I think every amateur, pro or in between has done just what you did with many variations, certainly me for one. I am finding that the custom settings are a boon for at least a Base Settings mode. Grab the camera, turn to C1, C2 etc and at least know you are close.

Good idea.  With the new camera I haven't set it up that way yet.

The use of burst mode, multi shots and trust were the big ones IMHO, and the 14-140mm while a great daylight lens, is no good for night shooting at any ISO.

I agree with both.

A good lesson learned for sure, regardless of the facts stated above which were all essentially correct, it would have been a hard shot to get for anyone.

I'll try a few of freight trains coming by next summer ... when it is a lot warmer!!

Good luck next Christmas...

Thanks, I hope that I'll be able to post a good "After" image after the above "Before" image.
