Silver Star at 100+ mph through Elizabeth

The starburst of sun glare reflecting off the near cab corner of 6.4-million-watt (8,600-horsepower) Amtrak electric locomotive #662 is a crisp spot of sharpness...and just about all the rest of photographer Craig Walker's dramatic, panned-action image is an impressive blur of high-speed motion, as passengers rocket south through New Jersey in excess of the Century Mark on the speedometer.   ---NSC    "Heading to Florida, Amtrak's train 91, the Silver Star, races through the North Elizabeth, New Jersey [station], on March 9th, 2016. This train, originating in New York, NY, is powered by ACS-64 662 and is traveling on the Northeast Corridor at just over 100 miles per hour."
