose too many details. I used to use...

It's probably wind. I usually block the camera and lens with a jacket after releasing the shutter. Seems to fix the issue.

A pan shot is when you stand in a spot and following the train with your camera. If you are in a car alongside a moving train, that's a pacing shot. Set your camera to a slow shutter speed and track...

I actually like the shot. The only thing I would have done different is waited till the train was just a bit closer, and I would have aimed the camera higher. The one distracting part of the shot is...

The shot would have been a winner had you released the shutter when the lead unit was where the second auto rack is. All I see is the top of the power silhouetted which completely kills it for me. If...

I don't think that this'd make it in. You cropped off the rear of the locomotive and its kind of weird how you only got part of the other unit in. Next time move a little closer to the tracks! Also...

The train is way too far on the left. From you're image, I'd do something like this. I also corrected the colors a little bit and the red on the nose looks a little blown out.
