I set it in Av mode if it's moving and let the camera figure it out, or if it's not moving, manual mode. Track speeds are high here so if you're in manual mode you gotta know your gear and be quick with the dials.

pro tip, don't use polarizers or filters of any kind on anything less than 15 degrees head on from the train, you'll get reflections of the headlights on your image. even my 1,000-dollar L lenses do it. if you're trackside and shooting it head on coming at you do it filterless, otherwise use the filters as necessary.
