I would then use curves or even brightness to boost the mid-tones so that the whites on the locomotive start looking white, and the concrete beams in that bridge look more like mid-day, not half an hour after sunset.

If it's raw, it's fixable.
Thanks I tried all of that.

They hit for underexposed first..

Fixed the exposure then they hit for cloudy. I guess that's what I get for playing with moldy oldies..
