Photography at night

I haven't attempted to take photos at night, but I will get a chance later next week. I have a tripod, and also a night setting on my camera. Should I use this setting, or try altering the aperture / shutter. I have a bridge camera. I want to get some decent shots. Any advice welcome, but I will be offline from Monday evening.

I would probably go for Shutter priority at 30 seconds or just play around with aperture settings. Set it on self timer so you don't move the camera when you press the shutter and don't touch the camera or tripod during the exposure, also make sure the tripod is steady on solid ground.

A lot of it depends on what you're photographing, no 'rules' are entirely set in stone :)

Thanks Olicat. I will be photographing steam locomotives on shed. It will be from the station platform, with a possibility of ground level shots. Time of photo shoot is from 1915 to 2100.
