Blurring Its Way Out of Town

A time exposure provides the illusion that Amtrak’s Capitol Limited is moving at high speed as it departs the station in Cleveland.

The Superliner cars all seem to blur together. The lights on the side of the cars appear as green and red streaks. Some of the red reflecting off the side of the train comes from block signals just east of the station.

The image was made on Aug. 22, 1998, of Train No. 30.
