That's kind of what I was implying. Rob was suggesting he go slower with the ISO, which would result in having to go even slower with the shutter speed. And if the train is moving he's just going to have motion blur. If he increases the ISO 2-3 stops, allowing for a faster shutter speed to control the motion blur, he'll have wiggle room to underexpose. But yeah, the best bet is to shoot at an angle where the headlight isn't pointing directly at the camera lens.
Rhymes with slice, rice and mice, and probably should be spelled like "Tice."

This pretty much sums it up:
