I have researched the situation thoroughly (using a Google image search for CPR Christmas Train) and I have the solution for your shot next year: arrange for the train to pass your farm at twilight.

There, all solved.

I got it, thanks!   http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canadian_Pacific_Railway#Holiday_Train

Ok, will you call Hunter Harrison, or should I?   He is an American so you might have more clout.  But his trackage runs through my farm so maybe I have a bit more.

The other way is to go up the line a few hundred yards and pull the signal for the next block.  That will slow the rascal down to a walk, allowing for a long exposure on a tripod.

Please destroy this post as it might get me into trouble with the "watchers".

many thanks,
