Thanks to the Op for posting - great discussion here. I like the idea of adding some light.

You're  welcome!

I even considered driving my 4 WD truck to a strategic position and leaving the lights on high beam ... but a bit toooo much snow for that.  Maybe next year.  That would help (maybe a stop) in lifting the shadows on the train (if I wanted that, artistically), but not the overexposure, of course.

I should also add that a friend made a video of the train using an iPhone.   Not too great.   Also overexposed.

I am also considering better locations, where I have some ambient security and/or street lighting.  (see first para re using truck lights)

I just went to Lightroom and checked what I did.  VERY LITTLE SHADOW LIFTING, moved the white point and the highlights ALL of the way to the left.

I'll check it out in RawDigger and post the results.
