Bracketing can help but as with any other system you need to practise to know how much compensation to dial in. Telephoto lenses will need more than wide-angles which give the metering system more scene and less headlight (proportionally speaking) to "read". As stated, if you have time try to meter the scene before the train arrives and shoot in manual mode. If the light changes rapidly you can always switch over to program mode and cross your fingers.
