Right. Expose for the train/scene/whatever, then expose for the lights. Create a separate layer with the "expose for the lights" shot, and then using a layer mask, "paint" out the blown lights exposing the properly exposed lights on the layer below. Combine layers, VOILA!

It's so brainlessly easy, I don't know why more people don't do it.
Rhymes with slice, rice and mice, and probably should be spelled like "Tice."

This pretty much sums it up:
