I was waiting at Ruggles for a Commuter Rail train to South Station (long story, maybe I’ll tell it at some point). I saw one going the other way, and it was coming in pretty fast. The driver honked the horn, and didn’t seem to be slowing down. As the high-speed Amtrak train sped past at a million miles an hour, I got a picture despite being practically knocked off my feet. Soon after, another high speed train came the other way, and I got another picture. Looking back on it now, I kind of wish I had taken videos. Fun fact: the Acela is the only proper high-speed train in the country. Pretty sad, actually.

Blurry, but you get that feeling of speed when you look at it.
Pretty much the opposite of the other one. I don’t know how I managed to get a picture this clear, as the train was going about a million miles an hour.
