mitch and Dave are both right. But if your friend is still uncertain, tell him to do a test shot on Shutter Priority before the train arrives, then change the camera to M to the settings it was on on Shutter Priority. The bad thing about this? The camera doesn't know when it's setting it's settings if you're shooting a 45 mile per hour freight or a fast going passenger train. Best bet? Learn M. Let the mistakes be yours because you'll eventually learn Manual while the camera keeps selecting random settings.
