Have you ever tried panning with trains? Not sure how it would do in low light tho?

I was panning in these shots. And in these:

One problem with these fixed lens cameras is that you can't zoom while also taking pictures, so you can't zoom as the train gets nearer. My E-mount cameras are better in those circumstances, as you can zoom out as the train comes closer.

To get the sense of motion when panning I think you needed a slower shutter speed?

Yes, probably, but then people complain that the shots aren't sharp. You can't win. But the I think the smoke from the chimney does a pretty good job of conveying motion.

That could be caused by wind. Bill's right, good as the shots are they don't convey motion because the background is pin sharp and the wheels are pin sharp. To all intents and purposes the trains could be perfectly stationary.

This is where your chosen colour profile shines.
