Well, I think you'd be better starting out with a wider aperture. You shot that a f10. f5.6 would have enabled you to shoot closer to 1/250th. However, that may not have been fast enough either, so bumping the ISO up from 100 to 200 would have allowed you to shoot at 1/500. So, f5.6, 1/500th and ISO 200 would have given you a similar exposure and froze the train.
Rhymes with slice, rice and mice, and probably should be spelled like "Tice."

This pretty much sums it up:
