Orientate point to line

If I have a point feature that sits on a linestring is there some way I can rotate the point so it is orientated to the segment of the line upon which it sits? 

i.e. so I can import gantry objects at known points over a railway or road without having to rotate them manually.

(actually, in an ideal world, if a point sits on a linestring vertex I would like it to be rotated half-way between the angle of the two segments either side of the point.)

Maybe this is a question for the python forum....?
