When I had the D700 (although I never used it for trains) I never used d-lighting - I mean, I always shot RAW so it didn't make a different. If I was shooting jpeg, I would use it - It exposes to preserve the highlights (same way as I shoot) and brings up shadow detail that would otherwise be lost to black in the conversion. It's the next best thing to RAW for tonal range, and tonal range is something I hold dear and abuse regularly!
