I use a blend of both modes: Like Charles, if I know what the shot is going to be, I use AF to set the focal point, then switch my lens to MF mode and wait for the train to reach that spot (I learned 35mm photography using a Pentax body which had a split-ring focusing screen and never was able to adjust to Canon's "sharpness" screen). I used that method to create this shot, for example:
