the last river poisoned, only then will we realize that one cannot eat money.

Ai servo is for moving objects so yes. Very fast shutter speeds will be required as well. Focus and shutter are your two challenges here.

If you don't want a shot of them coming toward you, and can get off to the side, then your shutter speeds can be a bit lower provided you can pan with the train to take the shot.
