Sorry if I repeat what someone else said. I am guessing the problem you are having is that the shot is way under-exposed because of the bright headlights? Shoot in manual. Before the train gets there aim in direction and adjust to proper exposure. It has to be in maual, in A,S or P the headlight will re-adjust the the settings. Funny thing is, even with the background being properly exposed the headlights are not that much brighter.

On a side not ditch any fitlters. If you want to protect your front element use your hood and lens cap. Even the clear filters cause ugly ghosting.

My bad you are asking about stars, shot at F/11-F/16. Some lenses just do not do a good job at producing it.
