AFAICS, GAP move path tool doesn't handle the train scaling, perspective 
shifts, rotations, foreground occlusions, and the 3-D/2-D aspects.
All that would have to be managed by hand on a frame-by-frame basis, 
would it not?
These leaves the frame compositing and the tracking, which are really 
the easiest to tackle (at least at my level of expertise).
