I believe the steam is added using old technology, not new, with a fog/steam machine. I can let you know for sure because tonight I will be doing night shoot set up by Peter Lerro!

Ah ha - The caption should have pointed that out, apologies Peter if you're reading this. I thought the steam effect looked VERY realistic - now we know why.

Thanks

When you expose for the moon, the stars aren't bright enough to saturate the film or sensor...generally. Look at my moon shot...the sky looks completely black. If I had exposed to get stars in the sky, the moon would have been blown out.

I realize that. The point of my question was aimed a the rest of the image. It seems to me (and I'm likely wrong), that the train and street lights were exposed long enough to have let us see a hint of stars.

Something else bothers me about the shot. Having just enjoyed shooting during the recent full moon, the moon cast such intense shadows that I would expect to see the train's shadow cast towards the camera. Walking around under street lights I found I had a shadow from a street light and from the moon.
