Looks like it might be terminal. I don't think anything can be done to it without horribly overexposing the photo. How long did you have the shutter open? A longer exposure time might have helped.

Way too much contrast. Do not use a flash when shooting a train (unless you can paint the train with multiple flashes). A flash is meant to expose an object at a specific distance from the camera. When you take a wedge shot, the train varies from a few feet to over a hundred feet away, therefore only a single distance will be exposed correctly.

Use a tripod and use available light.
